Hi guys! Top of the morning to y’all. . . Don’t worry, I’m not absconding anytime soon and I’m gonna fulfill everything I have outlined as regards this blog for the year.
So, this week, I’d be doing two tags courtesy one of my favourite bloggers/vlogger – Tosin Alabi a.k.a. Lynn Japhet! She blogs on Faith, Lifestyle, Fashion, Food, Education and much more at http://africanismcosmpolitan.com and her Youtube name is simply Tosin Alabi. . . One day, I’d have to share a particular thing that will make me talk more extensively about Tosin but till I do, y’all have to keep your fingers crossed, run off to her blog and youtube and go check her out!
The first tag was on ‘Blogging in Nigeria’ – a collaboration between her and the amazing Sisi Yemmie of Sisi Yemmie TV and sisiyemmie blog. Every blogger was tagged and it could either be done as a post or as a youtube video but since I don’t have a Youtube channel yet, I’d be sticking to my blog!. . . So, if you are a blogger and you are reading this post, I’m also tagging you to do yours!
So at first, I thought I was going to do the first one which is ‘Blogging in Nigeria’ till I found this one which is ‘100 Questions No One Ever Asks’ and then I decided to give this a go first, then later during the week, I’d do the previous one!
Here it goes!
1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed – Closed actually; not because it smells *lol* but because I’m kinda used to closing it.
2. Do you take shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels? – I have never really been in hotels like that, so, No!
3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out? – I’d say it depends on the mood but most times, the sheets are often tucked in. If I could take the effort of spreading the sheets at all, I’d tuck them in.
4. Have you stolen a street sign before? – Hahahahahaha! No way!
5. Do you like to use post-it notes? – No! I hardly forget things and whenever I think I might forget and I do not want to, I’d use my diary and not a post-it!

Oh! A secret I’d like to tell outside the 100 questions (if I have one): I don’t like bread! Bread is a ‘food’ I eat when I don’t know what else to really eat. So, when it’s not sliced, I like it very brown *lol* If it’s not brown to the point that it looks like it’s gonna get burnt, I won’t buy o!. . . So I eat only the brown part of the bread which is the back and then I throw away the white part *hahahahahaha, I know right, weirrrrrrd!* There’s this taste it gives me whenever I eat the back that I don’t get from the white.
That’s all guys! Expect the second tag coming soon!
