Another week and a bat story

I should say TGIF but it hasn’t been a bad week thanks to the holiday on Monday.

I like...

•My 4inch heels that make me tower over the guys in the office and look the very tall ones in the face without tilting my head up

•Waking up early (I need the practice so when i have my babies I won’t find it difficult to wake up to feed them-right)

•Ordering lunch (having the choice of eating what i want without having to cook it)

•Scoping the blokes in traffic while I drive home (it eases the boredom of the traffic)

•Signing my name at the bottom of every document prepared by me (Yes way cool, you
never know who might see those papers)

•Blogging at lunch break when I have a bit of time to spare

•Seeing my sister come into my office at the end of each work day (the reaction she generates when she walks in breaks the monotony of work; I can leave then after another accomplished day)

•Logging on to the office server and seeing the tons of paperwork that I have to be adept at finding and recreating

•Going up to the solitude of the library to chill a bit maybe catch a 5 min cat nap (kidding)

•Saying goodbye to my mum each morning and seeing the joy in her face that her girls have something to do

I dislike...

•Having my car dented by crazy impatient drivers (I have more dents in the past 2 wks than i have had in the past 1 yr; I went to Oyin Jolayemi yesterday, when I came out from the office I was visiting my fender had been dented and the plastic protecting the fog light is missing- i was livid)

•The sound of my alarm clock at 5:00 am

Not much to complain about


A bat entered the house on Sunday evening, I woke up on Monday to go downstairs and my sister woke up to inform me that I shouldn’t that a bird was in the sitting room. Apparently she was watching TV late and when she put out the lights something swooped around her head. She was totally spooked.

She didn’t say anything, she just came upstairs quietly. If it were me, I know I would wake up the entire street with my screams.

As I made my way downstairs cautiously, I felt something flapping around my head and I looked up to see a stretching black wing I screamed and ran into my mum’s room. She admonished me about screaming around the house for she ‘knew’ was nothing.

My cousin ran away when he saw it too. My mum eventually got it out the window in like 5 min after expressing her ‘disappointment’ in us for not been able to chase out an ordinary bat. Both my sister and cousin had tried to chase it out for several minutes. Where was I you were wondering? In my mum’s room of course!

My irrepressible sister was quiet for the better part of the morning. I resisted the mountainous urge to tease her. I should be kind after all, she was badly shocked. So I was the magnanimous big sister.

I was thinking vampire, I was really tempted to ask if she got bitten by the thing hehehe. Those things are really ugly eeww!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone.

Poor bat that missed road (lol).

I say TGIF cuz it means a day or 2 at home and no traffic facing or waking up too early which I dont like...

How I wish you caught the person who bashed your car...

LusciousRon said...

AWLD: Several people are spooked about those things. Wouldn't mind if they go extinct.

Afrobabe: That would have been my aunt. I can't access your page and Padosh's own. Is it my browser or something?

Bibi: There is nowhere to go o. Tired of moving!

Shona: Thank you dear, slept off my weekend. Blissful!

Exschoonerd: Don't mind LG. I will send the bat her way so she can see it for real. Picture won't do it justice

Standtall: Poor bat? How about little me? It scared the bejesus out of me!

Fridays are the best.

I wish I had caught the fool too if at least to give him a piece of my mind.

LusciousRon said...

I will keep that in mind just in case *winks*

Thank you.

RocNaija said...

Lol.. So did you catch the bugger that dented your car? Or he absconded before you arrived the 'scene of the incident'

Only ever seen bats in movies..

Uhm.. thanks but no thanks..

NaijaBabe said...

BAT??? HA!!!

wordmerchant said...

i woulda screamed too...i as so scared of bats...always think they are going to morph into a man and take a nice juicy bite from my neck.....heheheheh

How u doing?

LusciousRon said...

Rocnaija: The guy absconded. The silly guards posted there couldn't offer me any sensible excuse.

Bat only in movies? Ain't you lucky.

Naijababe: Ha indeed!

Wordmerchant: I am good just cruising. I echo your laugh. Turn into a man? That's a good one.
