One Friday afternoon, while waiting for my brother to get off work, I decided to have a late lunch at the Fast-food restaurant opposite his office. After waiting for an hour (I can’t complain, they allowed me to drive his car for weeks), I was on my way to the ladies when I noticed a young couple exercising with their lips, they were passionately engaged that they did not notice passersby and onlookers like me.
30minutes later, the love birds left the restaurant, the girl got into a cab for which the guy brought out his wallet and paid for. Barely 5 minutes later, he waved down a bike and zoomed away. I left the restaurant shortly after this, on getting to the bus-stop at the end of the long street; I saw him trekking then he got into a public bus known as Danfo. This event brought back memories, memories of my secondary school days when a boy will buy 1 Pie and 1 Yogurt for a girl then buy himself 1 Puff-Puff 1 Zobo.
Can you remember any story of where you had to give it all to get someone a gift or take them out (please don’t include family sacrifice)? For me, I battled to remember any, maybe because I try as much as possible not to put people under pressure to impress me or because I have rolled with people who I know will only buy or give what they can truly afford. Personally, I had to save it all to get someone a black pair of jeans when I was a corper (youth service)
Till next time, go an extra mile for that somebody.
