Lagos na wa oh- A day in the life of a "celebrity"

Hi Everyone,
Woke up this morning, and I said to myself, na wa for this life oh. Having to wake up everyday of your life for the next 50 odd years (yeah I do intend to live till am 80- that's if the stress of Lagos doesnt kill me)....laughs!!!In order to make a living, celeb or no celeb....Okay moving on....

My dedicated cab driver (yes oh, cab driver, although uncoloured since am a "celebrity" and all and coupled with the fact that when I buy my dedicated ride, it has to be "tear rubber car now", isnt that what it is called, so for now the use of a cab would suffice ).. okay enough of the side gist, let me move on to the main story,hmm!!!!! where was I again, oh yeah, the cab driver (Jide) calls me up this morning and the conversation goes thus: "Aunty goodmorin oh, abeg , I no go fit come carry you this morin, as i get small problem for the haus, abeg no vexxy oh.....I say to him, it's okay I will call you in the evening..

He hangs up and for the next 5mins I am totally numb and confused...This call came in at 7.30am and my first appointment if for 9am in Ikoyi and I live at VGC, I say to myself, how the hell am I going to get to Ikoyi for my 9am appt.., Luckily for me, my old man hasnt left for work, so I hurriedly get ready, go up to him, give him my best smile and begin, "Daddy dearest, please I'd like to hitch a ride with you to work, my ride isnt available today... and he replies, "Of course dear", hmm!!! see I still have my charm...

And so the day continued, will give the rest of it later, cause right now am off for another meeting, which starts at 1.30pm, yikes!!!!!! am late....catch ya later.....
