Three special quotes as you go about your business this new year. Still a new year. Still fresh! Still exciting!
“Ah nuh every shut eye ah sleep”. Closed eyes do not necessarily mean a person is sleeping.
Things don’t always look obvious. Do not make assumptions.
“Fine out weh wata walk go ah pumpkin belly”. When you cut open a pumpkin, there is sometimes water inside it. How is that possible?
Set yourself challenges. Be creative. Be inquisitive.
“If yuh nyam egg (hegg), yuh mus bruk de shell fus”. To eat an egg, first of all you have to break its shell.
You have to live the with consequences of your actions. Take responsibility.
or… To reach your goal, smash that egg. Then scramble it, boil it, poach it, fry it, make a dessert, drink it raw (something to do with muscles which worked for Rocky but euuuuuuuuw! gagging as I write), put it in a cocktail (I’m good with that as long as I can’t smell the egg otherwise no thanks), make mayonnaise, make a quiche, make a hair conditioner (could end in tears but would also make a very good story)… use the shells to fertilise your orchids, add nutrients to your pot plants soil or simply throw them away. So many possibilities when you crack open the egg. Do something different with your egg.
This year, be more creative and inquisitive than you have ever been.
