Market tins#

*sighs* I wrote my list for the market a few hours ago and i've been filled with trepidation at the thought of going. All that talk talk just drives me nuts. 'how mush* is tomatoes my customer?' last last abeg? ah haba but i bought last week and it was XYZ.... then the trader will rattle on and on about there being no tomatoes in Bauchi and thus the hike.... Then to buy the yams nko? talk less of meat.... those ones are just a dramatic lot, with them lifting the meat with both hands like its a cow and them going on and on and on.....n It's easier to shop at asda or tesco jare. don't know why the cant set up in Nigeria sef and be cheap too LOL Let me go abeg the earlier i start the haggling the berra!!!! Person go still reach house and scrape saki plus pluck ewedu *bigger sighs*

This goodheartedness sef!!!!!!

so yesterday I was fulfilling my one good deed for the day when I offered someone a ride. I knew her from way back she was my senior in secondary school. Ordinarily i'd have driven off and pretended* not to see her but our eyes met and I felt obligated. She got in and said, I cant remember you though your face looks familiar. I said you were my senior in secondary school and we met when you moved into this neighbourhood years back and even showed me your house at the time. she said oooohhhh.... Not sure she still remembered me. she then said 'hey all my mates have bought cars and i'm keeping all my money in the stock exchange' so I smiled and responded with nothing. Then she next asked the usual where do you work etc to which I responded vaguely and next thing she says is do you earn a lot? is your salary 1million naira? I kuku said yes but the way she exclaimed I quickly retorted saying not every month oh I meant per annum. at this point I wished she would get down from the car. she mentioned how fat I am now and asked if I had kids. I said yes. she come say how much do I spend on maintaining my car weekly? ah ah!!!!! I said I didn't know then she said because she's trying to work out costs for if/when she buys a car, that she will also want a driver. wetin concern me with that? she then told me she was saving to relocate..... ........ in the next five years!!!! That she wants to buy property abroad. then she made excuses for her somewhat rough appearance and said oh I look 'neat(cant remember her exact word)' only because I had weaveon fixed that she doesn't fix weave on because it gives her headache.... Mo ma ri ogo oh then she asked why I was living in the local part of our neighbourhood as opposed to in the estate- think ojodu berger versus omole estate. so I said well affordability and she says we can live in a 2 bedroom in the estate as opposed to a bigger place outside. so I explained that I have a help and we have guests frequently, she then said oh I must be "doing well" to have a help. she insisted I gave her my no, I gave her the less frequently used one of course she rang me to ensure i'd have her no.... it'll be saved as do not pick!!!! I hurried her out of my car and drove off without saying bye.... Gooooossssshhhhhh people sef!!!!!!

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...
