I'm beginning (who am i kidding, i've always been) to get addicted to McVitie's Chocolate digestives, it isn't even funny again. I can't believe i was contemplating to order the biscuit (cookies) online for $5 each and shipping is $3.95. Imagine? I wonder how i'll survive without my regular dose, till my uncle gets back from London. Omo, fashie that people'll call me a grubbido, but when i see someone travelling to the UK, I ask them to bring me my biscuits, i don't care if i've a closet full already. This last one i just finished, lasted a whole month, after sharing (as hard as it was) about 6 pieces with my precious little cousins. I remember there was a time i loved Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies, then i was still in Nigeria so i'd practically beg anyone coming to the States to bring back my precious cookies. I've a sweet tooth, but i don't drink sodas or eat chocolate bars.
Anyways, my shadowing in the ER has really opened my eyes. There are diseases in this world o. I thank God everyday for the gift of life, the gift of another day and every little thing in my life, even the not so pleasant experiences. Some people wish for these thiongs i take for granted. Infact, i've realized the futility of life more than i've ever done before. One minute, u're alive, tryna conquer the world the next minute, u're struggling to survive and hoping against all hope that a miracle will happen, even though u may claim not to believe in God.
Prior to my experience, especially in the ER now, i used to think ER docs were real geniuses, as in they knew almost everything. Infact, i thot they were the smartest, being able to respond to situations at the spur of the moment. I shadow the Chief of emergency medicine, very nice guy BTW, the Oga patapata (big boss), and after seeing this particular patient and running all tests imaginable, between me and him, he was like, "Frankly speaking, i don't know what the problem is. We'll try giving him these meds to see if he gets some relief." What does that tell u? Doctors try their best, but God is the ultimate physician that heals.
I'm going to copy Adaure now, with the coded gist part in pidgin. Na so dis 23 yr old pikin come ER, she drink overdose on medicine wey doctor give am. She take 30 pills of a 500mg prescribed tab. She come talk say na 'cos her and her bf get argument na so she feel depressed. Imagine o? Just 'cos of boyfie wey no care about am. When her mama here say she dey hospital, she rush make she come see her pikin, dis yeye pikin come dey abuse mama, dey yell at am. E be like say make i pimp slap (thanx Miguel) the pikin for where she lay. Mama wey care about u rush to ur bedside, boyfie wey u wan kill urself on top of am, no even call talk less of come visit u. She be 1st class mumu.
Anyways, i finally submitted my Big Bros Big Sis application last week. I've had that application for about 2 years now. So unto some gbeborun a.k.a. amebo moves. One of my friends, let's call her P, just met this guy and they've been dating for about 6 months now. The guy's very nice, knows how to treat a lady right and all. He's visited P a couple of times, and even gives her money whenever she's suffering from lackfundaitis. P has never bought him a gift, seeing as she's always broke. Should this be the case?
I'm dry today, i even know it too or maybe those are the withdrawal symptoms from my latest addiction. I think i may have an ear infection. My right ear has been itching for about 2 hours, maybe i should stick Q-tips in it? I've some insect bites on my thighs, from Saturday at the park, it itches too. Lord help me.
