In which I get a proposal

I got this love letter this morning:

To my darling Ginger,

You are the sugar in my tea, the baby wen dey make my heart beat pu pu pu. If I no fit tell you korokoro eye make I put am in writing you this letter.
I look you every day you walk through our yard. Na wa ooh my  tongue dey always hang out. So now that you know will you marry me? I will make a good husband and you the mother of our plenty children. I see you have the back for it.

Your handsome loving man(husband)

Chidioke  Bigman*

Ps
Always look back when I dey whistle to call you na

Toinlicious, what do you have to say?


#Update on Kat

The late Kat actually left a suicide note in which she bid adieu to her family and friends and all who have met and loved her. She tried to explain that she has always had this darkness engulfing her and had tried so hard to escape it but couldn’t and at this point was unable to fight it anymore. I guess this is depression with a capital D!
I will still reiterate this ‘May her soul now find the peace that eluded her on earth, Amen. And may we be better shepherds Amen. And if you can..try and think generous thoughts  about her.

Some of the contents of Michael Jackson’s home sold at an auction raked in over $1,000,000. Three times their original cost. Apart from inflation, I trust that his die fans will be willing to fork over their last savings to get their hands on his bits and pieces!
Wonder if this is to settle his debts or because the family are digging for gold.
Anyway, me I want his wig!!! I'm sure its Peruvian.

RIP Kim Jong IL
This hasn’t been a good year for sit-tight leaders (sadhappyface) But while I was expecting dancing in the streets .. like what happened when Abacha died, I saw a nation in deep mourning for Kim Jong.
Emotions so intensely expressed that it had me rotflol. Believe me I was almost ready to bet with a friend that these were professional mourners hired to make     the guy look good. You see I had bought into the Western media’s propaganda which told me the deceased was a tyrant and reviled by his people who were in bondage. Maybe he was but his people ‘adored’ him in spite of his excesses it seems or like someone commented “I think the people are genuinely in mourning. He is their religion”.
I think the face of the guy with a red scarf was photo-shopped
I think my second shocker was seeing such intense emotion on East Asian faces. Korea and neighbours China and Japan are known to have deadpan expressions. So it was just strange to see men and women dancing and throwing themselves on the ground ‘African stylee’. #StereotypeFail.
As for the successor to the North Korean throne, Jong-un, can he please lay off the doughnuts plss.

A group of unemployed local musicians in South Africa have joined forces to release a Christmas single, entitled ‘Yes we do,’ in response to the Bob Geldof inspired Band Aid song, ‘Do they know it’s Christmas?’ Speaking at the launch of their song, the composer and singer Boomtown Gundane praised Geldof’s relentless quest for an answer and said they hoped their collaboration would free the Irishman and his friends to start looking for solutions to new and more important questions.

“Like, Do they know about climate change in America? Or did Kim Jong-il have time to write down the abort codes for the nukes before he died? (very important question I must say lol).
He said despite the poverty and hunger that had inspired Geldof and his friends to create the song back in 1984, Africans had developed their own ways to remember Christmas.

‘Just because we don’t have Boney M or Christmas advertising in September doesn’t mean we are oblivious to it,’ said Gundane. Proceeds will go towards teaching discipline, literacy and contraception at British schools. Touche Gundane!! LOL.

  1. Touche indeed, lol... I heard that full lyrics of that song for the first time while in the UK and it was for a children's charity xmas event I was helping organize. I was like huh? Anyway, I guess Geldorf and co meant well.

    I heard on the radio that after the father of Kim Jong died in 94, there was witch hunting of those who didn't publicly cry so now the citizens know better. Of course, this may be more of the propaganda?

    BTW, who wrote that love letter? You better marry him o, LWKMD!

  9. Heavens to Betsy, Ginger, you are covering a lot of stuff. Now are you going to marry that big guy or not?

  10. Just so you know, in that country YOU'D BETTER be mourning when cameras are on you. It's policy and noth*ing to do with how the man was 'loved'. Yes some tears were real but I'll wager most were not.
    (My boy included the asterisk. It stays).

  16. I read the entire post. So sad to read about the suicide. Yeah, that must have been some horrible feelings to have taken her own life, but I would never presume to judge another. As for the "mourners," I couldn't take my eyes off of buddy with the red scarf. He can't even be a real person, can he?
    And congratulations on your engagement (teehee!)I think the same guy proposed to me last month. I think his English has gotten a bit better :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. May Kat's soul rest in peace...that is so depression with a Double capital D.

    I think the western media is responsible for most of the revolutions of the year. They paint the Leader as the devil's incarnate and they we all go gaga point fingers.

    Abeg, when is the wedding and biko don't let the aso-ebi be too expensive oh...lol.

    Happy New Year in advance

  24. Ginger Bigman! You're too much jare. I'm getting to your blog later than usual I see. I guess congratulations are in order. Lol. Sad about the Kat story. May we never experience such darkness by His grace. As for the mourners, my thoughts are that them no born them well make them no mourn. Anybody caught snoozing and not mourning will probably be publicly flogged before being beheaded. Because for someone wey no be your papa, this na over sabi.
