As they drove, there was a beep from Richard’s phone, which was in his breast pocket and he made as if to retrieve it.

“What do you think you’re doing?” Nene asked, a tinge of fear in her voice.  “Don’t tell me you’re going to check your phone while you’re driving?”

“You’ve predicted my future by asking a question.  O Great One, if you already knew, then why did you still ask?” Richard asked in a playful voice.  Nene was not smiling.

“To knock some sense into your head, obviously.”

“Are you saying I’m senseless?” Read More

The following day, Nene woke up still full of hope.  The day was pregnant with the promise of great things, and she basked in it.  She savored that warm, delightful feeling, which envelopes a person rising from sweet sleep, that sweet nothingness that entices the waker to slip back under the covers and continue dreaming.  But a noise reached her ears, forcing her to abandon any desire to go back to sleep.  It was the same noise that had woken her up.

“Papa, please … please … I’m sorry.  I won’t do it again,” a voice pleaded. Read More

“Na so e dey start,” she muttered to herself.  “From ‘Hello’ to ‘I no do again.’  That’s how the story ends.”

She promptly emptied the dustbin and was about to enter the house when she heard a man’s voice yelling “Hello.”  It was the same guy.  He had decided to vocalize his greeting this time, but Nene’s reaction was the same.  She simply ignored him and went inside. Read More

TGIF Means …

I saw this in a department store and chuckled to myself.  I thought “TGIF” meant “Thank God It’s Friday,” but apparently, it can mean more than one thing.
