Nothing to write….so much to say…see my life….
Sister-in-law: Sykik, come here, I want to talk to you
Sykik: Yes ma
SIL: Sykik, God will answer our prayers in Jesus name. I was with my Baba Deji for seven years before I got pregnant for him. I know what I went through, from one holy water to another, from one mountain to another. What are you and your husband doing about this thing? I hope you have both gone to the hospital…shebi you know this our husbands don’t even want to imagine that anything is wrong with them…
Sykik (fidgeting on her toes): Yes ma
SIL: ehn…ehn…sometimes you need to leave all this big name hospitals you are going to , they collect plenty money and nothing to show for it, look for a small by-the-corner-cheap one…… they are also very good oh.
Sykik: Yes ma…
SIL: Also, get closer to your mother-in-law….you should take leave from your office, all this work, work, travel today, travel tomorrow is not good. Take some weeks off and go and cry to your mother-in-law…tell her “mummy, I am here”….. “What are you doing about this my situation?”
SIL: Yes oh…you will tell her, mummy, you must do something oh….you can’t be watching me like this
Sykik: Yes ma….ehhhmmm….my Hubby is calling me…
SIL: ok. Oya, go and come back quick
Abeg, my friends what do you think….that I carried my two “tontinrin” leg back to continue the monologue …mbanu
See wetin Aunty Flo dey take my eye see..... ehn….Aunty Flo had better start avoiding me because…I will soon place a ransom on her head. Lol…
I can’t get over myself with laughter ….please, make una helep me ask my sister-in-law, when my mother-in-law started possessing pregnancy inducing powers.-->My darlings, you should have seen the seriousness on her face, no be small thing oh.
P.S.: I know she means well and she wants me to join my mother-in-law in her “operation Sykik must be pregnant praying mission”.I am not sad or crying oh…I am only sharing my day-to-day TCC experiences….. just maybe someday, someone might read this blog , , realise someone also went through this phase and soared above the tides
