StoryTime: Be My Valentine

I hope you all had a great weekend, and an even better Valentine’s Day. If you got any presents or eatable goodies, please remember to donate about 20% of your items to my charity ‘I No Wan Suffer For This Life‘. Your girl was very antisocial this weekend, work and my family taking the majority of my time. So this year’s Valentine’s Day didn’t mean a damn thing to me other than extra sleep hours. But fret not, I managed to interrogate certain rats *cough* I mean, friends of mine concerning the proceedings of their special day. One of said rats in particular (He will remain anonymous) was willing to let me share her experience (I can always count on you, my beloved bush rat). So have a read & make your deductions!

For this StoryTime, we’re going to be talking about a topic so controversial, so thought-provoking, so outlandish…..yes that’s right, I’m talking about Shopping!………Don’t give me that look okay?

It’s been a while since our last StoryTime, so hopefully your sense have dulled since then and you’ll be able to make the right deduction. And what will we be talking about today? Food! Or to be more specific, the worst encounter I’ve ever had at a restaurant (if they still have the liver to call themselves a restaurant). So without further ado, let’s get into it, shall we?

On today’s edition, we have a treat. A friend of mine read my last StoryTime, loved it & then tried to put my deductive skills to the test. She told me a story, a wonderful story, concerning a guy she once dated. I failed the test, so I guess I’m not the Sherlock Holmes I thought I was. I asked & received her permission to to use her tale for this week’s StoryTime. Let’s begin!

StoryTime: A Party To Remember

So I wanted to try something new today. I thought it would be interesting to dedicate my Friday posts to a little segment I would like to call Story Time. This would be a section of my blog where I would relate the most random of experiences, both funny and otherwise, fictional or realistic. Part of the fun for you as a reader would be to decide, at the end of each story, whether it’s the truth or an elaborate lie.

How Important Is Your Breakfast To You?

African tradition dictates that breakfast on Saturday mornings are sacred, solely delegated to delicacies you usually don’t have time to enjoy during the week. You could have them on Sundays too, but let’s be honest, most of us are too busy getting ready for church #childofGod.

In our house, two dishes take the spotlight: Okpa (ground Bambara nuts cooked with red oil and seasoning) and Pap (bread boiled in milk). Not a fan of pap, but my close friends are aware that I’m a recovering Okpa addict. I take my rehab meetings very seriously and I’ve managed to drastically reduce my Okpa intake to just once a week.
