WENDY WILLIAMS ON.... LOVING WHAT YOU DO AND CRAZY ANIMAL PEOPLE!





I was watching Wendy over the weekend (have her shows on auto record so I watched some of the shows I missed last week due to my TV and social media "fast") and I just want to share these two things she talked about that really interested me with you.




Firstly, she talked about how coming on stage made her feel. She says that once she hears, "....Live, from Newyork, it's Wendy!...." she starts to shake like a leaf! She said she gets so excited to be out there with her audience and that she knows people who have talk shows but who are no longer excited about them but with her, her heart starts to race behind the doors, she suddenly feels like throwing up and then, the door opens and lets her into her audience! Wow! Talk about doing what you love which also keeps you alive and has your adrenaline pumping! And the amazing part is that she says that this feeling has been the same, everyday, for eight seasons! That's eight years of having this daily adrenaline fix! I don't think I could live a normal, regular life after having had this daily fix for a long time, "normal" everday living after retirement might depress me, lol. That or all that adrenaline pumping would finally result in a heart attack one fine day, haha!

Secondly, she talked about "crazy animal people" dragging her on FB because she shared a photo were she'd locked her dog outside the house in a slight drizzle. She said she'd been cooking and her dog ( which is a big dog) gets too excited when she's cooking so she had to put him out on the porch- where she had set up shade and a chair for him to chill, just in case. However, the "dog people" came at her with, "Why don't you just let him in, you can see it's raining!". And Wendy's response is, "Duh! Because he is a dog and animals are used to getting rained on!"  And then someone goes, "But you wouldn't put your son outside...!", and this is where Wendy's pissed, "Excuse me, crazy animal people, humans and animals are totally separate, I do not consider my son an animal so, no, he would not be outside!".*applause from audience* Lol.

I thought that was funny but I've met people who are really, REALLY passionate about animals and whenever I am around such people, I enjoy getting a glimpse into how they "see" animals- they literally treat animals as they, human beings, would love to be treated and it is fascinating to watch, especially seeing as I am a Nigerian who knows exactly how animals are treated in my country.

I once went two months without eating beef and I'll tell you why. I had gone to the Slaughter market in PortHarcourt to buy beef on a very early Saturday morning. My customer had just a dried out piece of meat from the day before and asked me to exercise a little patience whilst he ran to the abbatoir to get fresh meat. I stood waiting at his stall and, out of boredom, decided to stroll towards the abbatoir to see what happens. Big mistake.

There were no less than seven cows being slaughtered before me and the scene was horrifying! They tied up the hind legs and fore legs with these really strong ropes and then forcefully dragged the hind legs, making the cow fall with a thud on its stomach and then one or two people attacked it from the side with a matchet, continously stricking it's neck while gallons of blood gushed out! The cow kept struggling, my gosh! The struggle to escape was real and the moan and groan of pain it let out! I couldn't believe it! When I couldn't take it anymore ( because, for some reason, I couldn't leave the scene ), I threw up at a corner and my customer wasn't happy that I came there. I was traumatized in no small measure but, I bought some meat for the house but couldn't get myself to eat beef for almost two months. I ate chicken though- I sabi kill chicken sef. I couldn't help thinking that a person who could comfortably slaughter a cow like that everyday would not think it any big deal to kill a human being!

I know that there are people who have turned vegetarian and vegan due to experiences like mine and I had a colleaugue who not only turned vegetarian (still eats eggs and cheese) due to having experienced a pig being slaugthered when he was a kid but he also became and is now some sort of "animal rescuer" so, yeah, "animal people" or "crazy animal people"- if that's what you'd rather refer them as- exist and they've got valid reasons as to why they are the way they are.

What are your thoughts about these? Would you like that type of work that keeps your heart racing everyday (I'm sure litigation lawyers can relate to this)? Would you go vegatarian/vegan due to animal cruelty or do you love meat too much?

Just thought I quickly share that with you :), I know, it's a bit lengthy, I'm learning to shorten my posts! Soon, soon....

Love Always,

  1. I highly doubt I would be a vegetarian but I don't eat a lot of meat. I could not handle watching the animals being killed though, I think it would be too much for me xox ♡
