It is Not Just the Internet!



It was a Thursday and I had just left work but I wasn’t in a hurry to get home. Toinlicious and I had confirmed our meet-up for Friday. I got to a bad part of the road and slowed down. For some not-so-unusual reason, I just observed all around me. I saw a car coming from the opposite direction….a “Learner”. I smiled (in my head) and probably thought “biko, just stay in your lane o, no come jam me. Na my lane I dey”. The car ambled beside me, I glanced into the car…..

WAIT a minute!!!!! I recognize that side profile!!! The side profile of the female “learner” driver yakking away at/with her passenger (who I couldn’t see)……The female “learner” driver with her braids swinging all over the place and gesticulating……..That side profile!

 

After getting home, I “dmed” the person who I thought it was. “Hey babe, do you drive? A something something car?” and the response I got was along the lines of “OMG, please don’t tell me I killed something” (Very dramatic child!). A few more messages were exchanged with me clutching my stomach in laughter.

My work here is complete! I have found my calling in life….destiny…I am joining the FBI, CIA or what-not.

The female-learner-driver yakking away with swinging braids was none other than Toinlicious herself. What makes this blog worthy is that I had NEVER seen this lady before. I had only seen a photo of her side profile (with braids covering her face). Why I took special interest in the on-coming “learner”, I still don’t know. How I made the “connections” in such short span of time, I still don’t know either. Why this happened less than 24 hours to our first meet-up, I don’t know. While I’d have loooved (it would have given me immense pleasure) to say “oni owo Olorun ninu”  (there is the hand of God in it), I don’t know that categorically either! LOL

But bottomline was, I had piqued Miss Toin’s interest and there was no way she was going to miss the meet-up on the following day!

And meet, we did!

I had thought that tops, 1.5 hours, we’ld be done…..amean, what would we possibly we talking about?

Boy! Was I wrong?!  We gisted and chatted and gisted some more for almost 4 hours, yet, it was after we had parted ways that I remembered some of topics we should have gisted about!

She came along with a nice surprise too……a twitter handle I had seen in passing a couple of times. When we all first met, I am sure that I murmured “This is sooo weird” about 50 times in 5 minutes.

So, Toin has ranted on and on about a growing nyansh on her blog, yeah?…..I can tell you CATEGORICALLY….shekem! She didn’t even let me see the supposed growing nyansh…..Toinlicious may be real, but her nyansh is catfish (in twitter lingo)!!! 

While her story of the growing ikebe may not be true, the palpable tenacity you sense from her blog is totally her! That “sunshine-ned-ness” you sense from her blog, is totally her!
Let me not even mention the mega-watt-smile! *sigh*

This is for you Toin
She is also a seemingly lovely and perceptive person. We were supposed to have met up since August last year, but I guess she sort of sensed my reluctance until now and never for once pushed it. I am really glad that it worked out the way it has. 

In all, it was an lovely meet-up…..we even witnessed a real life situation of a gentleman being friend-zoned…….we had a good laugh at that situation. Please, take my words with a pinch of salt. It just looked like the brother was getting zoned and we had a good laugh at that possibility and thought.

I doubt that the waitress who attended to us will forget us in a bit.

Wait, why are you people still reading? You are expecting photographs?!!! Be gone, this ain no "Guess the Blogger Series"!!!

By the way, Toin said something about me being in reality "soft and cushy" (her words) while I am tough online....biko nu.....I am tough online?! 10th World Wonder!

Congratulations to the winners of the Nigerian Blog Awards...more power to you, Sisi Yemmie and co.
