“twolittle mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse gave up and drowned. Butthe second mouse wouldn’t quit. He struggled so hard that he churned the creaminto butter and crawled out.
“Thislittle anecdote above explains the two kinds of guests that you’d find in aNigerian event. Somewould struggle for food; and when it seems it would be in vain. They threatento throw away the cooler of food if not served immediately. Viola!Thefood struggling guest gets a steaming plate of food.Theyhave churned the cream into butter and crawled out. Whensome ask for food and are not attended to, they pretend that they are not evenhungry. They end up salivating at the sight of another person’s plate of food.
The one that came as a result of her threat of the god of Iron killing all thestewards if they don’t get served. Atmany Nigerian events, there is this desire to take a picture with thecelebrants. This happens at weddings.Thatpicture with the blushing bride and handsome groom! Everyone craves for that. Thegenesis of issues is when the photographer denies someone a shot with thecelebrants. Only group pictures please! He yells. This forces people to losehope.
And there is nothing more damaging than the loss of hope. Thisloss of hope is a struggle. And it would differentiate the two kinds of guests.Therewould be that person who will threaten to break his camera if (s)he doesn’ttake a picture with the celebrants. This forces the photographer to decipherwhat his best line of action is.Acamera or a photo. Hemakes his decision with a perfect shot of such persons and the celebrants.
Thenof course, there is that person who after his request was turn down, walks off.This person is not interested in causing a scene.Andwho are they?Theguests!Nigerianevents are a struggle. Theline between sanity and insanity is a very thin one. And you get prepared forsuch by signing up with @sarfeevents to give you the best of delivery.
