Just yesterday, I was about climbing up the stairs to my house when I discovered a ram fastened to an iron rod. The ram stared at me, I did same. Its gaze was so strong on me, even as I went round in circles just to be close enough to the stairs. Precisely as I predicted, it let out this “meeeh” sound in a loud pitch even as I fled upstairs for my life’s sake; imagine that.
It’s so appalling how rude Lagos animals can be. For crying out loud! Science clearly points out that human beings are higher animals; higher implies seniority and that in itself is self-explanatory. Some weeks back, I was tapping joyously on my lappy when a gecko came out of the blue. I’m not done yet, it sensed my presence and gave “side-glances” of which it didn’t scramble away until I sent my flip-flops spinning towards it.
Last month, I and a friend were strolling to a shop to get dinner when a BIG rat dazzled us by using my friend’s leg as a zebra crossing... Of course! She screamed and I laughed so hard, I was almost in tears.
This morning, I walked past a hen and a cock feasting and dishing out judgment to a discarded meal. The duo didn’t do as much as flutter or run off, they continued with their business. Truth be told, animals would always be animals. They have a sense of their own, but they do a very good job of living up to their name...
Till later lurvies ™, I’m too chicken to say more...lol.
