Happy Hump day! Wednesdays are always not too bad because you know once you cross over the weekend is near, how y’all doing? Hope the week is going good. My week’s been pretty ok, no complaints yet and hopefully none at all.

So I remembered one tori like this that I wanted to share with you guys. Brace yourselves o this is like Nollywood coming to real life.

Sometime last year, one of my girlfriends had asked me to follow her to the airport to pick up her girls that where coming in from Abroad, I knew one of the girls so she decided to fill me in on the other one. Basically chica is one of them Lagos Shake Down Babes (LSDB) aka a Big Girl. She does whatever but picks the BIG BIG rich and wealthy whoever’s she can to get what she wants, she’s a I don’t give a hoot type chic, I mean whats a girl to do, to maintain here lace wigs, expensive bags, she gots to hustle man…me I dey fear for them home based naija babes o but that’s a topic for another day. Anyways that’s how we got to the airport, she spotted them and got all excited..she bursts out “I trust LSBD!!” You see the mutual friend we both had was jejely pushing her trolley but LSBD was strolling in front while some dude was behind pushing hers! So my friend was like am sure she met the person on the plane and has sharply organized the guy.

When they finally arrived at our car, we got down and were all hugs with our mutual friend. I turned around to say hello to LSBD only for me to see the dude who was pushing her cart…am like WHAAATTTT??!?!?! UNCLE is this you?? The guy was one of my uncles!!, not blood but you know how we call everyone uncle, anyways that’s besides the point, back to the storyyy! I have never seen anyone want the ground to open up and swallow them immediately! He’s eyes got bloodshot, he started sweating, coughing and smiling… “ehnn Abeni, how you??  I was just at the airport I missed my flight yesterday and saw my friend so I decided to help her to the car” see bold face lie o, how did you miss your flight yesterday but suddenly appear in the airport today, and to think that he had his wife and 2 beautiful kids at home probably waiting for him.

You would think that’s the end right?? WRONG! So when it was now time to leave I said to my uncle are you not going to put her stuff in the trunk? He then cough some more and opened his mouth to say “eeeeehn Abeni, I will be dropping her at her hotel room, I don’t want to inconvenience you guys” I was like REALLYY?? See this man see JJC o. That’s when it all clicked, he had probably told my aunt that he was travelling the night before, got their hotel room and was waiting patiently for LSBD to come so he can have a gooooooood time with her, after all she’s only 20 something yrs younger than him..no big deal! I just burst out laughing and of course also shot him a nasty look on the side. We said our goodbye’s and ofcourse talked  and laughed more about it in the car, we all couldn’t believe it, because who would think of all ppl it would have turned out to be my UNCLE!

To me this only happens in nollywood films, but I guess they need real life stories to write their scripts from and I just happened to have received a firsthand experience! Hahahahahahahaa

Enjoy the rest of your week, ;-)

Hi guys!!!

geeeeeezzzz...I have been completely MIA and that's horrid horrid of me. I didn't even say happy May day, haven't even put a post up in the whole month of May and we are almost mid way through!! sorry ppls...stuff was kind of dull for a bit then got crazy at my job, freaking 3rd round of lay-off's, you know it's bad when the person that hires you gets laid off!! mehn it was like film trick but once again Thank Master Jesus that I am still employed even if it means more work and the same pay.

So nothing really new on my end asides been diagnosed as a WORRY ADDICT, yes a dear friend did an analysis and came up with the result that I have this issue...it was actually only in relation to one aspect of my life that we were talking about but then thinking about it, I definitely worry about a lot of things in all aspects...it's crazy...giving myself unnecessary headaches...so right now am on a 40 day abstinence of trying not to worry and my friend agreed to be my Sponsor incase I slip don't know how it will work being that Sponsors are supposed to be available 24/7 and they are 6 hrs behind, what happens if I slip 9am my time...who will I reach out to?? hehehehe...anyways they told me to say this wonderful prayer called the serenity prayer, which by the way is the AA prayer but in their words am to make it my woosah prayer, here it goes

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

Isn't it a wonderful prayer, hopefully it'll see me through whatever situation am going through with added prayers for reinforcement. Asides that my weekend was great, kind of sad that it ended because I wouldn't see my loverman for almost a month, mummy is in town and we know how that goes, no visiting for a lil while. So I will try not to go away for too long and am currently still trying to catch up on blogs so see you on yours. Have a great wk ;-)
