Friends, before I continue bombarding you with more weirdness in 2017, let’s take a look at the top ten funny blog posts in 2016. Grab a cuppa and dive in.
“After all the YouTube videos and Mary Kay practicals, I attended a traditional wedding on Saturday looking like Juju Calabar’s assistant.”
The makeup I talk about in this post was purely from hell. Read the full post HERE.
“He further said his wife drove a Prado- a woman who looked like she had been starved for days. And no, this is not a brilliant use of literary phrases. She seriously looked emaciated. I wondered how she sat in that chair comfortable with all the lies just like I often wonder how wives of lying pastors feel.”
Imagine my shock when a supposed bishop let untruths slide with ease from his mouth on the pulpit! Read the full story HERE.
“My mouthed grandmother who was visiting us then asked,
“So when wona wookup yi for die, wona go keep yi for wuside?”
(Where will you keep him after raising him up from the dead?”
Oh my! This is probably one of the most ambitious things I ever did. I laugh today when I think of this story but it wasn’t funny at all then, facing a corpse in a cold mortuary with anointing oil and borrowed faith. Read all of the story HERE.
“There is something girl number 2 sadly bears in common with the oyibos; the inability to follow rhythm. She shook uncontrollably like a rat that had dropped into a pot of hot red oil. I looked at her in disappointment but she smiled back at me in amazement. She was probably singing a different song in her head and dancing as her moves failed to marry the music.”
Haha this was quite an experience! Full story HERE.
Update: I wrote this in 2015 actually and mistakenly added it to the list. Memory issues… I’ll pray about it.
“Bride and Groom Outfits
-Okrika wedding dress from Marche Nkululou- 5000frs OR ask a friend or family member who had a wedding before to lend you their dress. Why spend a fortune on an outfit you will only wear for a few hours?
-Super cent coat sewed by Pa Joe in the quartier. Material and workmanship- 20,000frs
-Pointini shoes from hawkers in Commercial Avenue- 5,000frs”
Hahaha planning a thrifty wedding just got easier. Read it all HERE.
“I kept following her misguiding rule to just push. With the constant pushing, something came out but not the baby! It is the thing that you go to release in a closed room when no one is watching. It came out, right there, on the hospital bed, thankfully in a hospital bowl. Madam midwife quickly put it away. I was too engulfed in pain to be embarrassed. After all, I had heard many women release that thing on their delivery bed too so I wasn’t the pioneer of such releases.”
Motherhood- it is the thing that turns your life upside down right from day 1. Read how my motherhood journey began HERE.
Note: Wrote this in 2015, republished in 2016.
“1. Considered getting rid of the kids for a loooooong time.
Sometimes I just wish I could send my kids on a month-long vacation somewhere.
2. Spoken continuously like a mad person.
You know the way mad people speak sometimes. The speech is fast-forwarded and almost has no meaning. Yeah, that.
3. Seen your kids as deliberate enemies.
Some days, it just feels like the girls are doing every and anything to switch on my anger button. Dem send wona for ma back? Go and tell them you haff not seen me!”
That’s eh, motherhood comes with a fair dose of craziness. Read the full post HERE.
“My backyard is nothing to write to Ntamassen about. I do not have a killer flat tummy. My belly is something far, far away from flat. Thank God for big blouses, which I use to cover the multitude of sins. Ha.”

“As I got to the front of the house, I found the door open. I shouted with a shaky voice,
“Hello, anybody here?”
