I looked out the window nd the clear blue sky fueled my enthusiasm even more, I felt like doing something for a friend today, I just woke up and felt like making the day special and doin something for a friend that we'd both remember and possibly share a laugh over. Another reason why I wanted to do this was cos a few hrs b4 at about 12am a friend had infact done something for me aas well nd I wouldn't forget it for a long time, it was only fair that I carry on the good work and do something really memorable for someone else afterall I am a nice guy. I thought long and hard about whose life I'd affect, who I thought about the perfect candidate and a bunch of my friends came to mind but one stood out, he was such a nice guy, a real good fella nd doing this to him would mean alot to me and he'd probably never forget it ever, I planned it all day, I wanted it to be a surprise, he'd neva see it coming.
I walked into Emeka's room smiling and if he'd been psychic he'd have known it potrayed my intentions as well. I sat down and the following conversation ensued:
Scribbler: Guy how far wetin dey happen?
Emeka: I dey oh! Wats gud? dis one wey u kon see me so shey mosquito chase u comot ur room abi u miss road?
Scribbler:"U see wetin I no like about u 'mekus, I come here peacefully but u wan start war abi? anyway I wan ask u something.

Scribbler: Well my papa just call me 2day tell me sey embassy send am letter, sey dem don select some pple wey get Visa b4 to suggest one person wey we sabi nd we fi' vouch for make dem give dem visa too, I think it's like a raffle draw and na our names comot

Scribbler: "Okay I no know the main stuff yet but u go just write ur info for paper give me and I go call my papa tell am l8r today, stuff like date of birth, state of origin nd all dat"

Emeka:"MY GUYYY!!!! U know sey na u be my guy if anybody fi' be my only guy na u guy!!"
Scribbler: "No whine me jo make I reach girl's hostel I go show ur side l8r. safe!"
Emeka:"U don dey go fin' woman shey notin do u ooh! no dull ur guy sha!!!"
9:32pm, I'd told my friends about what I was up to with Emeka a they seemed eager to know the outcome of it all so I called Emeka into the room where we all were and started giving him the details of the situation
Scribbler: Mekus my guy u know sey I gat ur back
Emeka: Baba no dulling oh! wetin ur papa talk
Scribbler: Well en talk sey no problem sey en go forward your name to embassy very soon, of which no be only u sef but en go call me when en hear anything 4rm them. Shey u grab?
Emeka:Okay oh! Guy u wey no like to answer phone shey u no fi' give am my number at least? I no trust u oh wen it reach phone call side
Scribbler: Guy no worry dis one na serious matter I no fi' fumble, anyway I just talk sey make I tell u wassup, I dey go my room
Emeka: Anyhow na, we go see later.
I stood up to leave the room and my friends were snickering but I pretended not to hear them, As i turned the door handle I glanced back at Emeka with a grin on my face and said "Oh! 'Mekus I forget tell you one other thing.... APRIL FOOLS MAGAAAA!!!!"
You should have seen the look on his face it was priceless, shock, disbelief and anger all in one...the anger was probably what led him to chase me round the hostel with a plank but it was worth it...oh it was worth!!!
