I know I should be in bed right now but let me be the first to put a word in! You never cease to amaze person sef. The fact that you just had to put a comical twist to it really tells one that's the way you are. Anyway as for the breasts and periods, mehn let's just be praying that we make heaven so that we can have a talk with Oga Jesus. Hehn hehn, please o which one be periwinkle again? I thought that was a color?

Ok. This is why I am termed a fake igbo boy. Reading this, it finally dawned that ADA-ure is an igbo name. How redundant. Forgive me, it's just that I am an ajebo omo Eko from the corner of Cameron & Gerrard ;) Your responses were excellent. And you say I'm funny. You're a riot! We should try and hook up December. Put faces to the madness. Actually, should I be putting that in here? Such things are meant to be under G, ba ;) Ha ha! HOLLA!

@Shewun....Yup you are right, that's just the way I am. My life has to be entertaining for me. Periwinkle is both a color and a creature. There's a slimmy worm like thing that lives in water that is so freakingly delicious and it is bluish in color hence we have the color Periwinkle.

@Nneka... Lol.. don't worry Fanta on me when we jam

@Don Chi....Chi boy yes oh you are real ajebota, me I am just half. By the way is that how people do introduction in your village...'try and hook up'... Bros abeg go carry Keg bring my papa. Lol... no probs on your request...Lagos is small I am sure we'll jam somewhere again ;)
