A VERY IRRITATING POST! BLAH!

SO! IT IS FRIDAY! I am gonna rock like is my BIRTHDAY! {Psquare lyrics}... I lie! I am lying on my couch resting to get ready for work tonight ... sigh! Talking of work, my co-worker didn't come to work for 3 whole days!! She came yesterday and no explanation whatsoever! She owns me none though! But we were worried about her, wondering if she was sick! The O.Y.O attitude in work places does not encourage team work. I use the bathroom twice on every shift, and wetin my eyes dey see, na wa! The other day, I nearly stepped on a drop of menstrual blood on the floor! Another day, I saw a syringe on the floor ... maybe the person is diabetic? (Nitty, don't jump into any conclusion!) The most annoying one was the 'neat freak' who laid plenty tissues on the toilet seat before use, and left it for her 'maid' to remove after use! SERIOUSLY? 
see the mess someone left for another to remove before use!


Talking of 'neat freak', there is one like that , during break, she will lay sheets of paper towel on the table before placing her keys, phones , plates and her hands. I was surprised one day, as I walked into the break room, this lady had her feet propped up on the table! A PUBLIC TABLE IN A PUBLIC PLACE FOR EVERYONE TO EAT ON!!! I was so angry! Due to logistics, paper towels were not available for 4 days, and the 'neat freak' placed her items and ate like that on the table. In my mind, I was like, is the table not too dirty for you to eat and put your things, 'madame'? The housekeeper tries a lot to keep the break room neat, but some people are pigs in human form! 

There were 5 co-workers that always messed up the break room, that the housekeeper warned them several times before reporting them to the manager. These guys will fling the pillows on the floor, knock their drinks over, won't put their trash in the bin, I mean, they were behaving as if they were in their houses and their 'momma' clean up after them! 4 of them eventually resigned while the 5th is now quiet as a 'mouse' and behaves himself, now the break room is cleaner without them! Still on the issue of break room, in my former place of work, the janitor did not clean the break room! He only took out the trash! I don't know the reason, but I want to assume it was because of the mess some people left behind ... I mean, WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO CLEAN AFTER YOURSELF IN A PUBLIC PLACE? Your home can be a pigsty for all I care, but in a public place, BEHAVE YOURSELF! Hmm, impossicant abi? Afterall, charity begins at home! I remember someone left a bottle of soda on the table, I came back after my days off and it was still there! Did the person travel to Jupiter? NA WHO BE YA SERVANT?!
Who knows, it could be a diabetic person huh?


See, ehen, what people don't pay for, they don't value! The mammoth waste in the break room is on another level! Our employers provides bottled water, coffee, creamer and sugar, sometimes food when we do great, and many goes into the trash! Recently, I observed that the supplies are getting reduced, it seems the new management have noticed the waste, and I don't blame them if they are trying to cut overhead costs, at least it will add to our bonus at the end of the year o jare! My former place of work no send any employee message jor! Water dem no give, talkless of coffee! Talking about my old place of work (I have been using 'talking' too much ba? Don't mind me o jare) , ever since I left, 4 people have told me nobody has been able to continue my duty wella, I took it as one of those nice things people say, until I met an assistant manager from a different department who told me same, last week. So I went to check out their rating and saw that they are at the bottom patapata! When the management was only concerned about their bonus and profit nko? They let go of a good manager because they said he was not aggressive enough to meet their target and put a lady who used her gra-gra to drive the staff (s) away. 


OK! My guys, daz all. Thanks for reading. ADIOS!

P.s I fell asleep while typing, so I am posting it late.

I AM NOT HAPPY!

What do men really want? I mean, what do they want from their wives? A sexy woman? A good cook? A clean home? A faithful wife? WHAT THE H**L, DO THEY WANT??? Whenever I read the qualities men want from women, I summarized it to 3 things; 1)Sex 2) Food and  3)Neatness. Some women can have 2 out of 3, some 1, but when a woman has the whole 3, wetin the man still want for outside? Make unah helep me ask them oo?  Me, food is just average! YET! A man left his wife that has 3/3 for a woman that has 2/3! He complained his mistress is messy!

A neighbour is divorcing his wife of many years, because his mistress asked him to! The most annoying part is that he is snubbing his children because she told him not to be close to them! And lied to family and friends that his wife was the one that sent him out of the house!!! Whereas, he drove out with tires squealing after throwing his suitcases in his car and she running out to hold him. The daughter of Jezebel wants him to sell the house, take his own share to buy a house for her! But that ain't gonna happen! His wife's lawyer is fighting seriously against it! If they were Africans I will say, she don use the remote control in her villa! But they are Americans, so I just don't know what kind of spell he is under!

She wept , that my heart ached to see such a beautiful woman with a home to be proud of, hurting so much! GOSH! I wish could just get my hands on that S.O.B and shake some sense into his head! HOW CAN YOU LEAVE YOUR FAMILY FOR A CONCUBINE??? A divorcee with younger kids than his, for that matter!!! No be say nah single girl without baggages sef!  He wants to 'throw' his own kids out of the house they have grown up in, to go and live in an apartment as his stupid b**** does! I pity the mistress oo, yes, I do, because my people say, cane used to beat the first wife is hanging on the ceiling..... and what makes her think, if a man can snub kids that came out of his loins,  he will love her own kids that came out of the loins of another man? Ode oshi! 

He got a big surprise when his mistress brought up the 'will you marry me? question! She wants him to hasten the divorce proceedings and marry her asap! He rejected the marriage proposal because he wants to eat his cake and still have it! He got a rude shock when she threw him out of her apartment! He has been sleeping in hotels and his car! IMAGINE! A man that has a lovely house! He has lost weight, because of the wahala he has brought upon himself! I realized that some people are just concerned about their own happiness and pleasure! 

Sincerely, I am hoping there will be a reconciliation before the divorce proceedings is finalized, because she still loves him and had forgiven him several times in the past over his numerous affairs, she thought this affair that broke their marriage will pass away as usual like the others, but ...SIGH! Other men have been telling him, YOU NEVER LEAVE YOUR WIFE AND CHILDREN FOR A MISTRESS! A MISTRESS SHOULD KNOW HER PLACE ... ON THE BED!!!

IT IS SO REFRESHING!

It is so refreshing!

...to see people dressed casually in their everyday clothes!
...to know there is no special chair or place for anyone!
...to listen to quiet music without deafening sounds from speakers!
...to be spared the special numbers and play-acting by people!
...to hear the soul touching words without shouting and theatrics!
...to call the shepherd by his name and not mummy or daddy!
...to know emphasis is not laid on giving!

It is refreshing to experience a different way to worship GOD without playing church!

WELCOME to September everyone!
It is the 9th month, which signifies the month of delivery for every pregnant woman,
so shall it be, everything we desired for, shall be finally given to us and every obstacles on our path shall be overcome in the mighty name of our saviour, AMEN!

THE PLAIN TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH!

A Nigerian relocated to be with his brother. 3 months later he was sending money back home without his brother's knowledge. When his brother found out, he was shocked and angry because he made him looked bad in presence of their parents since he always complained how difficult it is and sends what he can afford. This caused a rift between them, and  he told his brother from henceforth he will be paying his share of  rent, utility bills and grocery.

A sister moved from 9ja to stay with her sibling. She got a job with a pay a bit higher than minimum wage and she was searching for higher wage. Her sibling discouraged her because she has no children and financial obligations, so her tax return to the government will be high, and she might not be able to pay back and be in debt to IRS! This caused a big ish between the sisters!

A family was accommodated by his elder brother. He does not pay any bill or  buy grocery. One day, there was no food at home, he took his family out to eat! This provoked the host and quarrel ensued!  He is being asked to move out as I write.

THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE AMONGST NIGERIANS! I am spilling all these because, this problem is becoming so rampant and a lady is expecting her sibling over soon. She is being advised by a friend to lay down the rules immediately she set foot in her house to avoid stories like above! And what are the rules?

1}Wash your own dishes after eating!
2}Prepare your own meal or for everybody as the case might be!
2}Don't send anybody on errand,  D.I.Y!
3}Do chores in the house without being told! 
4}Immediately you start earning income, pay your share of bills!
5}After you have learnt how things are done, move out!

Harsh? Well, this is the plain truth and nothing but the truth to avoid squabbles!

Moreover, 2  families/siblings/relatives/friends cannot LIVE together in the same house in this obodo oyibo,  quarrel go shele! If it is not the bill sharing formula, it will be cooking,  grocery shopping, or chores, or cleanliness, or baby sitting the children. And it can either be the host or guest who wants to take advantage of the other!

Adios!

MIDNIGHT THOUGHTS

I didn't know when hubby came back from work sef! I just woke up past midnight, went out of my room to check our kids, hubby was sleeping on the couch in the parlour, went into the kitchen because I was hungry ... too tired to prepare anything, went back to my room, hubby woke up to sleep on the bed, he does not like to disturb me whenever he sees me sleeping on my day off, I tried to sleep back ... NO WAY!! Hungry dey wire me! I don't want to eat bread or cereal or chips ... I want solid food. I wonder what hubby ate sef? I will ask him when he wakes up. Everybody in my home, has learned to take care of themselves in the kitchen. I simply cook the stew and soup.

I was just lying down pondering if this can ever happen in 9ja? Whether I am working or not, will my husband come home from work after beating the traffic to take care of himself in the kitchen? Or I will allow such freedom in my kitchen with the harsh economy and relatives living with us? WHOSAI!!! My guys, ENVIRONMENT IS EVERYTHING!  You see my people, whenever I tell you all not to swallow hook and bait of what some married women say, many disagree with me. What works in a certain environment might not work in another! OUR ENVIRONMENT SHAPES US! A Nigerian man came visiting few weeks ago, he saw his host doing most of the grocery shopping, preparing his own meal, doing laundry, and babysitting, that he said, he can never live in America! I understood where he was coming from, because that is not the norm back home, but by the time he comes here to settle down, he will begin to adjust by force by fire without him knowing sef! Nobody go tell am how far!

I am more happier and content in my marriage unlike when I was in Nigeria! NO INTERFERENCE of any sort! It is just my husband and I! Last month was our 15th year anniversary. We still argue on issues, but get it resolved quickly. Regardless of this, it still does not give me the right to condemn or judge Nigerian wives living in Nigeria when they take certain decisions in their marriage. When I read comments in blogs especially from diasporas, I am like PUHLEASEE! If you find yourself in that same situation living in Nigeria, you might be surprised at your own decision!

 OK! I am so hungry ... lemme go and make tea then ... I have lost few pounds by force by fire not because I am dieting or trying to lose weight, simply because sometimes I eat once a day... I only ate rice when I came back from work yesterday morning, before I slept off ... woke up, watched a movie and slept back ... let me go and check my weight sef... am back! 260.2 LBS! ...That is about 118kg right. HMM! 

Last month.

SIBLING RIVALRY.

I am part of a family chat group, our grandfather is the connection. The main objective is to bridge the gap of communication between us. It has been fun for the past few months, until yesterday, out of the blues, someone raised the issue of money. SHIOR! He wants us to contribute money,  so as to have a grand-end of the year party, help those in school, help the ones still struggling and help any of us to travel abroad. I politely disagreed with the suggestion because money matter always cause wahala. ...and of course, they came for me! Did I argue? No O! I just kukuma waka comot from the place, I don't want trouble! My eldest cousin apologized on their behalf, I came back, and when I got the support from others who also did not agree, the ring leader of the suggestion left the group! 




You see, some stayed with us while growing up, so I know their entitlement mentality which  caused certain ish in the past! After so many years with us becoming parents, I thought, they would have outgrown it! WHOSAI! I was mistaken! WHY SPOIL A GOOD PLATFORM WITH MONEY TALK ABEG? WHO IS NOT STRUGGLING TO SURVIVE IN THIS WORLD HUH? WHAT MAKES THEM THINK ONE IS DOING BETTER THAN THE OTHER EHEN? If you want to give, GIVEEE! Don't force others to do so abeggy! WHO NO GET MONEY PROBLEM? Even the rich are crying in this present economy in Nigeria! Diasporas are living from paychecks to paychecks! Last week, a visitor from Nigeria got into financial constraints here, he was so surprised that nobody could lend him $500! He has money in his account back home, because of the exchange rate palava. He was able to get $250 after much searching. WAS EVERYBODY NOT SURVIVING BEFORE THE PLATFORM WAS CREATED? Will I leave my own immediate family members to go and help extended relatives who will turn around tomorrow to say YOU ARE NOT GOOD?!


Money and spouse choices are the 2 main things that causes sibling rivalry in families that can span for generations! And we wonder why the white man keep to himself and will say I have not seen my sibling for a long time? Simply because the society does not encourage enabling and sees everyone independent of each other! WHAT OBLIGATION DO I OWN THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE MY RELATIVES? What ever help I will render is a PRIVILEGE! And NOT A RIGHT!

I AM IN LOVE!

The feeling of new found love is exhilarating! You can never get enough of that person, always wanting to be in his/her presence......that is how I am now with Steve Crown's ......................................................................... worship song, You are great! This song has been on replay mode in my phone and Laptop for 7 days now! Please don't judge me for loving someone else apart from my husband ..... he knows and understands, I told you he is very liberal minded. WHOSAI! Not when it comes to infidelity oo. I have a selection of my all time favourite worship songs that I play but this particular worship song captured my entire being and soul! I can't explain.


source


Our love story is like what you read and watch on tv and books .... a chance meeting and the cupid shot the love arrow into my heart, and I am crazily in love with the worship. I was listening to my new playlist as I worked, and the song came up, I was like; WHATTT??!! I didn't  download that! I allowed it to run it's course since I was busy. Surprisingly, I enjoyed it. On my break, I checked it out and it was by an UNKNOWN ARTISTE! I asked Mr Google using the lyrics, and I found him!  I sent it to my friend, because I like sharing wonderful things like this. TAA! Not when it comes to my husband sha, I am verrryy selfish about that! She too liked it very much and said she will send it to her loved ones also. You see how the love is spreading huh? OH! I also made it my ringtone, see why I say I am crazily and wonderfully in love ehen? Why won't I be? A very beautiful song, video, from a beautiful voice and good looking man! I couldn't resist saying that! #wink# I love that white suit! So did my friend! ahaha.


source


It has top my all time favourite love song Olo mi by Tosin Martins. I can dance to  this song anytime and anyday! It happens to be my ringtone for my husband. Well, like romance writers do say, you can love two people the same time .... you can be IN love with one and you can love the other! I seriously don't understand it! All I know is that I love both songs! Each plays a different role to me! One emotionally the other spiritually, and I am satisfied.

HAPPY NEW MONTH EVERYONE!

RANT!

Hello my guys, I am sorry for the late update....I really want to be posting every week, but my body no be wood oo (kai! remove that naughty thought from ya heads!) I now sleep off immediately i get home because I have stopped taking coffee and tylenol, I don't want my body to get used to it....when I wake by 12pm, I eat, bath do some chores and back to sleep by 4pm. Today, I said, I must update! I am watching shoki and laughing as I type, we are talented abeg! 

HA! So much has been happening in my place of work o! Abeg, theory is different from practical ....as always! I tried to do all I learnt during my orientation and computer training, but I realized today, that OYO (on your own) was my case! ahaha! A colleague had advised me before to pretend I don't know when issues arise and another said  more duties will be added to my schedule since I work too hard. Of course, I didn't listen because ITK is my middle name and it has been shoved up my a** this week! It hurts, I won't pretend, but I have gotten over it and re-strategized! I have sent my zeal on vacation and dumping all my training into the trash! It is BS!

I now know why people say men managers are better than women managers! I remember my friend and cousin nearly resigned from their jobs because of their female boss. Believe me, some female managers are really a piece of s***! There is one in my place of work that no good word is said about her! Some employees resigned over the years because of her high-handed patronizing attitude ... you know how an arrogant person tries to be humble but it just comes off! I just look at her like a power drunk b****! This type of person like people to be following her like mumu, anyone that divert from that path gets a vindictive reprisal from her. Coworkers said they were surprised at her attitude, that, before she got to that position, she was quiet as a mouse, when luck shined on her and was promoted to that position, she bared her fangs! I believe she never dreamt of getting to that position and when she did.....
source


Nevertheless, my place of work is good, in all fairness, I have to simply learn to follow what others are doing...be seen and be silent. ...OK, it is past 4pm, my bedtime! ADIOS!

CHANGE!

MY PEOPLE! We are now trying oo. Nollywood is going places! I couldn't believe the 2 movies I just watched in Netflix is from my father's land! I gave it 5 stars! I doff my 'gele' for the actresses and producers for making me proud! A standing ovation for ROAD TO YESTERDAY and FIFTY! Yep! I am shouting out the titles because I believe in giving dues when it is deserved.
source
I am a passive fan of Nollywood movies, I mostly watched movies produced by Tunde Kelani, Tunde Ogidan and Kunle Afolayan. These 2 movies I just watched were well edited, dialogues tight and the producers captured the beautiful places in Nigeria .... swe-et! {In Panda's voice}. I also like the movies; Mr and Mrs, Irapada, Figurine, ties that bind and few I cannot remember their titles right now. Nse Etim, Dakore, Akindele, Genevieve, Mercy and Omotola are my fav actresses. Epic movies are my all time fav! Anything that has history or traditional background in it, I watch, hence Asian films are on my fav list....hmm...using fav too much qui? #grins#
source
Change is the only constant thing that is dynamic in life and Nollywood is changing for good and I look forward to watching more on Netflix on my days off. Talking of change, I have changed my perspective about some issues in life because of my  experiences and environment. Hence, not advisable to say never to anything.

I still believe in Nigeria for a positive change, which starts from within us as individuals! And it is a gradual process just as Nollywood has done starting from the days of living in bondage to road of yesterday and in the next 50 years Nollywood will be a household name like their international counterparts.

Gracias!

p.s; I can't believe i have been awake since 1.00am...almost 9am now....watching new episodes of Jane the virgin as I update .... funny....and relaxing. Rogelio is my fav character in the show...that guy is something else...as in?!!! AHAHAHA

p.s.s; I chose a small blue laptop few weeks back instead of the big black type I always had, very easy to carry around and I now wear red lipstick to work  .... hubby was surprised because I seldom wear make-up....that is CHANGE! #wink# Adios!

BABY SHOWER WITH 9JA FLAVOUR!

.....so! My dear readers, as I was saying last week, before I digressed to another post, our 9ja people know how to add flavour to any culture they adopt. Baby shower was imported from abroad by our celebrities, which is gradually becoming a norm in certain circles ....no, the average 9ja woman is yet to practice this adopted culture, because she wants to see omo-mo{baby} first before celebrating. But diasporas are not bothered ..... since they are in 'Rome', they want to behave like the 'Romans'... telling the sex of the baby ...which in 9ja is a 'top' secret the mother guides until her EDD. Abi you want make 'them' change am for her belly? Yes o, we are superstitious. And some scan results don't come out right....stories abound!

.....so! I jokingly asked if the party was a baby shower or naming ceremony? Because of the orishirishi; Jollof rice ati fried rice, assorted meat, asun, cake, chin-chin etc. 'Yes, baby shower with 9ja flavour' my hubby replied while laughing, infact that was how I got the title for this post. The few baby showers I have seen here is simple with light refreshments and over within 2 hours, that,with $100-$200, one can have a nice baby shower without going overboard; soda,cake, chips, cookies, candies and small chops. Daz all!

.....as we all know, baby showers here are usually organised by friends or family or colleagues, to help the mother-to-be with baby items and the celebrant don't need to go buying that special dress to wear that day, as I have seen some of our 9ja women do, anything nice in the wardrobe will do, and the celebrant do not spend a dime in the preparation but some of our 9ja women are the ones that spend for it! 

.....em, the question on some if not many Nigerians mind is; Do one still bring baby gift on the naming ceremony day after giving one during the baby shower? I have no answer! Simply use your discretion. What I do is that, whatever amount I have decided to spend, I split it into two and buy the gifts, give one during the baby shower, the other during the naming ceremony. Q.E.D! What I see here is that, after the woman puts to bed, she does baby christening months later inviting people and have a party. 

Nevertheless, not all diasporas have baby showers, some prefer to have only the naming ceremony. Personally, I always like to wait to know the sex of my baby after delivery....so, baby shower is not my thing...after I born pickin, come and celebrate with me. Ese o. (Thank you.)

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY AMERICA! YE-HAWWW!

TRYING TO KEEP HEADS ABOVE WATERS!

I know I had a post planned for this week, but something else came up that needs to be addressed urgently. Listen! Diasporas have complained several times that dollars don't grow on trees, and the streets of America are not paved with gold, but these obviously gets ignored by some people who thinks that, they are the only ones that have expenses or problems or we are lying.

 A  man lost his job in Nigeria, his in-law helped him to process his relocation.They vacated a room for him while the kids slept in the parlour. For the 14 months he stayed with them, while working, he did not contribute a nickel to bills or groceries which was causing a grudge in the heart of the in-law. What broke the camel's back was when the in-law kids missed their school bus, they walked back home, and thought 'uncle' would drive them to school, he used the second car while their parents shared the other one, but he didn't because he said, he was nobody's help! This caused a quarrel between him and his in-laws and he moved out. Of course, he would have his own side of the story, but the bottom line is that, he was insensitive to the situation and has this Nigerian entitlement mentality, which is so annoying!

SEE! Diasporas have their own problems to shoulder on regardless if they earn 6 figures or not! The more you earn, the higher your tax and bills,The financial request is not just from one person but many, Imagine sending $100-$200 to 3-5 people from your paycheck....wetin go remain? Funny enough, my co-worker who is of a different race was complaining the same thing! I was like, 'so not only my Africa people? Imagine, lending money to a family friend when in 9ja, before he paid sef, na wahala, he eventually paid only half, and the balance was history! Only for him to call few days ago to say hi, next thing he was talking about a business venture...again as he did back home, then pinged today saying we should not forget him....AS IN SERIOUSLY DUDE? An extended relative has been calling me for the past few days, knowing his precedents since he grew up with us, I ignored! I don't want to start what I cannot finish! HABA! I picked calls of another relative whenever he called, so he called late one day, after I just rocked my baby to sleep, I told him to please call back, that I wanted to sleep. I pinged him when I woke up, he ignored me, that was how he became cold! ARE YOU F****** KIDDING ME BROS? So to avoid history repeating itself, I rather keep to my lane.

Let me tell you guys something, many diasporas don't have savings! Just as people back home live from hand to mouth, so are many diasporas living from paycheck to paycheck. It takes a very prudent person to save a little by depriving oneself of certain things, and I personally find it annoying that if my parents and siblings don't disturb me at all, but are rather concerned about my well being, why will I give my hard earned dollar to distant relatives and friends who were managing their lives before I relocated huh? At the end of the day, some have better assets than us! At the end of the day, it is 'you are not good' when they cannot get what they want from you again! A casual friend of ours, have all his siblings overseas, so nobody asks anyone for anything, rather the demands were from his relatives, when he got tired he blocked them! It is the tax return that many use for projects back home. A diaspora said, his cousin made an off comment that he wished he was the one abroad, he would have done better for the entire family. He then asked him, if he expected him to leave his bills and send him his entire paycheck before he knew he was helping?

As this might sound so harsh, it is simply reacting to pressure! You just have to hear some diasporas rant and people back home will feel sorry and ashamed of themselves! No offense intended, I am just saying it as it is! And some diasporas are not helping issues by living a fake and credit life to impress families and friends at home. Houses here are beautiful, streets and roads well paved, swimming pools and recreational centers are everywhere, so posing in front of any to take pictures does not mean they have money rolling into their bank accounts. Growing big in size does not mean diasporas  have so much to eat that it is outpouring through their kitchen window and door, it is simply because most of the foods are fattening...organic food is more expensive than inorganic. Burger, pizza, chips and soda are cheaper than home-cooked meals. Infact, it is the poor that eat chicken mostly here, so forget all that display of food on social platform. And diasporas look 'frosh' because of the climate. Clothes are bought at great sales! I got a black pant/trouser for $1:00! And I am rocking it well...even some kids clothes for $3:00! When I put these clothes on, some will think it cost much! We do all these so as to be able pay all bills. We are just trying to keep our heads above waters, and some insensitive people are trying to drag us under...which ain't gonna happen to me!

Good morning to y'all...it's past 7am...going back to sleep...my off day. YAY!

EATING DOG FOOD?

Good morning my blog readers, it's being 10 days since my last update and I am sorry. Not that I don't have things to talk about, I am either distracted or tired. I tried using my phone when on break, but the auto-correct is very annoying! Laptop remains the best to me. With the kids on summer holiday, my baby will not be climbing all over me now, so I will have time to update immediately my muse visits me.......hopefully.  

E---eHEN! You know there are some people who are ready to buy anything that has crossed the  7 seas to 9ja chei?  Infact, I know of 2 persons like that fa! I only watched in amusement, as long as it makes them sleep well at night, which one concern me! I remembered, I tried to advise one of them, her response was enough for me to mind my damn business! It serves me right o jare!  SO! She had a handle-free tooth brush she used to brush her baby's teeth which was brought from overseas, she would  insert her finger into it and brushed the teeth.


I was just strolling through different aisles as I shopped...last year, when my eyes fell on a handle-free tooth brush, as I moved away, I realized I was in the pet section....WAIT A MINUTE! I moon-walked back and took a closer look...nope, I did not take any picture because I had my 'pangolo' phone with me that time! OH MY GOODNESS! I whispered within me, 'I hope it is not what I think it is o!'On further inspection, I noticed it was different yet similar!These were bigger. I let out a sigh of relief! The thought that went through my head that few seconds ehen? Nah dog toothbrush dem send for pickin?  


This morning, I went shopping immediately I closed....holiday is here...so plenty snacks must dey for house oo...when again, as I was browsing different sections to feed my eyes and save in my head items that are on sales, I came across clothes for dogs in the pet aisle. I paused and looked at it well, because I have seen similar clothes in infants! YEP! I took pictures this time, thanks to the 'better' phone I now have. 



 Apart from the middle dress that has a label, which of the remaining 4 dress(es) is for a dog or baby?


The reason I am writing this post is because; You know, we don't have that habit of reading label on items we buy back home, we also have dubious people who are after quick profit, and some visitors to overseas make shopping mistakes, like I did, that  I bought tomatoes sauce instead of paste and salt without iodine. Some people might have bought items not meant for human use! The orishirishi things made for pets alone ehen?...#whistles#....is same for human beings! Is it candy? Abi cookies? Abi toys? Or diaper? Only, the labels and pictures on the items distinguishes them. But if the label attached to the item falls off nko?  Anyways, it is no news that much money is spent on pets than on humans by some people...so just be careful of what you buy or take, because you hear it has crossed the sea. Please, I am not trying to pour san-sand in anybody's garri, just enlightening, since we all learn everyday. Thank you.

Next time, I will talk about Baby shower with 9ja flavour in yankee.
