Aaarrggh!! Parakeet tagged me!

I run away from taggings!!
But Parakeet had to hold my butt down by awarding me this honest scrap thing and tagging me to say 10 Honest things about myself.

Okay, here goes.

1. Started writing and drawing in primary school. Wrote a lot of storybooks and illustrated them, bound them with staplers or needle and thread, and had them thrown in the trash when my Mum got tired of me litering the house with them. 

2. I’m addicted to plantain. I’m also addicted to garri and anything that goes well with it!

3. Learnt how to drive by stealing my Dad’s car whenever he wasn’t around. I had two reasons for wanting to learn how to keep up with the joneses (guys who gained respect in high school for being able to cruise a car) and to get with chicks. 

4. Got excessively drunk for the first time in my life on palm wine and harassed a female teacher during my youth service. 

5. Almost died on 3 occassions in my life – in high school, on campus and during youth service. Could it be that my surname is a prophecy that’s been saving my life?

6. Faked commitment to some of my Ex-es just to have a relationship. 

7. My wife is eight months pregnant and I’m scared shitless and excited at the same time. How does it feel like to be a ‘Popsie’? Please share abeg.

8. Used to suck my finger up till my JSS in high school.

9. I have serious beef for blogs that write about nothing but sex. Isn’t it an overrated issue? 

10. I used to have a very serious crush on a particular blogger on blogsville. Want to know who she is? lol...I leave that for you to guess!

I guess these are honest enough?
So therefore, I tag the following people:


Ugandan Girl

Favoured Girl

Naughty Eyes




Here are the instructions for the above tagged folks!

1.You must brag about the award
2.You must include the name of the blogger who bestowed the award on you and link back to the blogger
3.You must choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. 4.Show their names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. 
5.List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

I hope I've done all I'm supposed to do.

Vera Ezimora said...

Ahhhh! Come on, tell us who the blogger you had a crush on is. We wanna know abeg....

Your wife is preggers?? Awwww! Congrats!! You're gonna be a daddy pretty, pretty soon! You go!

I learnt to drive the same way - only it was my mother's car. I did it because I was desperate. I wanted to learn and no1 was taking me seriously.

#6 na wa oh, but I can't judge.

Congrats on your pregnancy. It is normal to be nervous, trust me. But just relax. No need to worry, save that for when your child comes because you will worry about even the littlest things like is his/her poop soft enough? Should it be that color? Did I burp the baby enough? And then imagine all the other more important things to worry about.

Relax, enjoy the rest of the time you guys have as a couple sans kids, though. =)

Tell your wife I am rooting for her. I'm rooting for you too, of course. You guys will be great parents!

Aww congratulations on being an almost-daddy! How could you leave us hanging and not say the blogger you used to have a crush on?! Spill.
