Friday; i went to see my friend in her school. i was really happy 2 see her, haven't seen her in like 7 months (last yr). i also found that some of my friends from high school were also schooling there, it was such a happy re-union.We talked and talked, bout the usual girl stuff, i felt really refreshed and all, lovely day.
Saturday; so this is what the topic is all about. i went to the supermarket to buy sumthing, i dint find it in the stalls so i went to ask, the attendant when they would have it in stock. lo and behold this white boy who looks like someone i know, he turns and there, its him. We attended the same high school and he was like 2 or 3 yrs ahead of me( lemme clear this up, I'm in Nigeria, my school was sort of posh, like 10% white people). i had already said (I'll call him josh), hey josh before it occurred to me not 2 be too forward, so as it happened;
josh; yeah hi (looking like hes wondering)
me; high school
me; bla blah high schl
me; you were my friend(god knows why i was acting like i had jus met jay-z)
josh; (nodding slightly)
me; i have a picture(opening my wallet to bring out my 9yr picture, why was i being so... anyway i couldn't back out and jus say no its not you so i just had to push it)
josh; of me?
me; no(silly)me, (handing him the picture)
josh; (nodding obviously)yeah, i know you, wow u've changed so much(considering the fact that we dint wear jewelry in my school and i cut my hair, i did sort of look like a boy), wow, common gimme a hug
me;(at last he does remember, the truth is he was actually my school father, i was literally tiny) good to see u
josh; yeah good to see u too, wow look at u
me; (i forgot to say i was like really sweating,that day, besides i had finished my 'business') bye josh
josh; oh ur going already, i jus came to buy somethings. so where r u going,
josh; how did u get here
me; i took a bike(naija 4 u since i dont have a car)
josh; can i drop u,(i'm lookin like..) okay i'm thirsty can i have water to drink in ur house, i'd like to meet ur parents, can i
josh; okay id just drop u
me; okay thanks
josh; so have i changed?
me; not at all
josh; mm, so what r u up to
me; I'm in blah blah,
josh; oh cool
me; so how about u
josh; we'll talk now..
so he buys his stuff, and takes me to my house , i tell him to drop me at the junction, I'm not ready for my mom's curious questions. he asks 4 my number, what would i say: no cos what, since i initiated the Reunion, i drop the digits, alright bye, mimi I'll call u.
next day he calls, u've grown, you're beautiful, id like to see u sometime, please let me know whenever Ur around, thanks.
the issue is, i haven't been able 2 put this dude out of my head, he's white cute, okay but i don't know wassup wiv me.
Sunday; went to church, my girls came, packed my clothes(one of those things), had a swell day and my main friend kept teasing me about josh
aside; i thot vals day was going 2 be boring, but maybe not..
I'm currently listening to YOU ARE by Lionel Richie, beooootiful song

I chose to blog about this 2day cos of a call i received this morning.this is about those big old men who most likely know one of ur parents but still decide to toast you. the world, particularly Nigerians keep complaining about the irresponsibility of youths today, youths this, youths that, how about agbayas. Its not such a big deal if u find someone old enuf to be ur parent toasting you, the big deal is when they know ur parent and or are friends wiv them. This includes all those agbaya relatives who molest kids. i will be sighting 3 exampes;
- travel agent;
this man is the owner of the travel agency we use. the first time i saw him, i was wiv my mom. she greeted him and i followed suit, 'oh is this ur daughter', 'shes very pretty and she looks nothing like u' 'u shd bring her along more'. now this man owns a big succesful agency, is married wiv kids, now one thing i so don't like is promiscous married men. The next time i saw him i went wiv my mom, i was sitting in the reception area and my mom went in, he came to ask me, 'xcuse me who d u want to see' and i told him my mom was inside, 'oh okay, mrs *******' yes. later on he came to meet me 'erm sis, pls come wiv me' so i follow him then as if to go upsairs he says 'can i have ur number' now trying to be respectful, and not being biased(at least he knows my mom) i drop the digits. the next time i see him, (at the agency wiv my mom)'hey, how r u'(its late cos we were s'posed to travel that nite, so the receptionist is not on seat)'i've been tryin ur number, did u give me a wrong number' no i did not, 'okay say the number again, blah blah, i hope he never gets thru, but ya'll no now..
i'm writting stranger, cos i dont know this person. i was in the car wiv my mom. someone calls my mom and she picks up the fone, its not proper but hey its naija, so this men in a space bus on the other lane start honkin the horn signallin my mom 2 hang up, i try signallin them to stop, that shes still on the fone, the guy on the passengers side makes a fone sign, lo and be hold a boy sellin milk comes to tap on my window i wind down and tell him that i dont want to buy milk u know naija pple, selling things in traffic(my neice once said she liked nigeria bcos u can do ur shoppin on in ur car, on the road)only for the guy to drop a complimentary card on my lap, courtesy the man in the spacebus, though hes busy mouthing 'call me' im thinkin, why would i want to call this agbaya.
- phone repairer
So this man is the one who fixes, the phones and lappys. now it sounds a bit petty but hes not, very big shop, as a matter of fact, he sels phones, laptops, mp3s, ipods, so it a big place. i go with my mom most times. so on this day i wet wiv my mom to pick my fone that i jus bought(a t-mobile fone), my mom steps out of his office to move her car and then this old man asks me 4 my number, what can i do;say no i dont give my number to strangers" i had to drop the digits. about a wk later, the agbaya calls
AGBAYA3; "hello, this is *******"
me; oh good morning 'sir'
AGBAYA3;"how r u"
me;fine thank u sir
AGBAYA3; is ur mom there(imagine that)
me;no sir, shes in the next room
AGBAYA3; okay, so are u always with your mom
me; yes, most of the time
AGBAYA3; so its not possible 4 me to see u alone
me; erm no sir
AGBAYA3; too bad, so hows the weather there
me; its also cold
AGBAYA3;so will u tell ur mom i called
me; i dont know
AGBAYA3; u dont have to
AGBAYA3;so take care
the old thing wd have actually wanted to go on a date wiv me, may god punish all agbayas, amen
I think that,all these agbayas have phsychiatric issues and i also think that they don't have the guts to handle pple in thier own age range, cawards oshi
A word to the agbayas; GO GET SOME TEETH
