Full moon and other stories

Hello, fellow bloggers, sorry about not updating, but my life has been very hectic the past few days, lots of sleepless nights,( no be the kain thing wey abuja babe dey do oh!, before una mind go go dat side!)infact, plain chaos and confusion. Anyway, make I give una gist! Yesterday was my friend's graduation, he is graduating from one of the most prestigous universities in the world(thank God he is done cos I was going to shoot myself If I had to hear one more word about his "prestigous" school!) So, the event was to take place in the city hall and afterwards, dinner at a very "high class restaurant", the problem was, I had a course (I have to gist about this course another day, una go die of laughter!)untill 4, and then, I had just 45 mins to make it to the hall cos everybody was to be "seated" at exactly 4:45. I needed a beautiful dress for the event, and friday morning, I was yet to buy such a dress. Here was the plan, buy a dress on the way to the course! My people, the kind of agility I suddenly developed on Friday morning, I was shocked! I never knew I had it in me! So, I wake up friday morning, after another sleepless night,my darling friend Jojo, calls to make sure I don't forget to buy the dress, I shave my legs, wash my hair, clip toe nails, use "body scrub" for extra shine on my legs, find the course books and was out the door. Got to H/M, found the black dress that I had tried on a day before in the wrong size, (Yes, waffy needed to buy one size bigger, sigh, as if I did not have enough problems!) found the right size, paid for it, bought sandwich and Coffee, waited at bus stop. Everything was going smoothly, called my friend Jojo to hear praises of how smart and resourceful I was. Went for the course, left at exactly 4, found a "handicapped" toilet,(at the premises) plenty space to change, I remove jeans, shirt, trainers, put in seperate bag, I wear the beautiful dress, put on my ear rings and wonderful necklace, no time for make-up, smiled at myself and left the toilet, ran four flights of stairs, got outside, time to make another call to Jojo, who was going to sing my praises again. Okay, where the hell is my phone? shit! shit! shit! I left it in the toilet! Ran back upstairs to toilet, phone is gone! Oh Lord!!!!!! I really don't have time for this shit! I pursuade angry looking boy beside the toilet to call my phone.......nothing! Damn! This is not happening! Fuck! Fuck!! Fuck!!! I ran back downstairs, found a suspicious looking cleaner, he swears he hasn't seen my phone. Found an office with serious people, explained problem to them, used their phone, nobody is anwering! Fuck! Now I had a serious decision to make, Jojo is waiting for me in front of the city hall, I am late, I need to get in touch with her.......should I risk it and go there? will she be waiting? or fuck the whole thing and go home? So I decided to go to the city hall anyway! Through out the bus ride, this is all I asked from God:" Please Lord, let Jojo be there and please, by some sick miracle, let her be holding my phone" I said ten "Ave Marias" and felt so sad. All my shit was in that phone! and I really don't want to buy a new phone just because I was careless! Anyway, I get to the city hall, I come down from the bus, shoulders hunched, ready to burst into tears when I see Jojo, it had all been too stressful for Waffy girl, I see Jojo, she's wearing her fancy coat she inherited from her grand ma, she is smiling and waving...........and........there is something in her hand........could it be? Shit! Its my phone! I ran like a mad woman, picked her up and we are laughing so hard from relief! How the hell?? Well, somebody found my phone, called the last number I called, got Jojo, who met up with this wonderful good samaritan and got my phone back! The world is pretty, full of unexpected surprises, wonderful strangers and even more wonderful friends!

To be continued.
