It has been a while since I put anything up, weird as it may sound to some people, I have been busy, very busy.
The reason for my busyness is the first myth that needs to be dispelled right now.
Myth 1 – Government workers don’t do any work: Says who? Says the people that don’t work for the government. I slaved for 6 straight hours on Friday. I have been working non-stop for a while now and its going to continue for a while longer. I thought working for the government involved Facebook, late start times and early closing times. Myth totally busted.
Myth 2 – Road travel in Nigeria is cheaper than air travel: Men, that one sef na lie o. I made the mistake of travelling by road a week ago. Abuja to Lagos; Air(27k), Road(3.5k). If you do happen to go by road though there are some more values to add which I state below:
Time to recover (1week plus)
Hospital bills (5k on average)
Myth 3 – Air hostesses are hot: As a young boy growing up, air hostesses were classed in the same league as the baywatch hotties. I am grown up and I have flown in various airlines and realised that it is a big lie at least in Nigeria. I have seen fat, spotted, pimpled, God’s own creations and the occasional beauty with plenty attitude. Aero and Arik are the biggest culprits. I no blame them sha, I blame Zenith and GTB. Myth busted.
Myth 4 – Youth service is a sure sex avenue: I heard this in the run up to my 3weeks in camp. I reached camp expectant and was sorely disappointed. All stories of nookie all over the place were lies. Myth also busted.
Took a trip to my village this weekend. A proper village people. My grandma’s burial. The last grandmother I have. Mixed feelings, but I guess its one thing we can be happy about. I am in my village and I can blog… Awesome
Thanks Msluffa, OhJ, and my dearest Kiah. It has indeed been a while.
Single Nigerian Man
Saw my grandad cry today. He is 84 and for some reason that touched me more than anything else that happened to me today. Married for 60years and it just ends… Puts some things in perspective.
Disclaimer: once again this was done with my phone so I don’t know how it will look. No spell checks either.
With prayer and some trembling I shall press post.
