I’ll just dive into this one and list them.
- When people are late or make me run late because I’m waiting for them. I just can’t stand that or people who are late, it’s just the way my mom raised me. She woke us up early in the morning to make sure we don’t run late for anything. And that, in turn, made me get annoyed when people were late. I understand African Time but sometimes we have to right on time, not sometimes but always.
- People who don’t cover their mouths when they cough. My goodness, how does one even begin to do such a thing? Who raised you child? Ewww.
- When groups of people take up the entire side of the street. MOVE!!! It’s like they’re the only ones walking there, like where the heck should we walk then huh?!?!
And those are my Pet Peeves.
Hmm, my life in 7 years…I see myself having changed careers. Doing what I fell for, not my wife, but the job I fell hard for. I see myself advancing well as a human, man, a husband and Lover maybe.
Buuuuut…things don’t really go as we planned them or want them to go. They rather go the way God sees the best fit for us. I could plan these beautiful years and just for them to go in a different direction. Whatever my life may turn out to be in 7 years, I’ll accept it as it is. I hope it’s a life I’ll enjoy living and which will help me help others too in turn, whether it’s my family and friends or even strangers.
So my life in 7 years is will be what God will make it be, I’ll work on it too.
My commute, sigh, well it’s somewhat of a mission because of traffic but it’s also adventurous to me. I drive to work while singing along to my random music and not conversing with anyone. I drive around looking at people wondering if they too do all these weird things I do while driving, I find myself making sound effects when I see someone about to bump into someone. Or, or when I turn at a sharp curve. I make this weird sound effect as though I’m playing a racing car game.
On my commute and from work I sometimes stop at the traffic light/jam and converse with the people selling things by the road or even the homeless people too. Sometimes I just roll up my window because I don’t know what to say to them or I don’t have anything to give to them.
It’s often eye opening when you drive around and see all these different faces and facial expressions. You see happy faces, emotionless face and sometimes sad ones, and I usually wish I could do something about it. Try to comfort them or whatever, but being the person that I am, I tend to look away because I don’t know how that person would take me if I just whipped out a paper and wrote: “Everything is going to be okay”. I just end up saying those words in my heart hoping they’ll feel them.
“Al Dente” is one hell of a phrase I could never understand and it somewhat makes me laugh. Don’t get me wrong I know how to cook my pasta, it always comes out perfectly. Never too soft nor too hard, it’s always “Al Dente”, hehe. “Al Dente” aka “Firm but tender” almost sounds like an oxymoron to me.
Another phrase that makes me laugh is “I/Let me call you right back” reason being 90% of the times we never really call back the people we tell we’ll call right back. Heck, we totally forget that we said we’ll back, or we never really meant to call them back.
Hehe, well those are two phrases that make me laugh.
