Did I mention that
I am now an Aunty, yes oh...my brother’s wife had a bouncing baby boy some
months back and this is the beginning of a new generation in my family. Papa
Sykik and Mama Sykik are first time grannies and their excitement can’t be
contained. The baby is so cute..... God forgive me, I wish babies don’t grow
up... the cuddly, chubby, sweet looking face...they look so innocent, I feel
like “sin” beside any baby.
Anytime I buy gifts
for anyone I make sure I buy something I love and won’t mind using....I have
often times “kolobied” gifts I bought for people because my longer throat won’t
let go of the item. I then go buy something else.....Sykik is a nut case. Who
does something like that? I plead guilty, some items are simply irresistible.
Who ever made it
compulsory that rice (in whatever form, jollof, fried or white rice) and
chicken are the official Christmas meal? I am so looking forward to eating
firewood jollof rice this Christmas; I think Christmas rice tastes
differently.Can anyone remember
visiting Father Christmas, going to amusement park, shopping for Christmas
cloth inside Lagos market? Kai, I don
old finish oh. Back in the days, we use to go from LTV8, NTA channel7, channel
10, channel5 e.t.c for Father Christmas. Wait for this, I was the cry baby of
the house.....Father Christmas scared the shit out of me...I would, scream,
scratch, claw and everything because I just didn’t want to be left alone with
the Father Christmas...if Mama Sykik say make I no enter the Father Christmas grotto,
na wahala be that, because I wanted
the gifts without having to see the scary Father Christmas....it was always a
battle, but someway somehow....I survived each year and came out with my
gifts....hahaaha.... I scare easily till date, forget all this my mouth.
was a season of gifts, Papa Sykik and Mama Sykik knows how to give gifts oh, my
brothers and I got lots of gifts each year. I couldn’t wait for Christmas to
come then, but I don’t know why my parents refuse to give gifts again now that I
am older and married...after all I am still their child nau....abi do people
outgrow Christmas gift and Christmas cloth ni?
Maybe I should sue them, for reneging on their parental duties. Abi, they think have handed over to
Hubby ni, I no gree, Hubby is husband, Papa and Mama Sykik are my parents...I will
start protesting from today.
2014 is gradually
wrapping up. It has been an eventful year and I can’t begin to count my
I have tried to
stay cool, kind, calm and good this year. I have played by the rules and even
stopped applying the “an eye for an eye” rule. I tried not to allow the
“evening go down on my anger” and also had a kind word for my mean colleagues.
Above all, I reduced my chocolate intake and now play #teamwater....... it was
a tough call, but I remained faithful to the cause. I also shopped less, so I
got to save more.
I know I will have
the best Christmas this year if you will be kind enough to reward me for being
a good girl. I am all grown up but I
still believe you exist; I am not like some people (side eyes to Toinlicious,
and Simply mee) who don’t believe you exist.Kindly prove to them that you do make dreams come true. I know you come
in through the chimney (we don’t have chimney in Nigeria sha)...... I will
leave the kitchen window open so you can still sneak in and drop my gift. It won’t be a bad idea if you came calling
with a gift bearing “Sykik, darling. You have
played fair, you have stayed true and though I saw you act like an asshole some
few times, you deserve a memorable Christmas this 2014”:)
Back to my last week post, let me gist you what I heard jare,
I can’t keep it to myself because it won’t be nice to be hoarding gist.......it’s
not a good something to be a gist miser. I was jejely minding my business in the rest room,
trying to do number 2 when I heard ladies as usual discussing about how one very
big “oga at the top” in the office is the one oiling one devoted Muslim sister’s engine. This
sister is like an Alhajaoh, she
covers head, covers body, and her clothes ehn....the
skirt touches ground, the blouses covers her fingers. She doesn’t allow
anything to show at all, at all......in fact the guys complain that she has
ensured that no one, whether man or woman can lust after her. She is often used
as example of how a religious person should be, she doesn’t miss her prayers,
always with her praying rosary and very polite. I am sure some Christian sisters
are envying her comportment sef.
As I hear her name
for rest room, I thought I was hallucinating; it must be a lie, Alhaja gist for
restroom ke, that must be bad belle
people at work........... I quickly comported myself to finish hearing the
story on your behalf *grinning*
Female 1: Do you
know who I saw yesterday at ******* hotel
Female 2: who?
Female 1: Alhaja and she was with our “Oga at the top”
Female 2: she was with,
abi she went for a meeting with....?
Female 1: which
went for a meeting....the way I take see them, it wasn’t a meeting oh
confirms the suspicion I had 2 weeks ago that Oga is the one greasing Alhaja......to
imagine that this babe has been forming holy, holy pass Jesus Christ. Did you
notice how she responded to Oga’s question on her monthly performance during
MPR meeting? She told him he was embarrassing her, hissed and then walked out
of the meeting while muttering under her breath that she was sure he doesn’t
want his wife knowing what and where he goes after office hours. The meeting
hall went quiet as though everyone was in a trance, Oga just continued with the meeting as though nothing happened and I almost
doubted what I heard. I decided to put my detective cap to use and.......... voila,
na so I jamdem for that hotel oh
Female 2: abeg, I am always weary of any babe that
carries Jesus or Allah on top head like gala seller oh, na them do coded runs
pass...wait oh, hope them no see you?
Abi you wan take your appraisial do kite?
My peeps, na this point, my phone ring oh....gosh,
I didn’t realise I had been holding my breath and poo all this while just to
finish hearing hot gist ....I wish I heard the concluding part of the story sha
Will you believe I
heard two ladies conversing in French excitedly while in the rest room, I would
give up my lunch to understand what they were gossiping about......by the way,
when did my company start recruiting French speaking nationals.... I know they
were gossiping abi what else will 2 females be doing in the rest room aside
number 1 and 2. All weapons fashioned against me not to hear toilet gist ehn, I
bind and cast into the fiery furnace.
It be like say this
gist is dry sef....as the story no
