5 days ago was my fifth wedding anniversary. Yesso! I’ve been married for 5 good years…hmmm. Really, it does feel much shorter than five years ago that i got married.

Among Lagos drivers, “shunting” is very common. Laughingly, my husband on a few occasions termed them “entrepreneurs”. He says they exhibit the core characteristic of entrepreneurs: they move out of a regularly moving queue (the norm) and move forward using another lane (uncertainty); when they get to the fore-front, they either force their way in, or appeal to someone to give them an in-road. The only difference between the two is that the driver breaks laws by facing oncoming vehicles in order to achieve his goal of getting ahead while the entrepreneur faces obstacles headlong until they give way.

In developed countries, it is illegal to scold/spank children, either verbally or physically, so children insist on having their way whenever they want to. Parents get frustrated once they get angry with their children and can’t do anything about it. But in Africa, “it is not so”….lol.
