Aunty: '...but what does the federal government hope to achieve by banning one of the cheap and easy to get contraceptives?' She thought out loud... raising my head from my IPad where coincidentally I was already reading Linda Ikeji's blog post on the ban of postinor and silently laughing at the comments about tu-face, I responded thus:
Me: huh? Aunty it's Okada they banned oooo. Which rumor are you starting again
Aunty: taaa...haven't you heard that they have banned postinor2?
Me: how many things are they banning na? It's Okada I know they banned...now in the space of 2mins you've said they ban contraceptive...now all of a sudden they ban Postinor2. Which is which?
Aunty: the contraceptive is Postinor2
Me: *insert dumb look* really? Why did they ban it? Is it painful?
Aunty: are you mad? She was probably wondering what my problem was this afternoon, she had an exasperated look on her face
Me: wait I'm just asking na... Why are they banning it? Is the injection painful or what is their reason?
Aunty: which injection na? It's a tablet...postinor2 is a tablet... Two tablets
Me: for real? You don't say!!! Contraceptive now comes in tablets? Wow!! I'm impressed. So what's the problem with this drug? Did it just come out? Is that why they are just discovering it has a problem?
I asked innocently waiting for answers to my question... My aunt got up from her chair, looked at me like I was a character in cowboys & aliens and said:
'My dear make use of google...spending all your time on Facebook is doing nothing for your intelligence. Google 'Postinor2' so you have something intelligent to say when others are talking about it...mscheeeew'.
With that smart retort she went back to her giving her laptop her full attention...
Postinor ke! Postinor2 ni! Federal government...small girls like us don't know such things ooo. LMAO
