It Wasn't Me
akiey, the Maarifa English blogger from
akiey5, Tafsiri's, bilingual blogger. If not, then I obviously failed miserably!
Now, to set the record straight for all who’ve kindly asked: how old I was in this pic, whether I was doing the helicopter (yes, Nick, am still LoL!), if I still wear the Rasta hats & whether that’s part of what led me to sport medium sized locs at some point in my life. For those who’ve seen my more recent pics & stated that I haven’t changed much around the…err, eyes & wavy eyebrows especially (?), the love for jeans etc,etc.
The good/bad news is No, It Wasn’t Me. Because I:
-have somewhat beady eyes but less intense than those in the pic
-do love them jeans & have several white shirts & tees
-am crazy about caps, collect them & have owned very many since I was 16 but…
-never owned a Rasta hat & I don’t remember wearing one esp when I had locs
-dance almost every single day even if it’s for 5mins but not sure I’ve done the helicopter
-had very similar physical features to this kid when I was little but I…
-do not have ear piercings & the child has studs in both ears
-did/do not have long hair & the child has shoulder-length braided hair
-had a nick name at this age which was/is akiey- (pronounced ‘akii’)
-do not know the kid’s nickname but I know that:
The kid’s first name has 5 letters & so does mine. The kid’s now 6yrs old & was 3 when pic was taken. We both love dancing, we do look alike, we last talked a week ago. Kid thinks am very rich, I know am not,lol! Kid thinks am very gifted, I know the kid’s one of my gifts. Kid knows about my love for photos but doesn’t know I used the pic as my blog photo…
Now, that I’ve cleared the air about my lovely niece representing me on blog for most of the year, allow me to draw inspiration from MJY’s wonderful Freestyle Friday post (I loved this Kui, great idea) & ask:
What 3 questions d'you have to ask akiey?
Feel free to ask any 3 about anything and I’ll try not to be vague in answering them. Thanks!
Note to self…I am setting myself up for some nasty bashing, hope I don't regret this!
