But not here. lets go back to work.
** After that day’s work, I went home
work continues, till one Friday
Val and I attended one of our co-
workers birthday party in his house.
We went there with Yvonne, on
the party was already on.
We rounded one table and we were
served food and wine.
We started eating and drinking.
Val and Yvonne started dancing while I
was seated down.
There was a lady seated lonely while
others were dancing so
I decided to approach her to know if
she can dance with me since
she was not dancing with anybody.
When I moved closer to her,
I found out,
she was Jummy(the lady I helped to
change her car tyre)
The journey begins…
so sorry for this short episode.
