Hey guys, how was your weekend?
Mine was lit!
My bestie got married!!!
I mean I was too excited ( I still am) Yet to recover from the fun I had at the party. Congratulations to all the new couples from last weekend especially I wish y’all happy married life.
So while we were on the journey, she told me her dad was also going to attend an event in the same town we were headed and I was surprised although I didn’t put much thought to it.
The roads were pretty rough, almost all major routes undergoing repairs. Julius berger,RCC etc The driver was racing and I kept shouting “ejo sir oooo….omo mi shi kere oooo e saanu mi ” loool
Thanks to the almighty God , we got there in one piece.
We decided to put a call through to her dad to let him know we had arrived safely. He started asking questions about the venue and to my surprise he was coming to the same wedding. He ordered her to introduce herself to the groom as his daughter immediately she sees him. I introduced her to the groom later that evening and she relayed the message from her dad.
Lo and behold! we got to know that the groom and my supposed follow come friend are related!
Wow! What a small world. I can’t remember how many times I said that but I said it a lot of times.
She thought she won’t know a soul at the wedding but unknown to her the groom was a relative of hers.
The bride immediately started calling her “sis in law” (in jenifa’s voice)
The world is a very small place I tell you.
Most of us have encountered the “small world” phenomenon – that striking coincidence that emerges while chatting to a stranger at a party when you discover that the two of you have a mutual friend or acquaintance.
Sometime ago I went to Idumota to buy things and after I was done ,getting a bus back home became a problem. As soon as I spotted a bus I struggled like a proper Lagos girl and I got a seat. I noticed a fair lady who was standing with me earlier was still outside. She looked lost coz she wasn’t used to the bus hopping thing so I dropped my bag and told the others that I kept a space for my friend although I didn’t even know her name or who she was at the time. I called her in, she thanked me and sat down.
The following week, I walked into one of the banks and there she was. She was so happy to see me, she ran to me and introduced herself. I really didn’t notice her when I got in, it was the queue that scared me. She helped me with my transactions and in no time I was out of the bank despite the long queues.
It really is a small world darlings.If you ever think you would land in a place where no one knows you at all, It would amaze you to discover that there’s someone that knows someone that knows another someone that knows you.
Let’s endeavor to be good to everyone irrespective of whether they are familiar faces or not. It might not be so easy but we can if we try. You can never tell if you are related to someone or if you have a mutual friend. Even Facebook should teach us something about that. Have you ever had any small world eye opening experience, kindly share with me. Drop a comment below….pretty pleaseeeee
