“Good morning sir” she greeted
“Goooood….. Morrrning” I replied without looking up, stressing the words
slowly with rhythm to how I was typing.
“Have your sit” I said as I finally look up
I don’t know why but I feel comfortable and my heartbeat didn’t increase or
reduce this time around, maybe it’s cos I feel superior because I’m in my
office though,or maybe because I just finished talking to my wife..yeah,

She sat gently on the nearest of the two chairs on the other side of my
table, wow, she’s in her best of manners, well I’m not surprised shaa,

One of the ladies I just interviewed few minutes was forming accent, ah , I
was shocked, I was laughing so hard inside of me as Ijebu was ‘smelling and

“I hope you’ll bring Ayo to our company and our Ola will not finish as your
