I have this thing for weddings and ish. It might have stemmed from the fact that I had quite a deprived childhood, event-wise. Anyway, there is this photography page I "like" on FB. Oh, all those wedding pictures!!!! *drool* worthy!
Here is a note they shared at some point....

A: 45 minutes. (Jesos!!! oh ye married ones, biko, is this true? Make I kukuma renew subscription with Single with Boyfriend club! May we not encounter evil! 45mins is evil!!!)
Quick Update: Given that this has been very ambiguous, I am taking the liberty to interpret this as follows because: (1) I can (2) My mind is constantly in the gutter (3) Did I mention I can?Ok, so I strongly believe that the it means that boyfriend spends 45mins more than husband pre, peri and post coital.

Speaking of brides-in-the-making, I had a conversation with my mum yesterday and it bordered on hysterical. She had attended a wedding in Nigeria so I asked how it went. She did the usual, and ended with the usual prayers, Eyin naa a se iru e o (You will also do likewise wrt the wedding). So, boosted with my A1 in Yoruba language confidence, I decided to say a prayer and said "Eyin iyawo a m'eni o" (The bride's back will recognize the floor (literal meaning). Mama Mia just burst into laughter. After her explanation, I realised that I had just cursed this poor couple who don't even know who the heck I am! I was supposed to have negated my statement, ie "Eyin iyawo oni m'eni o". The translation of this is that everything is supposed to happen so fast (pregnancy) that the bride won't even realize they had been using the mat to do the deed.
Similarly, when Ngor (again, not the famous LadyNgo) was much younger, she had heard my folks greet people during the festive period saying "Odun a y'abo o". "Abo" in yoruba means female. So she thought it was gender sensitive and when the next male came calling she attempted to greet like an elderly person and said "Odun a y'ako o". By saying that, she had just cursed the coming year, saying it wasn't going to augur well!!!!
Oh the Horror!!!
Happy new month in advance. May your expectations not be cut short.
