Doing Good? - II

Today I was driving home after meeting up with a friend and slowed down at a junction to let an okada driver pass by. Scowling fiercely, he angrily waved me to go by. It was as if he was upset that I had even attempted to do something nice and not instead hurtled across his path, as most drivers are wont to do. Maybe I denied him the pleasure of hurling foul-mouthed invectives at the retreating behind of my car or maybe he simply felt that it was his right as an okada driver to experience the thrill(?) of nearly colliding with a speeding car. I haven't got a clue, but promptly made-up my mind to plow down as many okadas as possible as a penance for my 'bad behaviour.'

PS: Just joking, oh! I won't be held accountable for any mysterious okada accidents in the next few days.....

Gotya!!
I finally saw what you look like yesterday. I was reading the Career section of the February issue of True Love magazine and what drew my attention was your natural hair. A bulb lit up in my head and the next thing i did was to check your name and Bingo!!! I had my Eureka moment. I was so excited yesterday, it really felt like I had won something or solved a big mathematical equation........

LOL!!! Maybe that was some other Oreoluwa with natural hair who used to live in Boston....

But yes, that is me. I had to rep for the natural sisters.

Lol! This may be the most sarcastic I have seen you yet. Silly okadaman.

You know!!!! And there I was being nice when I'm normally a rather a impatient driver.

I had to laugh at the podcast- the okada was pronounced well enough but then the woman goes Pee Ess, just joking, OH instead of just joking-o and I had to laugh- thanks for brightening my morning...I hadn't realized you'd moved to oil and gas...E ku gbadun o!

E se o!!

I've been working "in oil and gas" (like we say here) since I moved back home.

I haven't listened to the podcast of this blog, but now I want to.
