Helloooooo, everybody! It’s been a minute, I know. Recently, I’ve been so caught up in Social media, Independence day celebrations and viral videos, so much I forgot I am also a content creator. Hehehehe. Sorry, for keeping you guys waiting. This is my first post in October, so being an ardent lover of my Contiri, I want to say Happy Independence day to all Nigerians. I wrote a long post on it but it became all preachy and Oprah-Winfreyish so I left it.
I thrive very well when I’m surrounded with jokes and laughter and they come easily in my household. After a 2 week-hiatus, I thought I should kick off with a lighthearted post, some jokes we’ve shared randomly. These are some hilarious Life Lessons.
1. When you learn a new word and you over use it until you misuse it. E.g Camaraderie.
Meaning: A spirit of friendly good fellowship.
Used in a sentence: “They have a good camaraderie now after being enemies for years”. // “It was a camaraderie of flavours”. All is well until you say, “I want to camaraderie You!” And the kind of people who would confidently say this are those with a phoney American-British accent because they can form.
Moral of the story: Don’t just know meanings of words, learn how and when to use them.
2. The different stages when you are learning how to drive: When you are a newbie in the driving industry, you are gripped with fear anytime you hold that steering wheel. So much that a big road looks like this……and When a small car is coming on the other lane, it looks like this. Then when you become an expert and you see other learners trying to get it right on the road, you give them this look.
3. When you always pretend you know the ropes of fine cuisine but you pay heavily for your folly. The waiter asks your preference, ” Mineral water, Tap water or Sparkling water?” You confidently Say, “Sparkling water”…because you think Sparkling means purest and cleanest. Then they bring a water, finely bottled like Champagne. It’s opened and you finally understand that Sparkling water is water that’s got that bursty bubbly character of that of champagne, but just without a taste….and that comes with a higher price tag. Oga, pay ya moni!
Moral of the story: Don’t be too proud to ask what you really don’t know.
4. (This never gets old). You dress to kill and not even a puppy you know, sees you and says hi. The day you dress down, looking all flushed out and pale, that’s the day you get a freaking reunion of friends bumping into you left, right, centre. I jump and pass!Moral of the story: Always look good everyday. You never know who you would bump into.
And now, to my lovely readers, I want to say a big thank you for……*drum rolls***
200K Page Views!!!!
Woohoo! Adonbelivit! You know I’ve never been a fan of the ‘numbers’ ‘cos I felt it would be a big distraction for me but in the blogosphere it’s good to acknowledge little strides like this. I remember seeing metric figures like this and wondered how it will ever happen. Why I’m particularly excited about this is because this is organically grown. What do I mean? We achieved this number by you just coming to read or just visiting. It wasn’t through any promoted posts. After I publish each article, I just herald it on Bubu’s Boulevard Facebook Page and if I remember, I do same on Instagram. (By the way, aren’t you following me on Instagram yet?You are really missing). So those are my two platforms and neither of these platforms had carried promoted posts. Ofcourse, I’d be promoting my posts more enthusiastically because that’s the way to go but I’m really excited that this happened in a year and 4 months of the blog without promotions. So imagine the page views we would have If we boost our reach on social media. Please tell your friends and even your enemies about this blog. It’s a feel-good blog. Mostly satires(because I never take myself too seriously). You wanna laugh out loud, unwind from the hustle, get informed, learn and pay nothing for it? Here’s the place. Do you also want to create an awareness of your product or service for a good deal? Here’s the place. For more inquiries, please send a mail to email@example.com.
A big thank you for reading and visiting. God bless you so much. As usual, I’d have done a give away like I did the last time but since I got to the Caribbean, I’m still figuring out how to liaise with Nigeria in giving out gifts since most of my readers are Nigerians. I pray I make a headway. God bless you guys so much. Have a beautiful week.
Psssst! Remember, your comments here are golden!
