I didn’t even know Nanya had a nickname with ‘container’ as a suffix…looooool.
Hey BMG blog readers, please find below my very 1st male guest feature on the blog. The reason this is the first is not from a reluctance to feature more male guests but because so far, all the prospective male guests I’ve approached have proved elusive. I have sent out a number of requests to my male readers asking them to feature, and I find myself chasing, and chasing them to write down just a few lines. In fact with Nanya, it took 6 months, and if not for the ‘Rona, he would have been ‘posting’ me still. Fun fact- Nanya is siblings with Miss P who was the very first guest feature here. For what this feature does not possess length wise, it definitely compensates for, in pidgin English & witty comments. Nanya is hilarious & I do enjoy his quotes. Hope you enjoy them too.
