Hurricane Yaba

Okay well it wasn't actually a hurricane and Yaba isnt actually anybody's name...but thats the name it was given sha...


First it was fire...today it was water...i woke up this morning tried to drop a book that was getting wet on my window sill on the floor cause it was raining and i felt water....there was no light..took my fone,and what did i see...water everywhere...above my ankle..getting into my suitcase...my shoes....food stuffs...at first i thought i left the tap open but later found out it was the rain and most rooms were also flooded.woke my roomie up to see the damage and save her laptop and stuff....outside was a different case...the water was almost reaching our knees and it was filled with dirt and all sort of rubbish...outside the compound on a couple of streets was a whole different thing...It all felt like a dream i swear....meanwhile i cant find my Ipod....Ipod i just bought i want to cry so bad.























a


As at 3pm we still hadnt eaten anything...i cant compare it to what happened during hurricane Katrina oh...but i think i felt a teensy weensy bit of what they felt...as in i ate one pack of indomie...raw....as in people started looking tasty after a while...we went inside the water to search for food..anything..agege bread sef...nothing!...no food...no water....gosh and everywhere smelt of diesel and kerosine because a keg of kerosine was emptied and some diesel...and all the rubbish and gunk...ew!! i cant believe i entered that water..just dont hope i dont break out with something....the drainage system is pretty messed up and something has to be done about it so it doesnt occur again.

Yep!! am back to give my scathing comment as usual.
Well i didn't read Laideh babbling nonsense, but am sure my comment would have been the same.

However this little read, is to let her know that I'm still around.
