Last Wednesday, my mum called...scratch that! The woman flashed me. You get? She called me and allowed my fone to ring for a nanosecond. Thus, I did not have enough time to pick her call.
With courtesy, I called her back, not flashed. Remember my mumcee from her preservation skills.
Yinkuslolo: 'Sup? I just got a missed call from u.
Mum: Oh! I was just flashing you
Yinkuslolo: Haba, I'm at work oh. U this woman! How far?
Mum: I was just greeting you. I also flashed Ruka(my cousin) in Naija and she called me back, we talked for a while.
Yinkuslolo: Ha Mummy! You must have burned her credit and made her feel guilty that she did not pick your call
Mum: ****he ha he ha he ha**(she giggled)
Back in Naija, my high schl declared "GSMs" to be contrabands. Trust hardknock-life boarders, some babes still sneaked in fones. Yinkuslolo cud not afford the consequences of the authorities seizing her janded Nokia fone, so I dint take my fone to skul. Still, I wud borrow a mate's fone and flash my mumcee twice spontaneously. God Bless my mother! She always called me back, even if it's 3 in the AM.
Now, that I am in Yankee, she flashes me all the way from Europe, across the oceans, not even minding the time difference. I dont even know when to take her missed calls seriously. So, I flash her back. Lol! It's a game oh. When we get tired, we start talking for 10 mins+ about nothing to everything.
Presently, I am rocking a fro. A friend told me that I look like I just time-traveled from a disco club in the 80s. As you may guess, when Mumcee saw me virtually, she said that I look old-fashioned and started laffing at moi.
She doesn't know that I'm paying her/home a surprise visit this wkend. I am still thinking about making it a surprise cos some folks are like "Yinkuslolo! u want to make a 10 hr+ flight a surprise visit"
But, I no send. Imma surprise my mumcee's a$ and she will not be able to avoid me, walking around with her, with my old-fashioned hair-do. **muahahaha***

PPS: This is related to the post. Sometime two yrs ago, I was yarning with a Kings College(KC) ex-boy. We were talking about flashing. He told me that one boy in KC flashed his P-man, cos the former was 'broke' and all those boarding skul suffer-head ish. The father flashed him back. See embarassment cos there was a group of boys round, borrowing the same fone. Just remembered, I still laff at the story. ha!
