Tee, I spent my valentine on d road o. Traveled from lagos to calabar. Hmmm, I saw a true definition of val/love o. The man that washes the buses @ ABC park bought short bread biscuit of 350 naira(guy is about 50years) and gave our driver to give his wife, he also loaded d driver's phone with 100naira airtime. Well, we didn't know till we got to abia wen d lady kept on calling and calling, he stopped in one village there (umudike I think) and dropped the biscuit with her. One young fine babe in her 20s. D girl was so happy and was grinning from ear to ear. The driver now started gisting us, how the husband begged I'm to take. The biscuit to his wife. Some passengers were laughing, that so he didn't buy anything else, even a bottle of wine. The driver defended him, saying it wasn't about the size, but the fact he thought about his wife all the way from lagos. Tee I was so touched o.For me that was a perfect valentine. It wasn't about the size of the gift, but it was the intent.
