driving to work

too lazy to blog right now.

Driving to the office this morning on the
interstate, I looked over to my left and
there was a woman in her brand new
Mercedes doing 65 miles per hour.
With her face up next to her rear view mirror
putting on her makeup!
I looked away for a couple seconds and when
I looked back she was halfway over in my
lane, still working on that damn makeup!!
Well, I'm a man, but this sight scared me so badly,
I dropped my electric razor, which knocked the donut
out my other hand, then while trying to straighten
out the car using my knee, it knocked my cell phone
away from my ear which fell into the coffee between
my legs, splashed and burned my crotch, ruined the
damn phone and disconnected a very important call!!

A Joke at my expense.

A friend sent this joke to me via email this evening,

A Nursery 1 student in a danfo bus from school was reciting the days lesson at school, it went thus: if my father is a cock and my mother a hen, i will be a chick if my father is a lion and my mother a lioness, i will be a cob if my father is a king and my mother a queen, i will be a prince etc, etc. The bus driver was irritated by the boys 'noise', he shouted at the boy asking him to shut up. But the boy continued. Then the driver shouted; What of if your father is an 'armed robber' and your mother an 'ashawo' (prostitute) , what will you be? The boy replied; I will be a 'Danfo Driver'

Danfo Driver goes to school

This year has been going great for me and am thankful to God.
Though there a lot of work and orisirisi to it, compounded of course with the Lagos madness but its all good. Talking about Lagos, Lagos is gradually....yes, gradually changing, from a danfo driver I can tell you so, well let me start from my angle- transport.

The Bus Rapid transit buses have not fully rolled out but some are on the road already, new pedestrian bridges are been built, and they are properly done with roof covers,(Note: one on anthony/oshodi expressway and Onipanu/Ikorodu road) the Ozumba Mbadiwe road is fab, almost completed,(I wish the same could be done to Ikorodu road) , the molue is going to be gradually phased out,though I wonder what will happen to existing driver of these molues? Will they be employed by state Government to drive the Brt Buses or some other forms of employment will be created for them?
And yes, the markets,it is a lot of work to get them clean but there is continuing effort, but I miss my Tejuosho market which got burnt last December,I mean it is one of best markets on the mainland, which had everything! I hope it can built back to something better than what existed before, but in the mean time The traders should be relocated to a proper place, some have found(or properly given) shops along the NTA road in Tejuosho but can that place contain them all? And where can the danfo driver shop without having to go all the way to Lagos Island?

Ok... back to the title of this post, Danfo driver is taking a course to help her improve on her work and get a better understanding of it, I started this month,the course is 10 days in a month which will run for four months and it is 9am-5pm and there is only one cute boy in my class...(sigh), yes I know am there to learn and all, but good looking men could speed up the learning process :-),
well am enjoying school,I love my lecturers and classmates and I love lunch time though I see only the option of rice and salad and strangely I don't talk much in class, well it only been two days this week, so lets see how it goes.

I know the month of February is long gone, but I had a very different valentine from last year, it was good. And yes I have not had any severe menstrual pain since then,thanks to my Gynie,I recommend her any day. So that all for now with the danfo driver,I'll try to be consistent with my blog rounds now, I miss Babaalaye,Vera and boorish, I hope they come and update soon.

The danfo driver goes about now with a tape recorder and camera, to capture the sights and sounds of Lagos, but men! to take pictures on the road is not easy. Any body got some tips for a female danfo driver driver, walking around Lagos with a camera, to get good pictures?

orisirisi- meaning:Different things.
