If Your Dad Gave You Some Concoction To Ingest; What Would You Do?

Back in the day when we were much younger!

In . . . well, a good number of yoruba homes i believe (don't know about other tribes), we used to have some stuffs given to us to either lick or drink or even eat, abi?

Some funny looking "agbo" that you'd just ingest without question & go back to play, if you get my drift!

In some other cases, it could be tiny marks on the head or chest with ash rubbed into the fresh wound, right?

Well now that you're all grown up, if your dad came up to you in 2008 & gave you some powdery stuff to mix with palmoil or whatever & lick what would you do?

Are you going to question him that what is the stuff meant for? Given the fact that he's your father & of course he means no harm & it might actually be seen as rude to question him at all!?

2. Are you going to do as told without any qualms!?

3. Or are you going to head for the dust bin!?

Meanwhile, nothing do you o!

It is just one these Afro-traditional mentalities of fortification against whatever @ work o!

you r right but what actually scares me when i think back to all them times are the stories we hear nowadays of parents using their children for rituals and stuffs it would have been realli easy for any parent with that kind of dark deed on their mind to simply take their child to some babalawo and use them for rituals because of the implicit trust or to simply tell them to ingest a substance and that 'll have been it really but lets thank GOD that at least there was no side effect

Yeah!

I guess i understand you!!

That's a very difficult position indeed!!!

But the problem, for me, is not so much about any parent handing you stuff to either drink or lick or whatever!

It's about the source of such stuff & the game plan @ the back of the mind of the giver of the stuff to such a parent!!

I mean, i've heard stories of women who go to herbalists for something & end up being given the exact opposite of what they sought for initially!!!

That is the greatest fear one should have!

God forbid, should one go & fall into an enemies trap, with an unsuspecting parent serving as conduit!!

Only if I was still under age in 2008 otherwise, Did yours recently give you any of that? Or perhaps I knew what the thing does and I believe in his ways I might take it.
