Almost as embarrassing were the times I fell in the gutter twice in primary school.
One evening I followed my aunt to a house four houses away from mine and while she was standing outside talking to whoever she came to see, I decided to occupy myself with spinning around and around. Remember that game where you spin yourself around till you get dizzy – yes, that one. Genius that I was, I chose a spot by the very dirty gutter to do my spinning, My aunt warned me to stop o, that I would fall in the gutter but what did she know? Make she park well jare! B-)
So there I was spinning and next thing I know I was floating in the air – there was no ground under my feet, that was how I found myself in the gutter o, brethrens, they plucked me out and hosed me down and then we commenced the short journey home with my aunt berating me the whole time and every kid in my street witnessing my shame, Kai. It was a bad day nwanem! 😥
The second gutter episode was no fault of mine.
So there I was walking home after a long school day with my sister, we were just a few steps away from school, looking clean and fine with my nice uniform, school bag and all, minding my business when one son of the devil – well, he was only a kid like me, running to god-knows-where runs into my and knocks me into the gutter. The most annoying part was that the evil little monster just yelled “sorry” over his shoulder and DIDN’T STOP!
My sister was confused and didn’t know whether to chase after the evil little devil of a boy or to help me out of the gutter. Trust kids, everyone paused their journey home to stare at me like I was an exhibit at the museum. My sister with the help of one lady cleaned me up as best they could and we continued the journey home with me in my wet uniform, wet shoes and school bag. It was terrible!:'(
If I were to run into that misfortunate boy today, I would still land him a headspinner of a slap on his insensitive face *breathing hard in anger .*:O:O
I like to think that almost everyone has a gutter story to tell (make e nor be only me, biko) So, don’t be shy, tell me everything!:-D
I just read a ‘most embarrassing moments’ post – celebrity edition, on a blog and reading their experiences made me recall the absolute most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me, but in my defence, I was just following instructions 🙂 you know I respect my elders. O:-)
So this fine day my cousin that would eat you out of house and home if you gave her a chance visited, She eats plate after plate after plate with short breaks in-between, till your pot is literally almost empty. No joke!
Seeing as there was not much in the pot that day a ‘family member’ told me to hide the pot soon after she arrived. So I carried the pot to my room and hid it under the bed – it seemed a great hiding spot at the time.
Anyway, I felt hungry after a while and hurried to the pot with the intention of quickly eating a little, next thing I know, my door flies open and she catches me with my hand right on the pot, dragging it out from under the bed with my plate and spoon beside me, Time froze as we stared at each other for a moment, she left my room without saying a word and proceeded to my mum’s room to chat with her before leaving, I was so embarrassed I didn’t leave my room till she had gone home and then i threw a huge tantrum, warning my ‘instructor’ never to include me in any future schemes and to do her own dirty work herself. My mum was laughing her head off the whole time. I still cringe when I recall that day and I picture my cousin calling all my extended family members home and abroad to tell them my crime. I felt like throwing up that whole day and couldn’t look her in the eye for a long time. Lord!! :-!
It was terrible, nwanem.
Your turn, don’t be shy!:-)
Happy new month everyone, The year is fast coming to an end and I can almost smell Christmas in the air, I am excited! How has your year been so far? Great? That’s good and if it has not gone so well, that’s fine too.
It’s a little hard to hear but progress takes time sometimes and that’s ok as long as you do not stop trying. A lot can change between now and the end of December.
May we find favour in the sight of the good Lord this November, Amen.
If you need a little-pick-me-up, here are some verses that will remind you of God’s faithfulness.
Psalm 91 vs 14
Because he loves me, “says the Lord, “i will rescue him, I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation”.
Psalm 91: 11-12
He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways ; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike you foot against a stone.
John 16 vs 33
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Psalm 121 vs 3
He will not let your foot slip, He who watches over you will not slumber.
John 16 vs 23
My father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Happy new month good people!!
