How are ya? I hope you're prepping for a fun weekend. We'll see how mine goes.
So my family and close friends know this thing about me: I can be VERY forgetful. As in, VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY! I forget a lot of things from faces to names (I need to meet some people 3 or 4 times before I recognize them). I forget event dates - I think I've mentioned here that one day, I got my sisters and cousins to get all dressed up and decked out for this Bridal Show in Atlanta, only for us to get there and I had mixed up the dates :p I forget things Cakes tells me - NOT EVERY TIME O! Because he'll now use this admission against me in a future argument. Anyways, why am I saying this and what does this have to do with checking your emails?
*I see a text on my phone about goods for me in Oshodi*
Me: Cakes, see this text message. I think it's spam.
Cakes: No it's not. Give me your phone. (he likes to pretend he's Superman) HELLO?! WHOSE NUMBER ARE YOU TRYING TO REACH? WHERE DID YOU GET THIS NUMBER? DON'T CALL THIS NUMBER AGAIN, DO YOU HEAR ME?!
Me: *rolling eyes because Cakes can be extra sometimes*
*I see the same text again on my phone PLUS 3 missed calls from the number. I respond to their text saying, "Wrong number."*
Me: *called Cakes* Hmm, these my Igbo brothers are still trying me o.
Cakes: I told you! It's 419. They got your number from somewhere.
*I see a missed from the same number AGAIN*
Me: Hmm, Cakes. These guys are really serious. They've called again. See enh, call them back and warn them. Tell them that you know who they are! And if they keep calling my phone and sending me stupid messages, you will call EFCC for them and they'll be arrested for fraud and 419 charges! NONSENSE!
Cakes: *calls them* WHY ARE YOU STILL CALLING THIS PHONE? I'VE ALREADY WARNED YOU BEFORE!
Me: *shouting in the background* WE WILL CALL EFCC FOR YOU!!!!
Cakes: WHAT PACKAGE? WE DID NOT ORDER ANY PACKAGE FROM ANYWHERE! WHICH PACKAGE FROM CHINA?!
Me: *confused* China? OHHHHHHHH!!! WAIT! Did they say China? Oh, I ordered something last week online. :D *hides face*
Cakes: *looks at me like I'm crazy* Oh. My wife forgot she ordered something. She should check her email? Okay, thanks.
Me: *sheepishly looking at Cakes* Erm, remember the lace I ordered? I think that's it. Lemme check my email.
It turns out that the Friday before, I had received an email saying that the package would arrive the next day. OOPS!
I apologize to my Igbo brethren in Oshodi for coming to stupid conclusions instead of checking my email. NDO!
