In-house Balotelli (@FinallyMario) Mania
Excerpt from a conversation earlier today with Mum.
Mum: Heh Madame, you are standing in front of the TV.
Me: Yes Mum, I’m just watering the plants, give me a sec….
Mum: Plants? But I want to see the TV, watch the football. Don’t you know that my son Balotelli is playing?
Me: Yes, I know Mum. It hurts my heart that he went to Liverpool, Loftus Road (QPR) suits him much better.
Mum: Move child! I want to see him. I don’t care if he was playing for the Moon. Who are Liverpool anyway? Don’t you know he is from Konongo? Asante-Akyim, just like me. He has got pure Ashanti spirit running through him, that is why they are all scared. He will kick people and they’ll all fall down like leaves. His fufu-power has been replaced by pasta-power but it is all the same.
Me: Ha! Mum you make me laugh. You’re obsessed with Balo/Jamo (she previously thought that his name was Jamotello). I need to go back to Gh quick smart!
Mum: Hmm, so you didn’t see that I even went upstairs to get my best glasses so that I can see him properly? He is my Ashanti son, I have to support him.
