3 Things I’d Do Without Pay

I’d catch a grenade for ya
Throw my head on a blade for ya
I’d jump in front of a train for ya

Well, there go three things I’d never do even if you paid me in Ghanaian cedes.

I’ve always wanted to feel West African currency notes in my hands. I once read that touching money calmes the nerves. Something tells me I’d find Ghanaian cedes very relaxing. Save your all girls spa day, just send me few notes, am good.

Anyway, here are three things am ready to do for free. Save your coins.

Food

I love food, and food related activities. In fact I only go to places I know there’ll be food. So in this case if it involves food am in. Like the last time researchers wanted people to volunteer to eat an avocado a day. Too bad I was in Africa because I would’ve been among the first people to sign up. Imagine the possibilities of having an avocado a day. Just thinking about it makes me tingle.

Next time, please have this kind of research in Africa. Thank you.

Children

I’m an aunty to three amazing kids. I love them like they were mine. I love babysitting and this is something I’d do for anyone without charge. Even though they’re just children there’s so much we can learn from them. As adults think we know everything until a child says or does something that’s out of this world. I learn from them as much as they learn from me.

Cleaning up the Environment

Sometimes I volunteer to plant trees as re-afforestation effort in growing back our forests. One other thing I’d do for the environment without charge is cleaning it. I don’t mind picking up plastic waste on the beach or in the city. I look at it as my responsibility for the environment.

This planet has a growing plastic problem; cleaning it without pay is something I look forward to.
