…tenses.

Yeah, you can laugh again; i said i like not Pidgin English, period.  However, if you want me to teach you how to speak Yoruba, i will if you ask nicely.

Hmmm, be careful how you speak anyone tho’. Why? Just knew you won’t but, ask. Anyway, what about this and this on NIMMO’s blog?

  1. Yikes!

    That’s more than a mistake if you ask me.

  2. Some say it was a ‘miscommunication’; others say a ‘slip of tongue’.

    I think its a sign of a much bigger problem we have with translating our thoughts.

  3. I’m on a tangent here but I would LOVE someone to teach me Yoruba. Any takers?

    Regarding the scenario on N.I.M.M.O’s blog though, I think it was a miscommunication, personally, and she was trying to save her significant other a trip out by saying her boss would drive her home. However, if people are already talking about her and her boss in the workplace, then care must be taken on her part, even if she knows she’s innocent, to make sure people have no reason to suspect anything.

    Have a good week, rethots!

    (I’m serious about wanting to learn Yoruba though!)

  4. she did not communicate effectively. that’s all.
    oga guy shld take a chill pill.

    so… u no like pidgin? norrin do am na. lol
    i will def watch my construction from now on.

  5. Miscommunication!

  6. The problem is if she was cheating on her S.F. would she be stupid enought to tell him, except for out of spite?
    After lunch some time ago, I told this lady “It was nice to have you for lunch.” She laughed and I guess she got the error on my part. Plus the quizical look on my face was also hjilarious.
    But then he should have asked for clarification on what she said. O ko, o fi ake kori.

    Nah, I aint no 35 dawg. You tryna say I sound old?

  7. i wont even pretend i understand what you’re talking about…

  8. RE: NIMMO’s scenario– there’s gotta be much more going on than that ‘slip’…kinda like ‘straw that broke the camels back’ or something…too drastic a move.

    However, there is truth in the saying that goes “It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it”

  9. hun? errrr….u’re probably the only one that understand ur blog.
