See like dat Friday wey rain hammer for Lagos like say Noah flood wan happen again. One family like dat take me for Drop go Alimosho.
From our garage wey dey for near Ikeja under bridge, I take Agege Pen Cinema side, say make we enter Iyana Ipaja, enter Egbeda, den begin dey go for Alimosho.
Una kukuma sabi as Lagos road dey be wen rain fall. Ordinary from Moshalashi Alhaja, go reach Iyana Ipaja, take us like four hour. Na so so water my guonguoro just dey drink for road. Afraid come dey catch me make rain water no carry my guonguoro trowey for gutter.
Di papa, mama and dia man pikin wey I carry no even wan know how I take dey manage dey drive dem pass all di water for road wey plenty pass River Jordan sef. Dem just siddon dia dey argue who go win and who no go win for Saturday election.
Pikin and im mama say na Umbrella go win, papa say na Broom go win. Pikin ask im papa why e talk say na Broom go win. Papa give pikin one dirty slap for face paaaaaa!!! E say why small pikin go ask am dat kind stupid question.

Mama open door, bring out umbrella wey e hold, and begin dey go with pikin inside di rain water. Papa call mama make e wait for am make e follow enter di umbrella. Mama tell am say: “Umbrella ko, rain coat ni”. Mama and pikin continue to dey go dia way.
Papa look me, I look papa. I tell am say make e go down, say I wan turn begin go back to my garage. Papa ask me wetin e go do as di rain still dey fall.

Na im papa take one wicked eye like dat look me tititi, den open door, go down and begin run inside di rain follow im wife and pikin.
