Do you buy garri (cassava flour) without tasting it first?
Do you buy a car without first test-driving it?
Its only normal to taste garri before buying.
But that’s why its garri. Its extremely rare to attend a societal event and be served garri during the refreshment segment.
You don’t go to KFC, TFC or Barcelos and ask to taste their food before buying. You simply believe that it would be void of roaches and other evils.
So why should we use the phrase as an excuse?
Cars are been tested before been bought most times. But then again, who is more important. You or a piece of metal?
Now, I’m angry at this moment. How can you even compare yourself to garri? Garri??? For crying out loud, you’re the apple of His eyes not the garri of his eyes. And last I checked, you don’t take a bite from an apple before buying.
The fact is that comparing yourself to some inanimate object is painfully unacceptable considering the inherent unexpendable resource you have. You’re the most valuable thing ever created. Remember that.
