Vanity: How My Whole Street Converged To Watch A Truck Deliver A Very Large Satellite Dish To A Neighbor :)

I recall my mum telling me about a man in my Neighborhood who became popular for engaging in money rituals just to buy the 80's edition of the Honda Accord, you wouldn't buy that "ca"r for 30k today.I Remember as a kid, my whole street converged to watch a truck deliver a very large satellite dish to my neighbour's house, 2day a dish one tenth that size delivers 5 times the value and is in almost every student hostel room.

 what about the Volkswagen Santana, Mercedes Benz V booth, 505 cocaine, all overtaken by Camry, Honda discussions and Infinity? .... vanity. 

A friend declared drinks for the boys because he just launched the Nokia Communicator for over a hundred grand in 2002. today that phone would embarrass the owner and is a joke compared to
the low cost everyday phone. What about the MTN sim card that many people went extra miles before they bought  for over 30k, today you will not buy it at N100.

People are still making the most amazing sacrifices over the 'VAINEST' of things, make enemies over worthless material things. What can I Say? Look back at that one thing you want to kill or die for today and see what becomes of it tomorrow, slow down with the sense of attachment and blind pursuit of things, for today's 'Gold' is tomorrows  'Copper'...........so be wise!!!.........happy New Week  y'all

  7. Na so Eesah! The joy of acquiring something is the pursuit. Once it is in hand, it becomes worthless as the eyes aim for new things to acquire. It's a never ending cycle.
