Greetings of the evening!
It was an okay day today. You know the kind that just goes on with no major hiccups and all.
I decided to take a Keke NAPEP on Awolowo Road from Falomo to Sweet Sensation. Cheaper than a bike and I did not want to wear any of those "Shady afro wreaking" helmets the bike men give you. So o, I got into the back seat (last available seat) and the journey began. The driver of the Keke NAPEP started to swerve all over the place. I was wondering if it was "just my imagination ..". I kept quiet. More swerving. Ah! I decided to inquire of the driver.
"Excuse me Sir?"
I leaned closer. Perhaps he did not hear me.
More silence. Now other passengers were using side eye to look at me.
"Why are you driving like this now? Swerving from left to right? Wetin sef?"
The driver did not answer immidiately. I was convinced he was contemplating his poor road behaviour and was preparing an apology.
"Emm ... if you commot your BIG HAIR Madam, I go fit see wetin dey my rear view mirror."
The silence was mine.
I leaned back. I could see the sudden surge in texting or 'pinging' by other passengers.
"I beg, stop here for me please." I instructed the "Mr I am so witty" driver.
I paid my fare, put one leg out of the vehicle and pushed the driver's head as I said "Idiot! You dey craze"
Quickly moving out of the way, I looked to see him grinning.
"Bye! Bye! Our afro Queen!" he yelled as he drove off still swerving left and right.
Do those stupid vehicles even have rear view mirrors? *Hiiiiiiiiiissing*
