It´s God oh!
The one thing I’ve come to love and appreciate through the years of staying overseas, is the close bond I’ve developed with my mum. Over the years we´ve become so close that every 2 or 3 days we do catch up. She´d call me and ask about my health, classes and my friends but of course the real reason I know she was calling was to give me the juicy, dirty, vivid and much exaggerated story in a minute!
It´s always made me wonder why Nigerian parents always insist on telling you about events going on while you´re away but leave out the best details and insist that it was `God` who´d finally gotten justice. And when questioned all they ever say is “its God!“ I mean obviously its God, I’m not even going to try and dispute that argument (you never win) but details, woman, details! It´s only after much questioning they tell you, and with annoyance in their tone that the man, probably, wasn’t used to the weather temperature in Bolivia which caused the intestines in his stomach to erupt and how the lady actually went to a fertility clinic and after spending much trial and error and loads of money had been spent she got her babies! Now how hard was that?! Lol! I dislike been told that people misfortune or luck is by a Higher Power, I’d much rather be given details and speculation. Wouldn´t you agree?
Who else has ever been in the same situation as me? please share your story!
