Unboxing surprise

Guess what i got in the mail today?



I don't think i had this for a long while even before i left Nigeria, so it's been over 13 yrs. We call it Amuge and i know the english name for it is Velvet Tamarind, my friend calls it licki-licki. I'm curious to see what other people call this.

You know what i miss.....soursop. That fruit was delicious. I think they might have it here though.

I had a discussion with my friend about my previous post and how i came across and it was hilarious. I'm going to set the record straight cos i have been asked by a couple of people (based on my stance). The first time was funny cos it was from a blogger and it just made my day and i had a good laugh over it. The second time, not so much cos it was a supposedly close friend and he was really rude and crass about it. The friendship ended that day. I don't tolerate such ill manners and crassness.

No, I am not gay or bisexual neither am i bicurious or bi anything. People are people and i have bigger issues in life than to worry about shit like that. The last time i checked, no one died and made me God. So there you have it. If i was even the slightest bit gay, you can be sure i would not be in the closet, at least, not at this point in my life. If you want to live with hate and prejudice in your heart against any group of people, that is most certainly your problem, not mine. My goal is to try to enjoy my life and not be worrying about shit i have no control over.

    1. I wonder why my mom never called it that. I guess she stuck with what they called it in Benin. Pretty cool.
