Last sunday I was chilling at home, my empty mind being slowly poisoned by satellite tv when I heard a knock on my door. It was Jehovah’s witnesses, doing what we all know they do best.
Anyway, after exhausting my best excuses and palliatives – I had to bring out the big guns – they left me with a very thought provoking “Watch Tower Magazine.”
“What would you like to ask God”
Just imagine, you just wake up in the morning;
Brush your smelly mouth,
Run go enter bus,
»»»»just to keep your appointment with God!
You reach there, enter the elevator to heaven.
Press “I” for infinitum and be whisked by a divinely propelled mechanical system into the inner sanctum, the Holy of Holies.
I can just imagine myself sitting on clouds, under the scrutiny of the inscrutable secretarial angel. *Poker face* I go first update my PM while waiting;
G lounge chillin’.
Or maybe I go put “on ma grind” or one of them lame things you Earthlings put on your BBM, Facebook or even tweet when you’re fortunate enough to gain entrance into a place reserved for your betters. Or in these circumstances, your ‘holiers.’
So the inscrutable angel faced chique will then tell me in a surprising British accent.
“Mighty G will see you now.”
Truth be told, I’m at a loss as to what to write now. If I’m finally there in the presence of HIM, werrin I go ask? My first thought was money! Money, money and lots of money!!! Asin ehn make money they pursue me round everywhere, make I run outta space to store money. You get the drift or should I explain more?
No need to shout, I understand you’ve gotten the drift!
But my mentality shifted a little while I was in church for the cross over service last night and the pastor was praying for God to embarrass “us” with blessings this 2013. And I so wanted to point out the meaning of “Embarrass” to him
Embarrass: to cause confusion and shame to; make uncomfortably self-conscious; disconcert; abash.
So people will now be talking about me and they’ll be like:
“Dankaro was so Embarrassed by the obscenely obscene level of his wealth, apparently every female he met tended to fall in love with him .”
On second thoughts I think I’ll like that tho’.
Anyways while sitting in church waiting for the service to end my thoughts ran wild. From very selfish personal ones to philanthropic thoughts and ultimately to heroic ones.
Maybe I’ll ask God for world peace and win all awards known to man.
Maybe I’ll ask him to do something bout this global warming and ozone layer thingy and also win every awards known to man.
I’ll sha ask him for a cure to cancer and still win all awards know to man.
Maybe a cure to HIV……he may not like that tho’ *thinking*
See… all my questions involved winning all the awards known to man. Goes a long way to prove that I’m inherently selfish.
So I’ve decided to throw this question at y’all:
‘Tis the first day of a new year. It’s 2013 and we all have hopes and expectations for this new chance at a better life.
So If you could ask God;
one request, answer guaranteed!
Drop a comment and tell me.
Nothing is too wild or crazy… bear in mind that “The distance between genius and insanity is measured by success”
What would you ask Him?
