Tough year to be a Nigerian isn't it? With the petrol subsidy removal and the hike in price of goods and services!
On to witty blog news..... Hafsat, my friend that won't leave me alone was 25 on 7th January. We had a late lunch at this beautiful, little steak restaurant, Orela on Awolowo road, Ikoyi to celebrate with her. As expected, it was a little crowd of some unfamiliar faces so we decided to take turns to introduce ourselves and say very briefly how long we have been friends with Hafsat.
3 of us had known Hafsat the longest, since our QC days and were giggling away when this guy (someone already whispered to us he was from a wealthy family) brought our mini party to an abrupt pause. His girlfriend had done a poor job socializing so he decided to help her make a few friends and started out with us, her old school mates!
"Oh really, you went to QC? I thought you looked oddly familiar! When did you graduate? What arm were you in? Were you are boarder or day girl? What house were you in?" The questions kept pouring in, boyfriend felt accomplished and left girlfriend to handle her new found stardom which she seemed to be enjoying till her tongue slipped! She answered one of our questions so wrongly, we knew she had to be lying! But she wasn't going down without a fight, argued for a few minutes till she finally gave up and refused to answer any further questions. Boyfriend looked traumatized! Way to find out his chic had been lying about her secondary education! She just put him through the most mortifying experience ever plus he was got an inkling she was just after his money! He stormed out fuming while we had the laugh of our lives!Us girls sha! Was that lie really necessary or even smart?? Oh well....we've got to put human hair on our heads!
