MY Addiction

Tuesday, 1 January 2008


So? It’s the new years again right? Good. I know what you are all thinking. New year means new decisions, targets, goals and everything that follows along that line of strenuous-ness with fulfilling your dreams. Here is what am saying, I wish you all the best of whatever you wish for. Miracles and blessings darlings, and kisses too.

Well I have decided this year to start a series called ‘what would you do’? So you beautiful people can always have something new to read whenever you come round. Kind of like a skit in between my diary updates when nothing interesting is going on in my life, I will give you something to ponder upon. Orite?

Here’s the first one.

What would you do?

If you were sat down by your parents and informed that in true fact, your father is your grandfather as well. They both started this ludicrous liaison when your mother was eight, and instead of your mother to feel disgust and hate towards your father/grandfather like most normal people would do, she loved him, and would do every and anything to satisfy him including agree to marry him and have you,

Obviously now it's all clear to you why you have never seen your cousins, you don’t know of any blood tied aunties and uncles and both your maternal and paternal grandparents died before you were born.

It comes clear why mum has so much respect for dad and why he is way older to. She doesn’t argue with him, she does everything he says and he treats her just like he treats you.

When last two years you stumbled on mum talking to someone on the phone and she used the word ‘sister’, when you asked she told you it was a nun on the phone, one she used to know a long time ago. It felt strange because you were sure of what you heard, it couldn’t have been just a nun, it was well personal, she talked to the person on the receiving end as being the only sister she had and why nobody is acquiescent with the fact that she loves dad very dearly. You could have sworn your grandparents were not alive, so who was mum referring to? Well she managed to soothe the turbulence in your temperamental soul, so you forgot about it.

but now this is it, mum and dad sorry granddad, no, dad-granddad, oh granddad dad arrrh! whatever; are sitting staring at you waiting for you to speak.

Go on darling, what do you say? Speak.

Afrobabe said...

I would only ask why would they tell me this, and turn around and mess my head up. Seriously, I would.

I wouldn't look at my father/granddad the same. Ever again.

Mom would still be mom.

uhmmmmmmmm... can i have 2 shots of vodka and a well wrapped ganj? after that, call me Guinness Book of records and the Discovery Channel.
I have a story to tell... lol...

then, get me a paper and a pen, I have to psych test to run.

I'll be very amazed, plus I'll hope they haven't passed their mentality to me genetically... that won't be funny at allllllllllll.

Lightly, you too, are a woman after my own heart. Am LOVING your playlist. Dwele and Goapele are slept on by many but are awesome! I like Dwele's Weekend Love, Goapele's First Love and India's Brown Skin

Okay okay, now on to the post at hand. I think I would look at them both in disgust, try to find out more about my family, remain SANE, and start my own life as an adult.

happy new year sweets!!!...eventhough there is no maxwell, i love, love, love your playlist!!!...

...regarding the post and what i'd do...after i blinked for a long time...i am one of those people that needs time to gather my thoughts after hearing shocking shit... is strange...humans are complex...i would ask them if they would pay for my psychological treatments...if they agreed, i'd refrain from speaking to them until after months of treatment...if they disagreed, i'd definitely have no words...maybe letters when i needed money...
