Hi guys! (covers face) I’ve missed this space and I’ve missed you too!
Anyway today i’d be telling a story of a scar on my body and how a lot of people’s favorite snack almost got me killed…or maybe i almost let it.
i was about 8 years old and growing up my mum forbade myself and my siblings from taking sweets, sugar and anything thing that’s too sweet. But the 90’s children are very smart (lol) i still bought sweets and she didn’t find out.
One particular day during the holiday, my mum came back from work and as usual i went to greet her, ‘welcome’ (this is a Nigerian tradition, it shows respect).
she gave me a little bag to carry and we went into the kitchen. I was about to go into my room when she called me back, by this time my younger brother had also entered the kitchen.
Mama handed us a package and lo and behold she went against her no sugar rule and bought us ice cream…oh the joy! It wasn’t fruit or veggies. I sat right there and started to devour it.
As i was taking the ice cream, i saw my mum go upstairs to her room carrying another package , i got curious and thought it was ice cream. Hmmm…brethren this was the beginning of the end.
I followed her into the room and saw that she kept the package at the top section of her wardrobe. When she left the room, i started to climb the wardrobe. As i was climbing i did not notice that one of her silk clothing had shifted to the edge just right where i’d put my leg to climb to the third section.
And then…i stepped on the silk cloth on the second layer and i slipped! My chin hit the edge of the second layer and blood like I’ve never seen gushed out. i didn’t feel any pain at that moment.
Placing my hand on my chin to supposedly try to contain the blood. I went straight to the kitchen and called my mum. Immediately she saw me,she screamed! ‘Called my grandmother who refused to look at my blood.
My mum claimed to have been able to see the root of my teeth from under the chin, lol.
long story short, i was taken to the hospital kept under anesthetic and had a mini surgery (stitching).
The scar is still there right under my chin, a thin line to remind me never to be greedy, lol.
so that’s my story guys how ice cream almost got me killed…LOL. My family still makes jokes about it…
MORAL LESSON: less sugar is always good, be satisfied with what you’ve been given.
