VOGUE PARODY: 73 QUESTIONS ABOUT ME

I’ll have to say a big thanks to a wonderful/’merciful’ lady and fellow blogger – Mercy of Herry Chic Counsels for putting me on the hot seat. She must have woken up one fine morning and thought of what she could do to make me rack my brain this much. May the good Lord bless you for putting me up to the challenge.

Mercy is blessed with wisdom and wits. You’re sure to find sweet counsels on faith, daily living, and such profound subjects on her blog. Kindly visit her blog to benefit from the goodness it offers.

In case you don’t know, Vogue’s 73 Questions is a video series on YouTube whereby Vogue asks celebrities 73 questions under 10 minute. Bloggers and Vloggers have also started their own version of this method, which is a way of getting to know fellow bloggers better.

Personally, I think no ‘get-to-know-me’ scenario can be more exhaustive than this. Hence, reading this is synonymous to having a significant knowledge of my kind of person.

    1. Lol @ strolling. I’m just a lazy soul when it comes to sporting activities. God help me as I help myself. I’m glad you find the post interesting. I was amusing myself as I wrote it too. Life’s too short to be uptight all the time. Thanks always for your support.

  1. This post made my morning. I learned quite some things about you. I’ve seen the 73 questions on YouTube and they are quite interesting. I’ve had a very rough morning but I laughed through these responses. Please see your life oo being so specific about Nigerian Jollof rice. Is that so? Lol don’t let us start on this day.

    1. Awwwn Karen. I’m so glad my random responses was a booster. The things our random activities achieve sometimes… And of course, we all know that Naija jollof is better than Ghana jollof 😛. That aside jare, how’s your day going? Hope it’s taking a fine shape now.

      P. S. How come we can’t comment on the post you made for the Liebster award? Hope you didn’t tamper with your settings somehow. I guess I’ll send my ‘interesting’ comment to your mail.

      1. Lol as for you this guy, that’s all I will say. Please I love Nigerian food but don’t let us argue about Jollof. I love asaro, ayamashe stew, efo riro, and suya. I’m probably missing something lol. No my day isn’t well. Well I’ll explain when I receive your email.

        In regards to the post on the Liebster Award, I didn’t know the comment was disabled until someone made mention of it on a another post. The issue has been resolved now. Thank you 😊

    1. 😂 I’m glad I my answers had that effect on you. Ironically, I didn’t set out to make a comic work our of it. Yeso. Nothing like Naija jollof, especially the party type 😋. Hmm. I guess a trial, in Italy, will convince me.

      ☺ Thank you for reading through.
