March!!!!

My friend, the one who moved from kongi, Bodija to Kaduna(rolls eye) called me the other day. She’s probably reading this and might kill me. I saw her very well in Kongi each time I travelled down but haven’t set eyes on her in KD for once.

.
“So I read that you moved to Garki”
Moved to Garki ke? Not as in a residential move biko. It’s more work.

.
While life was very less engaging in Asokoro, while friends were few and food very scarce, Garki is the exact opposite of all these.

.
Garki is where good food is but you get sometimes busy that you forget to eat. Garki is where everyone knows the daughter of whom you are. It is the place where you listen to ‘cases’ and note the date of adjournment. It is the place where you only dream of brownish wigs and blackish gowns if you mistakenly doze off. It is the place where you take turns with ‘mama’ putting on the A/C and switching it off when the cold enters your bone.

.
Garki is where you pay attention to the court journalists especially the beautiful lady from News Agency of Nigeria and feed them with every snippet of info.
Sighs#
But Garki is a place where you have to be extra careful in order to avoid OBF2. Since my lord’s chamber is close to the library, he stays in the library all day.

.

But honestly, I am glad to be out of Asokoro. I was there yesterday. Yeah, I laughed and hugged, saw my good friends and some not so good friends..those ones who specialise in throwing jabs. Especially when they saw OBF2 on my trail. I hope they get to read this. I am tired of them.

.

I made only one special friend in Asokoro(two actually), the one that everyone envied our closeness. She’s very close to my heart. I was lucky to be found by the second cool friend just few weeks before I left so, our friendship is majorly on the phone. She’s just as special too.

.
One of the Lords died on Monday and so, all the chambers are empty and deserted. Activity is zero. So I stayed home today. And slept through the early hours of the morning.
Crazy activity would resume on Monday and I need all the rest I can get.

.
Right now, I am so hungry. I went to check the nylon where I kept the new banana that OBF2 gave me on Monday. I met them still unripe.

.

.
March is a special month. There will be some giveaways in commemoration of the blogversary. I want to give it to some of the ghost readers of this blog. Anyghost reader that would say hello in the comment box stands a chance of winning a copy.
Any old reader stands a chance of winning one if they would share the picture of my book cover on Facebook, twitter and instagram and tag me to it. anyone with the highest ‘likes’ win a copy.
I heard Dominos Pizza has moved to Ahmadu Bello Way in Garki here, just beside Slot. I don’t want to go and confirm it yet. The luxury of being driven to and fro everyday prevents me from moving around on my own. Haven’t been to Rita Lori or Apo Bridge in a long while. Me and dad had a eating joint close to Rita Lori Hotels.

I titled this article “life in Garki” before but after realising that OBF2 is now on my friends list and might just click on it, I changed the topic…..I don’t want my banana career to end justlaikdat.. #justsaying#

Happy new month everyone. March is always a good month. Stay positive
