Cheers To The Weekend

When I got out of my house today at ten minutes to 9am, I wasn't sure what my day was going to be like. While walking to work, the way the sun felt on my skin, the way the wind twirled around me and the whistling of the birds got me feeling good about myself. I swear I felt a bit like Pocahontas. I didn't see a humming bird but I saw a butterfly. Too bad the wind wasn't strong or sensible enough to gather up some leaves as it twirled around me.

Looks like its going to be a good weekend. Plus there's a public holiday on Monday! Thank God! If I was to have a sound track to my life, right now, it would be Rihanna's Cheers (Drink to that).

Life's too short to be sittin' round miserable
People gon' talk whether you doing bad or good, yeah
Got a drink on my mind and my mind on my money, yeah
Looking so bomb, gonna find me a honey
Got my Ray-Bans on and I'm feelin' hella cool tonight, yeah!!!

Cheers to the 'freaking weekend!

Doritos Inventor Passes On

Are there ever times something random happens and you say thank you Jesus for the person who invented ____________ or you say thank you God for creating ____________ (fill in the blank space). Stop thinking I'm random. I always thank God for creating the person who invented electricity, the mobile phone, hand dryer and plastic.

Last night, while eating dinner; chocolate ice cream, Pringles and Doritos, I thanked God for creating their inventors.

This morning, I found out, the man who invented the Doritos chipsArch West had passed. In my mind, I was like seriously, some one created the Doritos chips O_O. (To myself: Noooo, it fell from the sky). The inventor died at the age of 97.

Archibald Clark West
08-09-1914 - 26-09-2011 RIP
Arch came up with the idea for the chip in 1961, after he went to a snack hut that was selling fried tortilla chips while on vacation with his family in Mexico.

According to a statement from his family, his body is to be cremated and placed in an urn. And they plan on tossing Doritos Chips in before they put the dirt over the urn.

Oh well, I'll be making home made corn chips when I get home tonight. Will let you know how it goes.

Fear is an unpleasant sensation caused by nearness of danger or pain.

It seemed like an ordinary morning, but I didn’t know it wasn’t. It was six thirty in the morning, the darkness of night had started to fade away and somewhere around the corner, the demon called “FEAR” was lurking.

I was on my way to school. My brother happened to be driving. Everything seemed to be going on normally; the temperature was dropping, the sun was somewhere getting ready to rise, on morning radio, the presenters were getting ready to increase their pace. We were on the third mainland bridge when all of a sudden, the rain started coming down hard on the windscreen like it was going to shatter it. The unexpected change in weather had us startled. As we tried to figure out what was going on, that’s when the demon used that opportunity to enter the car.

Next thing we knew, we couldn’t see a thing. It was like we were in the middle of a mist. My brother was so shocked, even though the headlights of the car were fully on, we couldn’t see a thing. I then pushed the hazard light button. All the other cars seemed to do the same.  That way cars moved tailing after one another, it seemed like we were moving against the laws of kinetics and gravity.

I felt it as Fear took my brother and I ransom. It seemed like time froze and my mind began to wonder as my heart beat fast. All the time in my mind, I was thinking so many things, firstly I thought this is just like a scene in the movie ‘Day After Tomorrow’, can it be real? Then I started thinking could this be global warming at work? Has it caused a catastrophic shift in our planet’s climate? Is there going to be an ice storm next? Did the meteorologist in the country know about this? Do we even have climatologist in Nigeria?

As I thought all this, at the same time I was praying asking God to send us his Angels to help us sail through. Suddenly I felt it (Fear) slip out of the car and as we reached the end of the bridge, the weather cleared. Thanking God, I thought to myself I definitely never want to forget this day because it was the scariest day of my life.

The world's longest cross-sea bridge located in China.
