tough times call for tougher measures: in this case,
the pandemic has decided that social distancing is compulsory
so, friends, neighbours, colleagues, and enemies: remember to practice social distancing
when you see me in Benin, and my Instagram posts read Dubai, practice social distancing
when you see me at a restaurant devouring a plate of fresh nkwobi, please avoid me
if your eyes catch me counting cash aggressively at an ATM, remember that it is a pandemic
when you suddenly remember that you need assistance beyond prayers and hugs, practice social distancing
I apologise for the distance that is between us, but I am not sorry
it’s a pandemic - my ultimate excuse not to be stressed. So, do not stress me.
