35. Midnight. Bottom deck, at the back on the left.
I knew the dating game was complicated, but I hadn’t taken this into account:
Nigerian lady #1: You know, we’ve been talking on the phone, he seems nice, we just talk for hours, he asks me about my day –
Nigerian lady #2: What’s his name?
Nigerian lady #1: A—-.
Nigerian lady #2: A—- what though? What’s his full name?
Nigerian lady #1: A—- B—- P—- O—-.
Nigerian lady #2: P—- O—-!
Nigerian lady #1: I know, but don’t worry, I checked and it’s OK because it’s on his mother’s mother’s side, and on my father’s mother’s side.
Nigerian lady #2: Good, sorry to ask but the thing with polygamy is that you can’t tell just from his actual last name. You have to check them all.
I silently absorbed this advice, and am now passing it on to you. Because none of us want to accidentally date our cousin / half-sibling / aunt-once-removed. Take note, people!
