My alarm woke me up this morning as usual, although I was having that whimsical feeling in my eyes telling my heart to go back to sleep but I relentlessly oust it off.In a grotesque manner I elevated from my bed walking dramatically like someone about to act a burlesque, I opened my portal and went straight to the bathroom, I had a frigid but a torrid shower but it did not last long because I new I had to be at the kingdom hall to listen to the wedding talk, I skipped breakfast which I know I should not have but the fanciful impulse of my aunt getting married bewildered my heart. I entered my room,clutched my suitcase,picked up my most egregious and outstanding suit, that present moment I thought my suit will be the most shimmering of all,even than that of the groom. I got my apex on tit for this awesome day, so that's the main reason why I thought I must look exceptional,I ironed my clothes opt out some fantastic factors on my dress, I ironed my suit as if I was the groom himself. I came outside to board a taxi but unfortunately, there was no vehicle,since the venue is not too far I took a promenade.The marriage talk was about to finish but that did not bother me because the wedding reception was the exhilarating part I was looking forward to. I made sure I got to the reception before everybody including the couples who are now legally married, I sat torrid in solitude at the middle.The whole episode was not superb for me like I thought it would be, firstly, my suit was not the most shimmering, the music interlude was one of the tedious and monotonous one i've ever experienced. The time is half past two and I've not taking breakfast, the worms in my belly have become ethically withered,"they would have gone slim slim by now" I thought.Not long enough the wedding attendants began the food serving,my nostrils and mouth bewildered of how unctuous the aroma of the food was,but unfortunately for me the food got finished before the attendant could reach where I was, that part of the scene flabbergasted my feelings, not too long I overheard two boys sphinxing that people at the park have protuberant of food to eat because it was cooked there, I stood up instantly without delay, I walked through the park but to my greatest surprise no attendant was there.while standing flummoxingly, I sighted two young ladies,"please have you come in encounter with any of the attendant?" I asked, "they've just gone" she replied,the other staring at me chaotically asked if it was food I needed but I was not audacious enough to say yes,all I did was wiggle my head indicating no. I went back to my sit and i was flustered to see that the others behind me has been served.The time was half past four and i've not eating my breakfast,my stomach was as flat as an a-4 typing paper,i've lost my whole strength and i was not energetic to move around anylonger but i new i had to decide either to approach any of the attendant or to sit still in solitude,fortunately an attendant walked past me and i fang her back and whisper to her,easing away my shyness I said "Abeg i wan die for hear giv me food make i chop". She smiled at me jeeringly and went away,she came back a few minutes later with a drink and a covered plate ,I thanked her enormously but I was extremely astonished when I opened the plate to see a meat pie.
