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!

Holidays: Expectations Vs Reality

Why hello my lovelies, and Happy 2021!! May this year bring you a flat stomach, a fat wallet and an unending supply of face masks and sanitizers. Yes I know, it’s been a hot minute since I posted anything. I’ve been busy……or lazy……same thing, doesn’t matter. The important thing is that I’m back to disturb your lives again. Did you miss me? Of course you did (Who wouldn’t miss a gem like moi?). How did you find the Christmas holidays? I’m talking about those of us that were lucky enough to travel to different locations to get high on palm wine while the rest of you unfortunate souls were stuck in one place, getting more ashy by the day. Christmas has always been my favourite part of the year and my family & I spent the better part of it in our village. However, I had long suspected that things wouldn’t turn out the usual way I expected them to because of the pandemic (Thank you for that COVID). It pains me to say that I was proven right. Read on and see what I mean.

What To Expect During The Christmas Season

Que the music, it’s that time of the year again, were we’re all supposed to be merry, jolly or whatever it is that society dictates to us so that we don’t end up on the Naughty List with no presents. Personally, I wouldn’t mind being a Grinch this year because there’s nothing festive about NHIS people lurking around my neighbourhood, waiting for me to leave my house so that I can become an unfortunate lab-rat for their new and improved palliative (They’ve taken off their uniforms and are now going about in plain clothes…….Mumu-ism is contagious this period). Anyway, like I was saying, there’s just something about the month of December in general that instills in everyone a certain ginger to outdo themselves. As of such, as soon as the 1st of December rolls around, you start to notice some tell-tale signs that the Christmas Mania is about to begin.

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? Shopping is a very stressful, serious business, ill-fitted for the faint of heart. So get off your high horse and have a read. Let’s see if you can make the right deduction this time round.

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!
