My friend is buying some things from Amazon and asked if I wanted anything. Of course yes, I want THINGS! However there are some things I want now and I think I might be able to get from an indigenous online store. So I told him what I want from Amazon and he asked me to pick the things I want here and charge them to him. Then came the question, what online store. I've never really been able to differentiate between certain (similar) things. Last night my cousin wanted something from Konga but they said delivery would take 7-10days. She was upset so I asked her to try Jumia and she said nah, she'd rather wait for/with Konga. I asked why she preferred Konga and all she did was scrunch up her nose at Jumia, yet gave no reason whatsoever. So as I stare at my screen, excited at the prospect of owning new things I'm not paying for, I'm trying hard to decide what store to shop from.
A few days ago I noticed for the first time at MM2 Airport that KFC and Chicken Republic share just a wall. I've never been able to tell the differences between the two. Since my Uber was a bit wrongly booked and went to the International airport instead and thus delayed me, I had time to wander. I strolled into both eatries. KFC was packed and the other was empty save for a sprinkling of people. I wondered what informed the decision of the people at KFC. I mean, those two places are one and the same to me! (I also notice they're usually very close in proximity. In Victoria Island, Ikoyi, Lekki 1 etc. Who knows why?)
I also face this challenge when it comes to Nigerian music. Most of our artists sound exactly the same to me, so for the life of me I can't imagine why some people prefer one over the other. Wizkid and Davido for instance, I can't figure out why they don't have the exact same fans!
I maintain that the only reason I still have a social media account is because I have a blog, so it only makes sense. Still I notice I don't have preference of one over the other. Now while Twitter and Facebook are not similar, I've made an observation over time and wondered about it. Most serious facebook lovers are rather indifferent or even disdainful towards Twitter and vice versa. I'm yet to figure out why.
Lastly guys, this to me is also one and the same but I notice different people feel differently about sex at different times of the day. I don't know if it's all in their mind or if there are real factors that inform their choices.
So tell me your preference guys, and also tell me why.
Konga or Jumia
KFC or Chicken Republic.
Wizkid or Davido
Facebook or Twitter
Early morning sex or night sex
Tell us which among the two you prefer and it would be great if you could also tell us why!!
