A little Nigerian take on love

There are some really great Nigerian writers and speakers. One I have found recently is Elnathan John who writes over on that “other” platform on the interwebz that doesn’t have a re-blog button to automatically share. This is my attempt at a manual approximation. HOW TO SHOW NIGERIAN LOVE To quote D’Banj, “love is a beautiful […]

18 Parenting Experiences

Collated over time.

My version of M*A*S*H

Before you read this, please consider when I was young my sole desire in life was to be a doctor. For family reasons, that didn’t work out, but the medical process doesn’t freak me out and I do like to look on the lighter side where at all possible – it helps retain sanity! Early in […]

The CPU is fine, the peripherals not so much

Up until we are about forty, many of us are invincible. We drink, smoke, work, run, jump, eat and have sex with impunity. Then we hit the big 4-0. We might notice the odd stiff joint, or women may start having plumbing issues. We start getting grey hair perhaps, or the odd line or two on […]

Behaviour Contract

As a parent, we have an implicit contract to house, feed, dress and educate our offspring. Sadly, offspring do not seem to be born with any implicit contract. So I wrote tailored ones! Here is a sample! Parents may feel free to adapt to their own situation!  Behaviour Contract I, [name redacted], of XYZ Street, Abc […]

Are YOU a Mr Idiot Driver

As I am wont to do at the end of the work day, I departed the office . I then stopped to spend an exorbitant $101 on diesel. I continued my homeward journey along Victoria Parade and St, heading to Dynon Road and the freeway. Approaching the set of lights at an intersection around Peel […]

Captain, Captain, I don’t know where we are

“Captain, please come to the bridge. I’m not sure where the border is.” “WTF? What are you talking about?” “Captain, I am serious. We’ve had a Ephemeris error. Or a Propagation delay error. Or maybe there are bubbles in the compass. I’m not sure!” “Are you sure the helmsman didn’t just stay on autopilot too long? You […]

How not to have a perfect day

It is getting close to the end of the year and Team Oyeniyi, especially this member of the team, is a little on the tired side. So a month ago I scoured through my calendar to find a few days I could take off on annual leave. I found the three days starting today! Yay! […]

The glamour of being a one woman band

To the traditional publishers who turned me down, may I just say I hate you. I am sure there is something to be said for you guys handling all the damn paperwork/packaging/postage! This self-publishing gig is damn hard work, you know. You, dear reader, may remember I had a little glitch with generating my invoices […]

My accounting epic fail

I am an accountant. Many years spent going to night school after work two days a week. Worked damn hard to get that piece of paper! Having blithely offered paperbacks to people, I needed to send buyers invoices, didn’t I? So they can pay me – always a good idea, getting paid! :lol: I had […]
