I am used to ranting on my birthdays πŸŒš, so let me give today a shot πŸŽ£. I hope my aim at humourantology (wordsmith, I dey town) works…Lol. I am honestly beginning to feel like a dinosaur… aka. Batman πŸ¦‡and the more the ticking minutes merge into the years, the more I realize the value of moments. 
I have written and shared many lesson on my other birthdays, lessons you can find on my blog; www.theagleswingfoundation.blogspot.com, lessons I wish you will check out. πŸ™πŸΎ
Today is about waterproof, yes waterproof. Before my kind gets book long, let us pray God rest his soul🀧. He blessed us with so much comedy that he was once my hero. And may the young for sure grow (sorry if you’re not Ghanaian too).
Take me back to class 4, just about 8 years old.🀴🏾 Fridays were for spelling bee, well not my favourite if you have followed my writing for awhile πŸ˜Œ. Our class teacher had given us a list of words to learn how to spell, but as for me and spellings, we have not always agreed on very simpel** things. Everybody had to spell a word and in my tiny little mind, humour was going to be my word irrespective of whatever Mr. Agyei asked. πŸ’ͺ🏾
So I went for spellings with rolled brooms as spectacles 🧐, I guess for as many as wonder when I started wearing spectacles there you have it πŸ˜‡. Right in my pocket, tacked in, ready to rock and rollπŸ₯°πŸ˜ƒπŸ’ƒπŸΎ. 
My heart throbbing πŸ’“, moving towards the back of the queue as much I could but my time sure did come πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚. 
I don’t remember the word I was asked to spell chale, all I remember was Jesus saying I am finished on the cross😨😱. So I pulled my handmaid broom spectacle, wore it, and gave the word a good massacre…🍻. Don’t judge me. Everybody laughed, not because they heard what I spelt, but because of what I wore. But it surely did end in tears πŸ˜­πŸ˜«β€¦ it appears Mr. Agyei had zero limits for wits, and my tears made the day more humourous.😁
 I then became, like the man who inspired me to humour, water proof. πŸŒš
I look back to that moment and I realize how much power there is in fostering calm and even fun in difficult moments. Life is hard mehn πŸ€“, and let no one who has not seen, held or felt hardness be the first to throw a stoneπŸ₯Ά (to the pure all things are pure, Amen…πŸ€ͺ). 
In those hard moments, a little play, a little smile, a little kindness (bibia kakra kakra🀑) makes the suck worth gulpings.πŸ’…πŸΎ
Today is not for long rants, just a quickie to say, be resilient, even water proof, not wearing your sensitivities on your sleeves and enjoy some wits. Always remember, no one gets out of life alive, so wink πŸ˜‰ and have some fun. Don’t give too much f*ck…. sorry spelling mistake πŸ˜€πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™‚πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™‚πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™‚πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™‚
