discovering of new cultures, meeting new people and off course the girls , the downs
included the terrible foods, the weather and delay on allawee , well , like they say , it is a
service to ones nation . well , service is over and so reality sets in, one must find a way to
survive in this harsh economy , at least that is what those of us that are not very
fortunate to be born with a silver spoon should be thinking about immediately after youth
service . Having lived and schooled in owerri, I knew for a certain that my chances of
getting employed were on the low side because of lack of employment opportunities , no
companies, no infrastructures , no nothing and yet the governor keeps bragging about
how he has transformed imo state, pretender !! The only place I knew I could go to was
lagos to meet my cousin Mekus , even though he is still schooling, he seemed to be

Funmi finally came, after so many months of dating her , she finally agreed to come
know where I live , I don’ t know what ’ s with some girls when it comes to paying a guy a
visit, I don’ t know why it is so hard for them and what I really don ’ t understand is how I
managed to tolerate her , I mean its not like she is the most beautiful girl in the world but
there was something about her , what it is , I don’ t know . I remember meeting her in the
exam hall that day, I attend classes on my own days so I totally don’ t know my course
mates except for those that updates me of happenings in school, we sat on the same
seat for the exam and trust unilag lecturers and their stupid questions, its always like
they want the students to have carry overs, we were asked to answer five questions, I
already did two and half when all my crammings evaporated , I turned to my side and
saw her also looking lost,
Me : hi
Funmi : hi
Me : urhm ! Please how many have you answered?
Funmi : four
Me : four? And you are looking all lost?
Funmi : you won ’ t understand, this number one I read the topic but I don’ t know why I
Me : did you say number one? I have done number one
