Hello beautiful people and happy new month. So someone
sneaked off MONTHS ago finally sneaked back in. Still 'Yimu-ing' at that non-post update she put up. (could someone please translate
yimu' in English for my non-Yoruba readers?)
Hey by the way I discovered Hellofood and it's really cool. They are a food delivery service based in Lagos. They deliver food right where you are and all you need do is place your order from a specific restaurant near or far and they would deliver as fast as possible at a token depending on the volume of your order. What's even better, you pay on delivery. Cool right? Try them out. Check out the website here
So there was a time in my life when i saved my phone contacts with weird names depending on who you are and how mean/lazy i was feeling at the time. If you didn't know me well and picked my phone in trying to check a contact, chances are, you'd be sorely disappointed/confused. This was fun until something embarrassing happened. It would probably be the most embarrassing thing next to throwing up at work before getting to the restroom :( Malaria is the devil
Anyways, I had Joker. I met the dude during NYSC. He wanted to keep dreads so he decided the best way to do this was to stop combing his hair and to tangle his hair himself until he arrived at some kind of locks but not quite dready. He also grew his moustache long enough to pull. I actually wondered if girls kissed him. It looked more insane than anything. To think he was on my case *shudder*
Animal/Grumpy is my friend who was so grumpy when he was hungry you would think he had been starved for ages. Other times when he isn't Grumpy.com, he is always on the prowl for the next 'meat' *shakes head*
Crush was a cutie who had a crush on me for the longest time ever. The guy used to stalk my classes despite the fact that we had separate faculties (too cute).
Chucky's bride was another cutie whose boyfriend was nicknamed Chucky. Made sense right?
Maniac always talked about sex and how he doesn't mind being my teacher because sex is something i should know a lot about and practice before settling down. How magnanimous of him right *side f*cking eyes* Teacher indeed. Mshew
I also met Spiky at NYSC camp. He had hair all over and they were like spikes (i promise i didn't name him Spiky. One of my friends did lol). I had a lot more weird names but an incident made me stop for a while.
There was this guy who applied for a job in the company i work for and he came around to check what was going on. What struck me about him was his very black lips (i thought he was a heavy smoker and i was right). I told him the appointment list wasn’t out so he requested for my number. I am usually leery of total strangers calling and trying to form fast friends so I asked for his instead and told him I was going to call him when the list came out. I saved his name as 'burnt lips'. (meanie-me right? I know) A few hours later, he came back and asked to use my phone. I was busy with a customer so without thinking, I obliged. He made the quick call and returned my phone.
I closed from work much later and i wanted to redial a number i had dialed earlier so I checked my dialed call list and saw his name (burnt lips). I wanted to swallow my head. How much more could this foot be down my throat. He apparently dialed his line from my phone, saw what i saved his name as and said nothing. I felt so bad and embarrassed. He called me up later and asked if his lips really looked burnt and swore that he was going to quit smoking. It apparently hit him hard because according to him, he never realised how his image must have shut several 'doors' just because he was a smoker. He then proceeded to "Set P" lol. He still calls from time to time to refresh the "P setting" course lol but i learnt a huge lesson. Never give your phone out to strangers. Good lesson, no?
