Bumight: Dear Santa, I present my case… (Y! Superblogger)
Note that I’m not trying to bribe you or anything, but my offer is dependent on there being a MacBook under the tree.
How are you? And how is the North pole? How is Rudolf? And the rest of the elves? I hope things are going on smoothly? If so, doxology.
I know this is usually a busy time for you, but from my calculations, you’ve made a list and you’re checking it twice. I just want to find out if I’m on the naughty list or the nice list. Not that I have any doubts which list I think I’m going to be on, but something happened last week.
On Thursday evening, I woke up wanting to eat. I put two wraps of Moi-moi on the cooker to warm up, then I put some Garri in a bowl. As I said I should add some water, I opened the fridge, and there was no water!
Let me tell you something about Moi-moi, Santa. You can NOT eat Moi-moi without Garri – Garri Ijebu to be specific. Check the rule book, it’s in there somewhere.
(Un)fortunately, on closer inspection of the fridge, was my roommate’s only bottle of water. I couldn’t believe my eyes!
I brought it out to inspect it, you know, make sure its water and not… never mind! Anyways, as I was inspecting the bottle, it sort of fell into my bowl of Garri. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)
What was I supposed to do Santa? I couldn’t be rude and refuse to drink the Garri.
I just want you to know Santa, that I did NOT steal his water. You trust me right?
That’s why I love you Santa! You’re my favorite mythical creature
Now that we’ve gotten that tiny bit of confusing evidence out of the way, I hope you’re bringing my MacBook Air.
PS: Have you tried Moi-moi elemi meje and Garri? I’m not trying to say anything about Mrs Claus cooking skills.
PPS: I could lay some out for you in place of the cookies and warm milk if you want!
