The saying, too much of everything is bad is the typical example of this twitter user, @StephanieOdili, who kept eating the food she could not finish, until she noticed she was passing out.
Many times, we find ourselves in this situation. While we dish out so much because we are hungry at that moment, we realise that we are unable to finish it.
All my friends know me as a foodie. In fact, i can do anything for food. I just don’t eat a lot, i eat in extra large portions. But today, I am convinced that someone else lives inside of me. What happened this morning almost killed me. I almost died.
So my mum had been complaining that no one was eating the plantain she bought as well as eggs and she wont buy again. So i decided to bone face this morning and fry some plantain and egg. I even thought of @ogeogwe and @Mz_Tomiiee then i remembered the latter was fasting.
Finally i fried 8 plantains and 6 eggs so that both of us can have enough to eat. I was happy with myself. I even added two galas and malt to my meal. Only for me to get to work and realize that @ogeogwe wasnt coming in today. Here i was with a cooler filled with plantain and egg
I am like, abeggi its not that big. So i started eating this food all by myself hoping that at some point common sense and fear of God will stop me. But not Chizoba Odili. I continued eating and eating. Until something stopped me. It was neither common sense nor the fear of God.
I saw that my hands were slow and my eyes didnt seem to see the cooler again. In essence, i was losing consciousness. Fainting was catching me and my hands and legs and mouth had become numb. My stomach looked like Beyonce’s in her 3rd trimester. I was falling off the chair.
I just calmly told God that of all the ways to die it cannot be like this. For food! In the office! On top 8 plantains and 6 eggs!! I prayed softly until the Holy Spirit adjusted me on the chair and i was beginning to place my focus where it needed to be.
Then the devil struck again and said ‘There is no need to remain like these pieces of plantain, kuku finish it with the egg’ I listened and started eating again, Then one man entered and asked me if i was okay because the orange top i wore had started blending with my face.
I smiled my last smile and just rested my head on the table.
Its been an hour now and I have come back to life. This morning was a typical example of ‘na enjoyment kill am’. Please pleae and please dont come near me with dodo and egg again. EVER! The other person that lives in my stomach that finished all that food, i have no words for you
All this seems very funny hours after but i kid you not. I felt myself passing away. I couldn’t breathe or move my body.
