October 2014 haff finish



I don’t think I have ever heard or walked into a group of women discussing politics, the political terrain, political parties, the price of crude oil, crude oil theft in the Niger Delta, the power of incumbency, world politics e.t.c....... all I have heard are women

·         in my office restroom discussing diapers, baby developments, brazilian/peruvian hair, make-up, shoes, clothes, bags, vacation among other “womanly” gist
·         in my home church discussing how to be a better wife, the power of a praying woman, training Godly children, housekeeping issues et.c.

Is this a case of “wetin concern agbero with overload” or a case of Sister Sykik is vain, I need to start carrying these legs to where intellectual discourse is taking place and stop wakaing  to where aproko gist is taking place. 

I am not a lost case sha, I engage in intellectual discourse when I find myself among men, in fact, the men on my floor in the office discuss football so much I had to start following premiership league because I started feeling “one kain” when they mention Ronaldo, Messi, Benzema, Drogba and others.....I had to up my knowledge of European football and quickly registered myself under Chelsea fan club( this is Hubby’s club and it’s better to support where my bread is being buttered).

The guys also discuss Nigerian politics, and it’s a battle of which party is better – APC or PDP, when they start arguing like this, I step back listen and then also put my mouth to fuel the discussion...now I know all about caucus meetings, why Amaechi is angry, that it is an open secret that President Jonathan is coming back, that APC means Asiwaju Personal Company ati be-be-lo.....thanks to them I am politically vast and won’t look lost when anyone mentions any political jargon, I have idea and last time I checked "idea is need" .........I dey kampe, you can try and ask me when elections are taking place in Nigeria , in case you don’t know it’s year 2015 oh and I know that there will be elections on Valentine’s day sef........hehehe......don’t try me oh, Sister Sykik, wetin bring Valentine’s day into this election matter discussion....*bbm rolling eyes*

What is the essence of this post sef, even me doesn’t know oh.....wetin “konsine” una with my knowledge of politics, I don’t know, why am I subjecting you to reading this post, I don’t know, maybe I am trying to re affirm to myself that I am not so vain after all............I just stumbled into another toilet gist in the women’s rest room...... do you want to hear what I heard........ say “Yay” in the comment section, just maybe the "yays" will have it...........however, truth be told, it’s easier to do aproko than task the brain about what is GDP and how it affects the price of garri in mile 12 market.

Have a blissful weekend sweethearts......I love you more than agege bread and ewa aganyin

  1. Hehehe...sistah Sykik cannot be vain...lailai

    Seriously, you won't find me initiating such a topic in the midst of women...very funny. Maybe 'We' are just too intellectual to bother discussing kwe kwe issues like the premiership or PDP where other trending global issues like vacations, Peruvian and all the other vians dey worry the ministry of home affairs...

    I say 'yay' 'yay'...*amebo of lyf*

    Wishing you a beautiful November, sis.

  4. I am just thanking God for my mum as I read this.When she and I are together or on the phone 50 % of the discussion is politics and the way she tells it makes it sound like gossip.'Ha! These Burkina Faso people have charged o. They started rioting and burning everything because they dont want their president to continue. How can somebody even be there for 27 years sef?' etc. So I have no choice but to be educated about these things.

  5. Me, I discuss business o. Trust me. However, I don't talk about Nigerian politics. I believe it has too much ability to break my heart, and give me headache cos I am very passionate. So I just steer clear.

      Even though I like Aproco gist, by the way Yay to the toilet gist I like to have intelligent discourse too. For me its mostly tech, HR, books, sometimes politics

  8. hehehehehehe I dunno why ooo, but i started laughing once i read the Title of the post... Happy New month to you too Mzz Sykik heheh nawa ooo.. So APC means Asiwaju Personal company? lmao! now thats Epic... I think men and women are kinda wired in a different way hence men never enjoy women gist and vice versa... Anyways sha, i believe like you said "Idea is key ooo", so there is no harm in knowing a little of this and a little of that. @ Chelsea and pitching your tent where your bread is buttered.. Hmmnnn if my Woman was Chelsea ehn, I would break up with her ASAP. :) No love can overcome my anger and dislike for ""THE BLUES"" **Shines Teeth..

    P.S: One day amma go to the ladies to eave drop ooo.. But how come women feel more comfortable gisting there any way? Well In Sykiks voice, what is my concern?? **Sips limca. :) Cheers Bubba. :)
