If you're like me that's always struggling to lose weight you'd relate to certain things.
Like, this morning on my way to attend a seminar at The Muson Centre, I stopped to grab breakfast at a fastfood restaurant in Victoria Island. I asked for one set of toast and a cup of coffee. I looked at the array of food right before my eyes, from fried yams to akara to boiled yams to porridge yams to scrambled eggs to omelet to chinese fried rice to rice and curry sauce to sausages to pancakes to cream donuts to cakes and on and on, and I looked down at my plain toast and black coffee without sugar. I sighed.
Then this chic beside me, looking like nwanunu, looking like a tiny bird with brittle bones, had her tray handed to her. 3 portions of toast with eggs inside, then omelet, then a bowl of porridge, then a mug of milo with 3 satchets of milk and four sugar cubes and then orange juice, and water.
No, literally, hot tears slid down my eyes.
When I was going to eat I had to walk by her table to check if she had company. She was alone. Dear lord.
I went and sat and watched her massacre her food with delicate fingers while I ate my toast which strangely felt like cardboard in my mouth.
I guess all I'm saying is life is unfair. Life is very unfair.
I feel this a few other times too. Like with that my friend who never ever attended lectures, turtorials, joined discussion classes, bought books or even handouts, and spent each semester going from Enugu to Lagos to Abuja to Accra to Jo'burg to Dubai and would come back a week to exams and spend the next few days sleeping then the day before the exams she asks to "glance" through your handouts and notes, then sleeps off shortly... You enter the exam hall feeling sorry for her but you guys come out and you're pensive but she's very excited. She's excited because she had fun, the heffer actually HAD FUN writing the exams! And once it all ends she's going from the exam hall to the airport and you don't hear from her for another week or two. Then results comes out and while you and your discussion group members are struggling with Bs, Cs, Ds, she's the only person you know cleared her papers with many A's. Truly life is unfair. 😂😂
I know we all have our own "life is unfair" moments. Share yours with me, let's laugh together.
