Words

I was watching a yoruba movie sometimes last month with a friend of mine....it got to a scene where the man in the film was having sexual intercouse with a spirit while sleeping,..... sha, i told my friend the meaning in English...SUCCUBUS.

She nearly killed me that i formed the English cos she's never heard such word, ok.. i went as far to tell her the opposite is INCUBUS(when a woman does same in her sleep) .... she nearly choked, she had to call up a couple of friends to confirm the word, awon olodo, they said there's no such word.... enough for English.. if una no know am, does it mean it doesn't exist?

I wan vex die, cos this my friend na one oyinbo person, she beleives she understands oyinbo pass anybody.... words wey i don sabi since secondary school., warramess......

Anyway, she called me up some few minutes ago, that she looked it up in the dictionary and Lo, and behold, she saw the meaning there..... yeye girl...am sure she will spread it out to everyone around her, cos she's earned another word in English..

So to u, abeg, are u hearing the words for the first time(i trust u all to be intelligent)
