After a long stressful day at school,I decide to chill out and fill my rumbling stomach that was already singing a Fuji song.
As usual,I drew out the list of food I was going to get at mama nkechi’s canteen. At least #300 plate of rice would do.
I was walking so fast to the joint, when I saw Raymond; my long time crush,in his car. I quickly changed my walking steps and threw a wave at him. He asked were I was heading too..”I no wan dull na”,so I told quickly said i was going to eat out in the eatery nearby. He said he was there too and offered me a ride…”chimo!!God is a God of signs and wonders”I murmured.
On getting there,he told me he came here to see a business partner,I should feel free and enjoy myself, he will be right back.
Na so i begin to they order with pride!..”Gimme rice, chicken and a chilled drink”. I didn’t over do my order sha, like most of you will.
While eating,I was waiting for Raymond to join me. One part of me was like”You don’t enter one chance today”..I began to bind d devil and d evil spirit saying rubbish.
About 30minutes after I was done, Raymond was no were to be found. It started dawning on me what was happening. The waiter quickly came with a smile and told me my bill..With full tears in my eyes, I gave him the #2,000 I was planning on using to manage for the rest of the year.
Chai! #2,000 for just rice!The food self no reach anywhere!
I decided to stop by at Iya Shewa’s akara joint to step down a little. On getting there,I saw an endless queue with angry bird faces… na so I pick number!
The line was moving steady until it was until was almost reaching my turn and I heard”Akara don’t finish oh! Name only pomo remain!Make una no vex!”
That same moment,a mighty breeze blew me straight to the floor..I was just smiling and crying together..u know that feeling.
After wasting #2,000 for rice wey no belleful me, this woman con dey yan say akara don finish… Abeg just comman kill me!
Still lamenting,I felt a loud tap at my back!
“Bisi… wakeup oh! Morning don’t reach already”!
With a very broad smile, I thank God it was all a dream!
I just knew a normal me cannot be unfortunate like this! NEVER!
