On that faithful day, I had to attend a party. It was my friend’s friend uncle’s birthday, that kind party no dey my jurisdiction though but base on sey I dey high one girl for our area and she happens to be a cousin to my friend’s friend, so that was what stimulated me to attend the party. But unfortunately for me, I wasn’t that prepared but I still wanted to pull that off. Let me give you those reasons why I was not prepared;
I am an I.T student at International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), we resume work at 7:30am and close at 4:30pm…….those international Institute hardly leave time for you to rest except weekend. Secondly, we just moved into that house, and I got home late the previous day coupled with the fact that I have not done any laundry for almost two weeks. I am not as dirty as you are thinking right now, because I know you guys would have started having that impression. RAMSEY IS NOT A DIRTY BOY!! It was because of the preparation to the new house, and you know I only have little time to prepare because of my work place.
Back to the story, it was raining on that day like I said it started very early in the morning, my friend has called me very early that his friend had confirmed that my crush is going to be there. I jump up immediately, went outside and knock on our landlady’s apartment, the door was opened by a pretty damsel, our landlady’s daughter……her name is Foyinsola, I got to know later in the night because that was the first time I am seeing her.
Foyinsi: good morning, can I help you?
Me: yes good morning, I am one of the new tenants at the second apartment.
Foyinsi: oh! Nice meeting you, but hope there is no problem?
Me: not at all, I just wanted to ask if you know a place I can get soap this early morning.
Foyinsi: but it is raining, am afraid you have to wait till the rain stops, but if you are in a hurry I can give you a sachet of detergent.
Me: that would be great.
She went inside and brought out the soap, I collected it but I was so much in a hurry and I couldn’t say ordinary thank you. I could hear her saying THIS ONE IS VERY RUDE O! I ignored her and dashed into my bathroom and started washing my cloth, including the one I planned to wear to the party later in the day, it was an evening event so that gave me the leverage for my cloths to get dried, without knowing the adventure that is going to happen afterwards.0August 9, 2018 at 9:54 am #1243327
I washed the cloth I planned to put on first, it was still raining heavily outside so I hung it inside the bathroom. I finished washing after two hours……this time, the rain has stopped but the weather was still cloudy. I went outside to spread the cloths…..i met my landlady’s daughter and I apologised for what happened earlier and I explained why but excluding the party part. I told her how kind she was but forgot to ask her name.
Afterwards, I went inside to cook rice and stew, this time it was 11:30am, the food was ready by 12:30pm. I was the only one at home because my brother travelled the day before for his MSc project at UNILAG. After I had eaten, I went outside to check my cloths…..they were getting drained but not fully, the thick ones especially the jean trousers. I was relieved so I headed back inside with the aim of drying the one I am to wear to the party with iron because our light is very stable. Immediately I got inside and laid straight on the chair, I slept off.
It was an alarm that woke me up after two hours, was still thinking about going outside to check the cloths when the rain started again, I quickly ran outside and unhanged my cloths. I ironed the one I was to wear to the party as planned and started preparing for the party. It was now 3:45pm, I put a call through to my friend and he said its almost time. The rain was still pouring down heavily so I went to take my bathe, I got dressed but it was still raining outside. I was reminiscing about the girl I was to hunt at the party when my phone started ringing, I picked it up it was my friend calling
My friend: hello guy, how far?
Me: I dey o, I don set but the rain still dey pour heavily o
My friend: yes I know, e dey rain for here too, just manage come cos the girl don arrive o
Me: wa sere!!……I go look for one umbrella now
My friend: ok, will be expecting you….bye!
He hung up, I went inside my bro’s room and I picked up his umbrella, I dashed out not minding the rain collaborated with storm and lightning. The adventure begins!!0August 9, 2018 at 12:13 pm #1243361ⓞⓝⓔⓐⓛ32Member

I stepped out, lock the door but I forgot to do something, you would know as the adventure continues.
Battle between Me, My Umbrella and The Storm
As I stepped outside, still by the roadside waiting for taxi. Suddenly, the storm increases it force, it was like Centrifugal Force…….i lost my umbrella as a result of the increase of the storm, it was carrying my umbrella Centripetally towards a gutter which was full of water, unfortunately for me…..i wasn’t aware. I was chasing the umbrella, while dirty water as a result of the rain was busy staining my black chinos trouser, I was about to fall inside the gutter before a man shouted; GUTTER MA WA NIBE YEN!! (meaning: there is gutter over there), fortunately for me, I still had time to get hold of myself but not too fast to catch my runaway umbrella. That was how I lost the umbrella.
The Taxi Disappointment
I started getting wet because the rain was still falling but has reduced small. I saw a taxi going towards my destination, I entered and gave a sigh then the taxi started moving. I put a call through to my friend to inform him that I am on my way. After 15min, the taxi stopped as a result of empty tank. The driver quickly picked up his jerry-can and started his hunt for fuel, I was getting angry cos I was running late for the party but I kept my calm. About 6min later the driver returned and said he is unable to get fuel so we have to look for another taxi, I did not even say anything, just alighted and started looking for another taxi. My cloth is getting more wet, I had to run to a nearby shop for the rain to stop because I cant afford to get more wet because I have already accepted my fate that I am going to be late for the party.0
