Throwback Saturday!! Swear If You Never Did Any Of These

Let us be sincere with ourselves! I was privileged to be present at an occasion where Prof Wole Soyinka gave speech and made reference to the years he was running in the rain rolling motor cycle's tyre with a stick.

He was trying to convince parents not to deprive their kids of their childhood privileges. He then tasked the audience to swear if they never did such while young. He said most parents of this end time generation never allow their kids but to be caged indoor from Jan to Dec.

What about you, SWEAR

― If you didn't kill earthworm with salt.
― If you didn't play rubber band.
― If you never bathed in the rain.
― If nobody told you about India vs Nigeria 99-1.
― If you didn't sleep on the couch and wake up on. the bed
― if u didn't throw your milk tooth on the roof for. the lizards to take it and give you new ones.
― If you didn't just wash your hands and legs instead of bathing when going to school.
― If you didn't act film in uncompleted building or
under bed with friends.
― If you never flew a kite.
