I have had this domain name for years – paulboakye.net. But I’ve been drowning in a sea of spam email messages of late. Endless offers of hot Russian girls and cheap Viagra tablets made sifting through email messages a tiresome and potentially dangerous pursuit. The phishers and spammers had got hold of my email address, and they were using it mercilessly. A friend suggested I try G Suite.
Bumped into this guy I worked with once. CEO of the company. I only worked with them one day a week, but would often have to write reports and conduct meetings with their social media clients. Things usually started off very well at first. I would make a presentation, get the clients nodding along, but then somewhere toward the end of our meeting, he would get up and begin to speak.
I’m on holiday in Jamaica hanging out with friends and some people they know. Everybody is telling stories. People are laughing and fooling around, and then, they turn to me and say, “Hey, Paul, tell us a joke from England, nuh man? You must know whole heap-a-good jokes from over there.” I’m like, no, you know, I’m no good at jokes. They say, “Come, man. We’re all here telling jokes, drinking rum, and acting stupid. What you have for us?”
