African lady all smiles

SAY ‘THANK YOU’ WITH A SMILE; EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T MEAN IT

I was at the bank over a year ago (Sept 5th, 2019) to complain about something that got me frustrated the previous day. That is to show you I wasn’t excited about visiting the banking hall. On the typically long queue, a beautiful young lady approached each of us, heard our complaints and proceeded to make our reporting smooth.
She got to me, and I replied her good afternoon with my signature smile and a hearty good afternoon. Fast forward to a couple of explanations, she gave me a form to fill. Afterwards, I said my thank you with a smile and waited for my turn to meet the almighty customer service agent.

MASTER EVERY LEVEL – My Ludo Game Experience

There is this Ludo game I play. When I began to play it, I skipped the easy level and set the difficulty at ‘normal’.

I won a lot but I noticed that once in a while, when the computer should have moved its dices in a particular way that would have allowed it to win, it won’t. I always laugh and claimed it was dumb.

WHAT I LEARNT FROM MY BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

Hence, I looked around for alternatives. I saw many things; phones, Bluetooth speakers, power banks, headphones, and the likes, even smart watches… Finally, I settled for a 20,000mph power bank (you can guess why). While I searched though, my desire was aroused to get a Bluetooth speaker, particularly because I saw one type that I liked.

I WANT TO BE THE OLDER LITTLE BOY

I like to think I was reschooled in the ancient history of biological evolution of man; in the way the body and mind instinctively reacts to knowledge and experience.
Few days ago, I was in our basement, on the queue to take a Serology test with other students and school officials inside our lockdown bubble. These officials were university workers and those who work in proximity with the university, one way or the other. Some of them are parents, recently weds with toddlers.
A family came with their boy, who is just about three to four years old. Ol’boy! Was this boy active and restless?! He literally ran from one end of the building to the other, jumping as he ran. This lad would run to his father, make some faces in response to whatever face he makes at him, and would run back. He was everywhere.
