In my new role as water-fetcher for the compound, I decided we really needed to load up with a good 200 litres (4 kegs worth) this eve to see us through to tomorrow midday. After the grunting, Yetunde (sis-in-law) squeezed my stomach and said, "Uncle Jeremy, you are a bloke." At which point, I become confused. Further discussion alerted me to the fact that in Nigerian English, a 'bloke' is the perfect guy - think Fola Adeola, Lanre Olushola and co. Nice to be in such suave company..
