” A prophet has no honour in his house “

It’s not like I’m a prophet or anything but we know that Jesus speaks in parables right? Good.
My folks don’t respect me anymore fam.

They won’t see me for days, sometimes weeks. When I get back, they’ll give me like few hours to be a visitor but the next thing, I have to peel yam or wash the freaking plates or load the washing machine.

Don’t get me wrong. I like to clear the dishes, I dislike peeling yam because some tubers are from the pit of hell, I like to mop floors but can I get at least three days to myself to arrange my body, soul and mind? Maybe two days perhaps? Because I don’t understand this anymore.

I got home one Saturday and all was well with the world. My folks went to church the next day. I’d just finished my own home service and was trying to arrange my body and mind to sleep when my phone rang.

Mom: Abigail how far? Are you at home?

Me: yes na. Did I go anywhere before ni?

Mom: Pele. Oya help us peel yam. Take garden eggs from the fridge and boil it too

Me: haygod o. What else ma?

Mom: sorry na. Make sure the yam is enough. I’ll soon be home. I’m waiting for your Dad

Me: it’s me that sent you to marry Pastor ni? Be coming home jor

Mom: Pele my dear. Please na.. oya do it

Me: okay ma

I did it and ever other chore I had to do but was I able to sleep?
You know the answer.

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚you even hear please. It’s like they’ve been expecting me even before I said I was coming. I thank God for sleep in times like this. Sleep won’t just agree at that point so sleep wins. The rest comes after๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคญ

I can totally relate. I do that to my siblings too so I am also guilty๐Ÿ˜.
Anyways, how about, โ€œcan you please help peel and boil yam *thank you*?*
Thatโ€™s a question but thank you has changed the โ€˜?โ€™ to a โ€˜.โ€™
This life no balance at all!!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
