15 Unknowns

Is it just me, or do you also feel clueless about a gazillion and one things regardless of the centuries you’ve been on earth? I feel like what I don’t know is far monstrous than what I do know and trust me, this is a huge understatement. That been said, I’ll share with you a few.

1. I DON’T KNOW WHEN I STOPPED KNOWING SO MUCH

Because as at when I was 7, I could have literally educated you on anything whilst fiddling with my hair and sucking my index finger (and I’m not kidding).

2. I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL EVER GROW TALLER

So there’s this friend of mine that told me, matter-of-factly, that I would increase in height (one inch or so) if I got pregnant and gave birth before 25 years. I know, right? Very concerned fellow. Thanks for the brain-wash hommie.

3. I DON’T KNOW WHY MEN CHEAT ON THE WOMAN THEY CLAIM TO LOVE

Let’s start from the very beginning, a very good place to start… when you read you begin with A,B,C, when you sing you begin with do, re, mi.. when you cheat I sincerely think it begins with indiscipline. What happened to the much proclaimed love, the self-pride, the values we once had?! Dead? Gone? I’m guessing it was never there. Now men cheating on their spouses seems so normal and inevitable. This makes me terribly, unreasonably sad (refer to the 4th picture).

4. I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL BE THIS HIGHLY MATURED WOMAN

It could be pretty hard embracing maturity when you’re the last child.. But Good-news!!! – my adorable little nephew finally dethroned me about four years ago.

The end. Hello maturity!

5. I DON’T KNOW WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST UNFLINCHINGLY CALLOUS

Ehn-ehn, my middle name is not Angelica or Saint Obi or anything, but the wickedness and cruelty displayed daily by humans to fellow humans beats my imagination!

6. I DON’T KNOW IF I’M AS GOOD A DAUGHTER TO MY MUM AS I’LL WANT MY DAUGHTER TO BE TO ME

(#7: I don’t know if I’ll jinx this and then give birth to a complete ME-opposite who will be so annoyingly frustrating causing me to spank the living daylight out of her and with those same hands nurture and hold her tight cause jinx or no jinx, she’s going to be a terrific child.)

8. I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL EVER STOP HAVING MOOD SWINGS

So you think you have mood swings? You probably haven’t met me. My mood swings are so disregarding, a friend of mine thinks I’m Bi-polar.

9. I DON’T KNOW IF 30 IS THE NEW 20

22 sure isn’t the new 12, so I’m deeply suspicious.

10. I DON’T KNOW WHO MY BIOLOGICAL GRANDMOTHER IS

  • Well, I know her name, seen her picture.

Sometimes I wonder if I look like her or if she’s to credit for my accurately measured height because heaven knows it didn’t come from Mother and Father Dearest.

11. I DON’T KNOW MUCH HISTORY

I don’t know the name of the guy that liberated Sierra-Leone neither do I know the dates of all the past Nigerian coups or all those other endless historical facts. And I never ever ever saw myself praying for the prosperity of a non-living thing.. but this one here earned it.

“Google, God bless you. You’re a life saver. Your company will not burn down. Front, front, front you will be going (Iwaju iwaju le o ma lo)

12. I DON’T KNOW IF I HAVE ONE BIG GRAND ENORMOUS MADASS ADVENTURE LEFT

I’m not talking marriage, or childbirth, not those kind of adventures. I’m talking take-a-year-off, blow-your-savings, travel-the-world, be-the-Queen-of-the-Bahamas kind of adventure. Yes? No? Maybe so? Yes!

13. I DON’T KNOW WHY MY PALMS ARE SO WHITE ALL THE TIME

They are meant to be reddish cause I suppose blood runs through me. My palms are just always so whi…

Wait! Maybe I’m not human.. Angels don’t do the whole blood-in-body thing, right? Are you thinking what I’m thinking???       Maybe I’m an angel!! I just knew there had to be something different about me.

14. I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DON’T KNOW

Look at this life, I still don’t know where its going. So many questions still left unanswered. So much I’ve never broken through. I don’t know much. But I know I love you. And that may be all I need to know.

Haha.. just kidding.. Those are the lyrics to a Lionel Richie song. It’s my jam, it’s fantastic. Go listen.

15. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU DON’T KNOW TOO

Its okay not to know everything. Its okay not to have all the answers. It makes life more intriguing. So in that spirit, let’s hear it from you. Share one thing you sincerely don’t know.

        Normally, I would bite the bait, and thrash this argument definitively; but this is neither the right place nor time to do so. And on that note, I shall rest my case. If the case be stirred up as such at a later date, at a better place… (: I promise you, and everyone who is our audience, a very interesting conversation.

    I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DONT KNOW ..but I don’t know why bosses tends to be bossy and snitchy. Maybe its just my boss or probably because she is a Miss. I really wish people can be like me. Take up responsibilities, relate with people with pure humility and above be willing to go extra mile to make someone happy.

      And I can totally relate to your earlier comment o Mercy. However, I think its just who she is in particular… because some female bosses could be pretty amazing!! Yeah I know we women can like to have issues when we take up the mantle of leadership but I can testify to the fact that I work with one of the most awesome female bosses alive. (Shout-out to Ebere if she’s reading this). So hunnay, just suck-up whatever she throws your way and determine to be the complete opposite of her when you become that boss I know you’ll be soonest 🙂 .

    I don’t know so many things. I don’t know if I will ever be able to produce a daughter I’ll treasure like I treasure my son. I don’t know if I’ll live to be a grandma. I don’t know if I’ll ever have answers to some troubling questions. But I do know one thing, I will always remain grateful for the day it was announced that a second baby girl was born into our home and I became a proud elder sister. Good work ‘Yeye. Proud of you too.

      2. Yea… I think I would really want to know that…. your friends even asking you “YOU DONT DRINK”? when they see a bottle of Malt in front of you is really small… that one might be understandable a little bit.. because if you reason that , you would actually know what they mean… “ALL THEY MEAN IS” DONT YOU DRINK ALCOHOL”
        But the most painful one is when your “PASTOR” sees you coming out of a “BAR”….. hmmmmmm just know you are the topic for the upcoming sunday service….”LOLZ”…. (that is if your church is the small congregation type when your pastor know every member “
