Nwoke Ocha = White Man.
My Nwoke Ocha is sick and in the hospital, and since his admission in the hospital, life has just not been the same. I never knew how much I relied on him to get things done until he fell ill. I haven’t seen him all of today. I didn’t see him all of yesterday either. He got admitted on Wednesday, and since then, I have not been myself. The situation is grim, but I have been praying and trusting God to heal him, so that he comes back the same way he left – without the illness, of course. Oh, my Nwoke Ocha, hurry home!! I miss you something wicked.
I know this post is supposed to be about my Nwoke Ocha, but permit me to vent for a minute here: whose bright idea was it for women to menstruate AND be bloated while at it??? Okay, fine, I think I know whose idea it was. But seriously… this is soooo not funny! Ms. Flow came yesterday, and today, I am in a very pissed off mood. I’d like to think I am pissed off because my Nwoke Ocha isn’t feeling well, but I know that is not the real reason.
Here are a few comforting words to describe how I am currently feeling: Angry. Pissed off. Bloated. Uncomfortable. Irritated. Moody. Emotional. Restless. Really, really pissed off.
The only thing that is worse than being pissed off is being pissed off and not even knowing why you’re pissed off. I was just on the phone with Busola and everything was fine until that discomfort under my abdomen started again. All of a sudden, I was about to bite the poor girl’s head off. There is no reason why I should be feeling like my waist is vibrating! And this is not the kind of vibration that comes with a happy ending. Speaking of that vibration, I ought to discover it sometime in my lifetime, no?
*****END OF VENTING*****
So Nwoke Ocha is ill. Did I tell you that already? Perhaps, it’ll help if I stop mentioning the name and just say who the heck he is. He is my white Sony laptop – hence the name (which was given by Mr. Shoes, by the way…). My laptop went off and won’t come on. They think it might be the motherboard. Darn Best Buy people don’t give loaner laptops (even though I even paid $300 insurance on the laptop, and it’s not even a year yet..). Seriously, Best Buy sucks!! And I think that is just one more thing that is pissing me off right now. I’m using mom’s laptop, and it sucks that I have to keep going incognito whenever I’m checking my blog (or visiting any site that has “Verastic” in it.) Wouldn’t want mom finding this site or its many, many relatives. Of course, it’s almost a fool’s dream that mom would never find this site because I blog with my real name.
In less than ten hours, Verastically Speakin will go LIVE. Do tune in. We’ll be talking about women who are in their 30s, accomplished, and single Speaking of that, I think I need to call up my co-hosts and make sure we’re all on the same page. —> And that’s another reason why I’m pissed! Why the heck have I not called till now (the 11th hour)? Anyway, the show will be LIVE in less than ten hours. Don’t miss it. Fear not. I’ll be mighty nice while on air.
