THAT BANAL WORD, "LOVE"

So three weeks ago, I'm with two of my friends and one of
      them asks, "what is love to you?" I paused for few seconds
      before giving my answer (chill, I'll mention it later). Thing
      is, in those few seconds, the word, "love" flashed in my mind
      as experiences I had been through_ people I know (or knew)
      had been through also and not as a term as I had been asked.
      I had paused to compose those experiences in my own words...

   
       The thing about a banal  word is that alongside,
      it gets out of line. Ironically,the word, "irony" is
      also both banal and out of line(as in the case of, "it's an
      irony how blacks can keep locks) for Christs' sake our
      natural hair  should be locks!
   
        Truth is I have made several attempts to complete this
      Post and at those times, I encountered a certain inbalance
      with my phone memory.
   
            Yeah, I replied my friends' question
      with, "the younger me believed love was simply a romance
      novel tale_ the hero and heroine fight off the attrction at
      first, then they fall in love, they encounter the "lovers'
      fight" and finally they realize they cannot do without each
      other... Presently," I continued, "I do not believe the
      hey-I'm-so-into-you-my-heart-skips-two-beats-per-second Love
      exists. I do however believe love can be found after awhile..
   
      Okay, let's clear the air before I explain my reply that day.
      Any conservative reading this and already concluding that I'm
      probably a bored ass individual

I’ve always known true love exists; always and convincingly known. 

Ado Awaye: The quiet town and mountains sitting pretty

If you’re thinking of the next place to tour in Nigeria, get in here, you might just be in luck.

The town of Ado Awaye is fascinating for not only its tourist sites but also its historical mythologies.

This review will help enlighten and prepare you for the trip to Ado Awaye with Lagos as the take-off location. This means your interpretation of logistics for this trip should be measured based on your current location.





Preparation When preparing to tour the town of Ado Awaye, these are a few things to take note of:

1. What to take
Because you’re touring, it is important to travel as light as possible. This means while packing, you should go for only essentials. Try assessing each item you intend to pack with these two questions: ‘Do I really need this?’ and, ‘Do I have another item serving the same purpose this said item offers?’.
Usually, 80 percent of the time, if you find yourself pondering over the above-italicized questions, the item in question will usually not be important.

The City That You Were

i was Jos
and
he was Lagos. i was the quiet streets of Rock Haven:
the houses separated by the heavy silence
of unanswered 'hellos' from neighbours.
the absolute conservation of shades the trees
cast here- was totally me. he. he was the busy streets of Obalende:
the unrepentant conductors yelling,
'Yaba! CMS! Yaba! Yaba!
the circular circulation of human sweat waving
through the air like Oxygen.
neglecting the weaknesses of island Ajebutters and JJC pedestrians. at night i was the city of J-Town after 8pm.
quiet. eerily so.
soldiers securing fences of the selected few.
smoking stuff and drinking liquor,
with AK-forty-somethings to bring down any rebel who dared to equal. he was the busy streets of Lasgidi at night:
the traffic, in French translated to, "la circulation"
right up from Admitalty Way through the Toll gates.
Cars honking, drivers cursing, almost excitedly at each other.
LASTMA officials obeying the call to rip-off 'rich' drivers. …
