6 Quirky Things I’ve Been Thinking About Lately

Happy Sunday lovely people. How y’all doing? There’s this funny thing I do to myself. I just come up with some off-point, weird, sometimes funny thoughts that make me giggle. Sometimes my hubby thinks I’m wacko when I say these thoughts out. I said I might do a series on these thoughts ‘cos dem plenty but I’d see the reception it gets from this first post to determine whether I should do the series.

  1. I just found out CBeebies is a sister company to BBC. So I think they just flipped the sound backwards and got a name. So is it that it’s the same for CNN and Cartoon Network? They just kicked out one ‘N’? Well, it turns out I wasn’t far from being right. The Founder of Cartoon Network happens to be the same person who created CNN. No other person than Ted Turner. I heard that when he brought up the idea of news being aired 24 hours, and subsequently cartoon aired  24 hours, people thought that was ridiculous. He defied the norm and now most people can’t do without these channels. Lesson: Shut the naysayers and do what you want.
  2. Whenever I see creeping and crawling insects, I cringe and have goosebumps. Lately I’ve been trying to overcome my fear for them. How? I just say “If they can eat this in China, then it’s not so terrible”.
  3. When you carry a baby to your shoulder level, the height from your shoulders to the floor is alot through the baby’s eyes. How come they are not scared of such height?
  4. Growing up, how come anytime you ask your parents for pocket money, they would complain bitterly that they don’t have. Few minutes later they are giving you money with extra. So there was money all along? So why go through all that pain to complain?
  5. For those phone addicts. What if you use your phone in the toilet and it mistakenly falls into poop? (TMI: It enters into the crevices of the phone like speakers, charging port etc). Will you use it to make calls and be talking shit talk? *Pun intended*
  6. What if Jesus comes now, will you make heaven?

Y’all better answer. I’m feeling so chirpy today so I just want to lounge-talk with my readers. Also, please find time and read some older posts of mine, even when you are in the “other room”. LOL. You could learn a thing or two. Do well to give us a ‘thumbs up’ on our Facebook page and follow me on Instagram. Y’all have a pleasant evening and Godspeed to you as you start this new week.

P.S: If you are paying close attention, you’d notice my frequency of posts reduced these past two weeks. My brethren and sistren, my internet has caught Ogbanje bug all the way from my village. Fixing it to serve y’all berra!

    Bubu, I can deal with insects but other kinds of creatures make me embarrass myself. I cried the other day because a frog was jumping all around me. I was screaming and in panic mode. I was too ashamed to tell my daughter the whole story when she asked me. Let me not even get started on dogs. I need deliverance.
    Have a great week, fine lady!

      Lady P,

      The thought of you crying and the frog jumping cracked me up, sorry dear. Lol

      Ah! As for Dogs, I will cry hot tears if a dog jumped all around me.

    Oh dear. I feel you. Just use my concept cos they eat frogs too in China. Dogs, no matter how cute still scares the hell out of me. I could pretend to be brave with puppies but don’t get those grown ones around me. Same for cats…and birds…and rabbits…and…Dear Lord, I am a horrrrible person.Lol. I’m clearly an animalphobe.

    Interesting lounge talk 🙂

    Lol @ “other room” You naughty girl! Ah, the many quips that #TheOtherRoom has inspired are hilarious, to say the least.

    The only insects that really bother me are houseflies and cockroaches.

    Ewww… Major shit talk. I always take my phone into the toilet, but I’m super careful.

    Hmmm… Master Jesus….. Hmmm… *Off to read my bible*

    Lol @ shit talk.
    I really like your first point and it’s got me thinking about a lot of seemingly “impossible ” things….

    My dear, when I hear such stories of people redefining the norm when others discourage them, I just get encouraged that nothing, absolutely nothing is impossible.
