1. I laugh at very dumb jokes.
Key word: LAUGH. I do not giggle demurely or snicker with my hand over my mouth like a teenager engaged in juicy gossip. I do not titter either. I open my mouth and like a hefty African woman with little regard for serenity, I splurge rotund bellows of infectious laughter over a five kilometer radius.
DISCLAIMER: I enjoy intellectual jokes as well, but every single time, I catch myself smiling at them rather than actually laughing. No idea why.
2. I love to read and write.
Everything from Neil Gaiman to Chimamanda Adichie is fascinating to me. I however find hardcore fantasy novels and graphic novels more difficult to digest. Maybe its because they don’t resonate too deeply with me. They tend to make a grand entrance into my soul, say hello to old friends, then leave before the master of the ball arrives. Young adult, historical fiction and non-political non-fiction are my darlings. They last to the end of the party and engrave their images into my memory forever.
DISCLAIMER: I am willing to try reading the genres I have expressed distaste towards. However, be warned warrior!!! It will take a lot of time and energy.
3. I am a foodie.
Trying out new dishes and recipes is an amazing experience. I also get strange food cravings, so you’d best be prepared to go deep fried tilapia hunting with me way past midnight.
