Did I mention that
I am now an Aunty, yes oh...my brother’s wife had a bouncing baby boy some
months back and this is the beginning of a new generation in my family. Papa
Sykik and Mama Sykik are first time grannies and their excitement can’t be
contained. The baby is so cute..... God forgive me, I wish babies don’t grow
up... the cuddly, chubby, sweet looking face...they look so innocent, I feel
like “sin” beside any baby.
Anytime I buy gifts
for anyone I make sure I buy something I love and won’t mind using....I have
often times “kolobied” gifts I bought for people because my longer throat won’t
let go of the item. I then go buy something else.....Sykik is a nut case. Who
does something like that? I plead guilty, some items are simply irresistible.
Who ever made it
compulsory that rice (in whatever form, jollof, fried or white rice) and
chicken are the official Christmas meal? I am so looking forward to eating
firewood jollof rice this Christmas; I think Christmas rice tastes
differently.Can anyone remember
visiting Father Christmas, going to amusement park, shopping for Christmas
cloth inside Lagos market? Kai, I don
old finish oh. Back in the days, we use to go from LTV8, NTA channel7, channel
10, channel5 e.t.c for Father Christmas. Wait for this, I was the cry baby of
the house.....Father Christmas scared the shit out of me...I would, scream,
scratch, claw and everything because I just didn’t want to be left alone with
the Father Christmas...if Mama Sykik say make I no enter the Father Christmas grotto,
na wahala be that, because I wanted
the gifts without having to see the scary Father Christmas....it was always a
battle, but someway somehow....I survived each year and came out with my
gifts....hahaaha.... I scare easily till date, forget all this my mouth.
was a season of gifts, Papa Sykik and Mama Sykik knows how to give gifts oh, my
brothers and I got lots of gifts each year. I couldn’t wait for Christmas to
come then, but I don’t know why my parents refuse to give gifts again now that I
am older and married...after all I am still their child nau....abi do people
outgrow Christmas gift and Christmas cloth ni?
Maybe I should sue them, for reneging on their parental duties. Abi, they think have handed over to
Hubby ni, I no gree, Hubby is husband, Papa and Mama Sykik are my parents...I will
start protesting from today.
2014 is gradually
wrapping up. It has been an eventful year and I can’t begin to count my
I have tried to
stay cool, kind, calm and good this year. I have played by the rules and even
stopped applying the “an eye for an eye” rule. I tried not to allow the
“evening go down on my anger” and also had a kind word for my mean colleagues.
Above all, I reduced my chocolate intake and now play #teamwater....... it was
a tough call, but I remained faithful to the cause. I also shopped less, so I
got to save more.
I know I will have
the best Christmas this year if you will be kind enough to reward me for being
a good girl. I am all grown up but I
still believe you exist; I am not like some people (side eyes to Toinlicious,
and Simply mee) who don’t believe you exist.Kindly prove to them that you do make dreams come true. I know you come
in through the chimney (we don’t have chimney in Nigeria sha)...... I will
leave the kitchen window open so you can still sneak in and drop my gift. It won’t be a bad idea if you came calling
with a gift bearing “Sykik, darling. You have
played fair, you have stayed true and though I saw you act like an asshole some
few times, you deserve a memorable Christmas this 2014”:)
