I was talking to a colleague, and we kept whining that food options were so limited unless you wanted to spend heavily by ordering fancy stuff. But if like us you are a fast food and eatery person then you are stuck with rice, swallows, yam porridge etc. though occasionally (notice I said occasionally o, cos my power no reach) I order Chinese or something fancy. I also pack my lunch from home and even send the office assistants for some “mama put”
Well, back to my moi moi story, today I called Ngozi (the food angel in my office) and asked her what she thought I should eat, and then she said
“aunty, you do swallow yesterday, make we do rice or moi moi”
I was sick and tired of rice, so I said moi moi, and God supplied the nice Ijebu garri (don’t ask me how I got that.lol) usually I order it with a side salad, but today I decided to go rogue and drink garri! God bless my office, we have a very lovely lunch room with bar stools, a microwave, refrigerator and it is quite cosy to have lunch. So I sat down, soaked my garri and sugar and unwrapped the leaf (for the record moi moi in plastic, foil or any of those artificial packaging na counterfeit moi moi jare) and attacked! Best lunch ever.
The only problem now is getting my brain to function so I can work, but considering I could type this piece and upload on my blog, then I guess I am not as killed off by the moi moi like I thought.
Have a great day y’all!
