Water Tales....


Been Humming Fela Kuti's "Water no get enemy" all morning....
Lets admit it, Fela was spiritual....whether the "igbo" he was smoking often helped... I wouldn't know But for him to sit down and come up with that line up there....
He definitely had some "Spiritual" help....
Okay so why is the song playing in my head? Not random I assure you....
Let me explain what I mean...

I recently moved house...It is one of the reason I was MIA here...
Was trying to settle in...still doing so by the way...
So yesterday after my work out classes, all pumped up and sweaty, I arrive home and turn on the taps to rinse my hands....
No water...
I was like huh?
Ran to the bathroom...Turn on the tap....nada...
I assumed the security guy was slacking and forgot to turn on the pumping machine...
So I go to him and tell the same...and he goes...Madam there is no water...
I say there is no water how?
He says...Water Corporation never supply water...
I had the WTF look on my face....
Water Corporation ke...This is 2013 for goodness sake...
I haven't heard that shit since I was under 10 years old...
I mean I assume all of Nigeria runs on borehole!!!!!!!
If I could faint from shock I would have...
I mean I am a water baby....I wash my hands a zillion times during the day, I drink tons of water, I go everywhere with water, wet wipes and sanitizer...
That shit was not funny....
And this was about 9pm...and no water stored except drinking water....
Let me just say I got very creative because God knows I will not have slept a wink without a shower from jumping up and down at my Zumba class...
This morning again...and still no water...
Na wa o....
Somebody should have warned me....#landlordwhy...
And you would think Lekki was a haven....Hiss....
Was a hilarious start to the weekend...Now that i am looking back in hindsight only though...

More hilariously, I just lost a bet...
Boss and I were arguing on something and we wagered some money...
I was so sure I was right....and since if he had lost I would have carried the money and ran, I coughed up...
I suppose I was being a good sportsman...or woman in this case....
Never again...and I will scheme on how to retrieve my dough....In the nearest future....
How is everyone's weekend going...
I'm very happy at the weekend ahead...and more importantly Sallah...2 full working days off paid...
Gotta love my Muslim brothers and sisters...These people give us holidays for days....
We get what? 5-6 days of holiday from that angle, add the christian ones and chai....12 days...#sweet
Plans for tonight?
Not sure...as the day progresses, it always becomes clearer....
I would like a mild night though...Wine, soft music and good food...
What shall you lot be getting up to?
Stay Safe....
