The Day I Will Never Forget

This happened for the second time. I would have taken precautionary measure but was left with no choice for the fact that I had no money to propelled the process of making a change that was necessary.

I watched the rain falling from 2am to 5pm on Saturday the 12th of October, 2019. The flood was so much that the normal rain boots commonly worn was no longer safe. The water level kept raising till it entered all the rooms on ground floor. I hung some things that was on the floor on the wall, while some where flooring in the water, there was nothing absolutely I could do at that moment. I was in that water till that evening, catching cold like a Dove, unable to go out for food, wishing i could fly like a bird, because the flood was so much and terrify, just like a black ocean. 

Two days after we had a very hot sun. On that night another rain fell which almost made my BP raise abnormally, and I had already flee away from home pending when the water goes down.

If money were grass, I wouldn't wait to witness the third time. I would have gotten myself a house in a very safe and well planned environment, that one would not wish every season should be dry season, irrespective of the heat. It was really a terrible experience that I won't forget in a moment.

  • It was a saturday morning, and I went out to buy food stuffs; on my way back I attempted to cross the road when I got hit by a motorcyclist who insulted me for my poor vigilance before crossing. I got minor injuries bit I thank God for my life and I learned a great lesson which everyone is familiar with "Look before you leap".

  • I remember when i was younger, 

    I decided to go swimming in the river close to home with my friends and my sibs. 

    It was all going well, i was at the river bank. Soon they urge me to join them in the water. 

    Brothers and sisters, water almost carry me comot. It was an eye opening day for me. 

    It taught me to never do what others do when i know i can't do it, just to fit in.

  • The day I will never forget is the day I got the chance to travel outside the country for the first time. It was South Africa. I literally thought it was a joke until the day I arrived at the airport in South Africa from Lagos. And trust me I really had so much fun there. It was an experience to never forget

  • The day I will never forget, was the day my roommate fought with me just because I locked the room, and she didn't take her key along with her. She hit me Soo bad, she almost stab me with a knife. We never had any issue before that day. Her action that day really scared me so much that I couldn't even sleep in the room for days, for fear of not being attacked in the middle of the night.

    I've never witnessed that kind of weird behavior before.

  • The day I will never forget was when I was still in secondary school, jss3 to be specific. I was heading home and it began to rain heavily I started running to reach a shop nearby in the process one of my sandals cut lose and it didn't just end there I stepped on a slippery and muddy slope and I did a dance move called " rubber leg". I dislocated my ankle and I couldn't get up from that position. I cried for help and a class mate came to my aid.:)

  • One of the days I can never forget in a hurry, was the day I almost drowned in a swimming pool. Because of my adventurous nature and ignorance that the more further you go, the more the depth of the pool. I struggled in the water for over 5 minutes, until a swimmer caught my attention and came to my rescue.

  • The day i will never forget , 23rd Sept 2015 , i sat down on the chair , lost in thought , thinking of how I'd survive alone ,  with tears dripping down my cheek  death took away my beloved mom,  on that faithful day ,  i couldn't do or say anything,  i watched as people trooped into our house just to sympathies with us. I remembered  walking up to my mom,  called her ,  lifted her hands but she didn't respond,  just then i heard a voice which was familiar (my mom's voice) called my name.....Precious,  i turned but didn't see her behind me,  i looked at her again.....i smiled cause she said her final farewell to me by calling my name....since then i remained strong for her sake....This is the day i will never forget.

  • Uhmmm, the day I'm not likely to forget anytime soon was... the day I saw some of my friends writting a formular at the back of their laminated course form, and well I thought it was a good idea cuz that formular seemed difficult to understand.. so I wrote the formular at the back of my course form too. Then I went in to write my exam... I was done writing and was about to submit when an invigilator walked up to me to heart was beating so fast that it almost left my body. I was close to being suspended from the university at 300l, but thank God I wasn't..that was the first and last time I'll ever try such nonsense again! I thank God I'm a graduate today.

  • The day I will never forget was the day I was warned not to play on a wet tiles. It was on Wednesday that faithful afternoon. closing time to be precise. Heavy rain fell and the whole school was wet. As a small boy that I was , I gather some of my other small friends and decided that we should go on a race on the tiles. They agreed, they all said yes. We started the race, I ran with full speed that I lost control of my legs and fell with my mouth hitting the tiles. I broke my teeth. I lost my smile that day... that the day I will never forget.

  • Mine was years back, the joy of coming home from boarding school for the mid term break was something I always loved.

    That day, mom was on a short leave from work as well. As Dad dropped me home, he went out immediately. Then I went into the house to see my mom resting on the couch ready to welcome me.

    Only for me to see a cute little white puppy starts chasing me around the house, I still had phobia for dogs then.

    I ran every ignoring the words of my mom to stop, which lead to me having a great fall from the staircase

    I don't know how it happened, I found myself injured badly and was rushed to hospital

    Since then, I hated that dog since, although it still lives with us.
