I Laughed At My Joke

‘The devil is a liar, but then we’re also too believing.’ I remember writing my New Year article for 2016 and thinking I had such a rough 2015. 2016 probably just chuckled and nodded. Two weeks before this week, I would pick up my writing device after a long day and just jumble some words together. I confess that I did not enjoy writing any of my recent articles because

Cooking Lies and Jollof

My sweat pores overworked today, dear Lord! I was in so much trouble; it was almost hilarious. So, I had been lying to my dad about my grade in school because my dad is a very strict disciplinarian and I just grew up believing that in order to live a flogging-free life, I have to lie. After my first year in the university, I just knew I could not make

Don’t Blame Me

‘Psst!’ whispered distraction, ‘it’ll be great if you stopped blaming me for your lack of focus.’ I shut my textbook and replied, ‘Oh really? Who do I blame then?’ ‘Blame yourself for making me priority’ he snickered.   And then, jogged along dieting ‘Hey you! Been looking for you all around. Would you stop blaming me for your poor self-care?’ she said. I was dazed. ‘But it’s all because of you I starve

Deliver Us

Deliver us from the lies we tell ourselves; For they are good valiums but bring a splitting headache in the morning.  Deliver us from the lies others tell us;  For they stuff our hearts but empty our heads. Deliver us from the lies we tell others; For they sour our lips and poison our tongues.  Deliver us from leaders who do not know who they are; For they will lead

Run Far Away

Run far away From people who do not mean you well For they’ll take all your happiness  And flush it down the drain without thinking twice.  *** Run far away  From drugs and alcohol and sexual immorality  For they’ll take all your happiness  And give you emptiness with the illusion of pleasure. *** Run far away  From corruption and a lying tongue  For they’ll take both your happiness and that

Adebosayo Odunlami – Fairytales

Prompt: 8 March Fantasy The Tooth Fairy (or Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus…), a fun and harmless fiction, or a pointless justification for lying to children.   Adebosayo is my sister. Yes, my elder sister. And as I expected, she set the tone and pace for the interview. It was a very on-my-toes interview. I had to have an opinion, I had to ‘make it flow’, I had to think…

Erm… Wait, What?

The Diary of the Groom

 28.04.2015  Dear Ademi Diary,  Baby, I don’t know why you’re making me write to a diary when what I really just want to do is talk to you about this. But if you would rather read what I have to say, then I guess I’d be an Achebe for you. I know a lot of questions are running through your mind. And I know that you’re at war as to

Mystery Cookie

The topic for today is ‘Mystery Cookie’. I had such a hard time coming up with something ‘mysterious’. But I keyed into my enigma-ish part and came up with this. Even at that, I don’t think this is mysterious. But as usual.. Enjoy! Honestly, if someone had ever told me that I would work as a customer care rep., I would have literally put sand in their garri… or custard
