When I was younger, I used to go the movies with friends at 10pm, go for house parties, and even have sleepovers that involved pillow fights.But they were in my imaginations and don’t let me lie, it was wonderful.
These things only took place in my imaginations because I grew up in a Nigerian home.And my parents had other plans for me.
Even though in reality, I wasn’t able to participate in any of the things I mentioned above, I must say my parents still allowed me have fun in some really cool places.At least according to their standards.
If you’re feeling anything I’ve been saying, then this is for you. Let’s analyse the theory behind some places our parents allowed us hangout freely.Don’t worry, we’d pass through this together.
One of our parent’s favourite places to take us to was the church or mosque. Because what could be more fun that being in the temple of God 24/7?Nothing mum, absolutely nothing beats that. You’re the best!
After church, if you decide to have a little more fun, Bible study is the place for you. You’d wonder how something that has the word ‘study’ in it can be fun, right?See, once you start biting your fingers and cutting paper, imagining roller coasters and winking at strangers, It turns to Disneyland at Bible study.
It get’s a bit bearable when you’re on holidays, because you have the option of going to your cousins house. Not just any cousin though.You know that cousin that clearly has two heads? Aways carrying book, watches the news, and even loves doing house chores. Yes that cousin. That’s where you can go.
If you refuse to go to your cousins house, there’s always the option of hanging out with your mum, which is a lot of fun, especially when it’s at the market.
“We won’t even be long, I just want to buy garri” *3 hours later* you’re carrying rice, beans, pepper, meat, fish, chicken, salt, yam, etc. Then.. “ha I forgot to buy garri o”
