Life and living

Long time no see bloggie

I should learn to blog on my BB it’ll be faster and easier to update and so on(I’m sure I’ve said this before LOL)

I’ve been ok, trudging along actually but I’m absolutely grateful for life and good health

Ayobami is currently next to me yelling/jumping up shouting “I want cartoons” my Mr TLash is hitting me with the remote control and saying sorry to his crying older brother. Maybe I should just ask him to face the wall and have some peace and quiet?

Its been an interesting past 2 days for me. Ive had three consecutive run ins with the law. The 1st was at CMS, I was so lost in thought, everyone else had stopped for the red light and yours truly kept driving on. Some official in cream and brown uniform appeared waving his arms up and down. I sha stopped and said in my best fone “oh sorry sir I didn’t realise bla bla bla”. Story the man jumped into the car and started threatening me with a N45,000 fine. I didn’t even know what arm of Fashola’s govt he was working for. I sha parked and told him anything he likes he should do but me I am sha sorry sha it was a geninue error. I ended up parting with a whole N500. As if that wasn’t enough later on in the day, I slowed down to ask an okada man for directions, moved a few metres forward and some man in a white T-shirt said “you shouldn’t have stopped there” I nodded because I was talking on the phone. Next thing I heard “park,park”. Ah ah whatta gwan, the man sha jumped into my car. I didn’t even move off the road I just started shouting “you cant just jump into my car, you cant” I suspect the guy’s juju told him I was about to shout “ole Ole” and as suddenly as he hopped in he hopped out.

You’d think it would end there abi?

The very next morning, I was on the phone (as usual), when this RRS bike parked in front of me… “Sorry officer sorry officer” the man sha opened the door and jumped in*covers face*

This one said we were heading to Alausa and he actually handed me a copy of the new Lagos laws so I could know exactly how much trouble I was in LOL

Yours truly parked oh and told the man that he just had to have mercy on me oh because I was jobless and going to look for money LOL

When the man sat in my car for a few minutes and I asked him to please “find meN1000” the man got down from my motor oh LMAO

Note to self: Buy half a dozen ear pieces this week to avoid all these hassles. *sighs*

By the way I’ve asked the crying child to go and get some choco milo…..


My maid leaves in a few weeks, I must admit I will miss the bugger. The good thing is pending when I get a replacement i'd have to do all the housework myself. I’m hoping like last year when I had no help at home id get to shed a few pounds!!!

Friendship can indeed be so burdensome sometimes. That said I have enjoyed a few selfless and absolutely interesting friendships in my short span of life. I didn’t even realise I had people who would stick out their necks for me to such extents. Here’s to you my dear friend, plus her hubby who have shown me love these past few days. Too bad I can’t mention your name here ;) *hugs*

 In the words of my absolutely adorable niece "Tata for now aka TTFN"

doll (retired blogger) said...

pls be more careful of these new Lagos laws o!

Myne Whitman said...

Please be more careful. Apart from the law, talking on the phone is also dangerous to health.

Beautiful said...

lol...wait why aren't your doors always locked when driving? that's risky o.

Fluffycutething said...

My good people, I have since started ensuring my doors are locked and ac turned on at all times! Hand free matters too have been sorted.

@Doll- what's this retirement story I'm hearing???

Natural Nigerian said...

I was coming to say "Lock your doors", but I see that others have beaten me to it.

Be safe.

Sykik said...

Pls be careful oh....end of the year means all sorts to this Fashola pikins oh.....dey need money for ramadan and Xmas.

Lol...imagine asking the bros for 1k..even me I weak....that was quite funny

SHE said...

Me, I don't like people who use the phone while driving o! But since you now have hands-free, no issues. :)

How could you ask the man for money? I'm sure the zeal to arrest left him immediately!

Maybe they were easy on you because you're a woman though...

Luciano said... wa for Lagos o

Che said...

You are a character oooo. LMAO. I had an issue with some policemen last week which wasn't funny @ all. My sister's driver and I were going to Agofure park @ Jibowu to send some load down to sapele. Na so we reach one area and the only route was to use our reverse and get to the place which wasn't too far. LASTMA officials said we could do that in addition to using hazard lights. Na so we dey waka and don almost reach, wen dis police men in their bikes and moto just waylaid us. Ordered us to stop, made us unlock the doors cos they were pointing guns @ us, screaming and jumping around like maniacs. To cut the long story short jare, they were in the car with us and took us down to Maryland and we turned back and started heading towards Jibowu again. After much threatening from them and us begging, I had to part with 8K. Not funny at alllllll.

LOL!! Oh my goodness...

I learnt a serious lesson from this annd after an experience I had with traffic wardens who jumped into my car.

But you seriously have a lot of ideas to get them off ur alec!

You're a case! Just be careful so u don't end up spending TLash/Ayo's choco milo allowance on LASTMA/Council/MOPOL/FRSC

aloted said...

moral of the story dont use your cellphone while driving.


ibiluv said...

found it funny
you are like my bestie

personally....handsfree were invented for a reason

i truly hate it when them peeps try to jump in cars

i avoid them like a plague and i must admit i tend to avoid riding with peeps who make calls while driving

i'm claustrophobic-i hate being inside *any* machine for too long

peeps who make calls while dey drive make my journey longer

Picking up the pieces It may not completely make sense but I want to document this phase I passed through Sometimes life decides to hand...
