Feminists before Chauvinists (males, of course!)

We are not unfamiliar with the law 'Bros before Hoes'. Last night when I was viewing 'Think Like a Man' film, there was a scene in a bus where Kevin Hart, requesting his mates not to answer their girl friends' calls, uttered the unwritten law 'Bros before Hoes'. Of course, we know that in a... Continue Reading →

Hero Worship

One comfort is, that Great Men, taken up in any way, are profitable company. We cannot look, however imperfectly, upon a great man, without gaining something by him. He is the living light-fountain, which it is good and pleasant to be near. The light which enlightens, which has enlightened the darkness of the world; and... Continue Reading →

When my son was a child, I was more prudent about the use of these valuable yet unapproved words. Nowadays,... Continue Reading →

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall . . .

Dragging a reluctant teenager for a hair cut to a salon is not easy but last Wednesday when he readily consented I was  a little surprised but a quick glance at his head made me realise that the untameable afro on his head was the reason for the compliance. Fortunate to have obtained a parking... Continue Reading →

Toilet Seat: A Place of Wisdom

I parked the car in the driveway, stumbled out of it, fumbled with the keys before opening the front door and, to prevent a disastrous occurrence, ran to the toilet and thanked heavens for just making it to the toilet seat in time.
