Plus other ways to make your home feel like yours again after a breakup.

Hey {$name}. I feel like it’s been raining for the past 84 years. Yes, I know it’s the rainy season, but I think Noah’s ark is hidden at the back of someone’s backyard, and I don’t have the gist.

Please, let me know if anyone says anything about rain destroying the world in your hood. For research purposes, of course.

WHAT SHE SAID

The Inside Gist: I Wish I Did More for Myself

[Just found out this was Tega’s first “What She Said” story, and as someone who never runs away from a good throwback, I’m bringing back the Inside Gist from that day. Enjoy!]

Hey Tega! What made you want to interview a woman in her 50s?

If you listen close enough, older people always have a story someone needs to hear. This was a random evening sitting with my mum’s friend when she got into those “When I was your age…” chats.


When did you decide you cared about her story?

I realised I was literally about to relive a semblance of her life from 1992. I was packing up to leave my home in Abuja for Lagos, and was in the “I’m going to make it big” mood as well.


What would you say is the most interesting thing about her?

Her experience as “Small Pepper” made me laugh a lot. Like, how do you have the guts to steal an elderly man’s palm wine kegs at 13?
