Little P was a shy girl in her early days. No that she didn’t play the games little girls played. She enjoyed playing “dodging”. The fun game in which she dodged from balls shot at her by friends could keep her escaping from house chores. Hopscotch was another favourite game. She and her aunt who was just a year older than her drew the hopscotch playing area over and over until the mark remained infront of her Grandma’s house. Guuurrrl, in those days we could play oh. But the kids of nowadays…SMH

They do not do “dodging”, “sizo” and “tabala” like we used to. They do not even know how to make our sweet “play play” in which one person will be “Mami”, the other, “Papa” and some “Pikin them”. Then Mami will make a concoction of ground grass with saliva and serve pikin them to “eat”. I know… yuck!

If you grew up in Cameroon, you will be nostalgic right now. If you didn’t, just go with the flow.

But today things have changed oh. Girls now watch Barbie instead of rolling their skirts to tuck into their panties and have some real outdoor playing fun.

Boys now play video games…they are no longer fighting imaginary wars in unfinished buildings.

We are in the technology age…. and BTW, little P will be me!

Our play is now mostly on the computer where we facebook, we skype, we tweet and we blog!

  3. I am usually fascinated with early posts from the begining of a blog. It's interesting to see how the writers and the blog have changed from the begining. If you go to some of Linda Ikeji and Sdk early posts you will be surprised at how much their blog has evolved.
