I could already see them as I came round the bend. Policemen on my side of the road and road safety men on the opposite side. I mentally assured myself there was nothing to worry about as my papers were complete.I was still like 5 car lengths away when he started waiving me to the side of the road. He came to the passengers side of the car and indicated I take my side window further down.
Me: “Good afternoon bros” (with a smile)
OC: “Good afternoon” (returned smile). How is work?”
Me: “We dey try. Change is changing all of us.”
OC: “You don’t look like change is affecting you o”
“Film trick”. I laughed.
“Are you with your tinted permit?” (Back to business. The weekend needs “lubricating”).
Me: “Yes.” I made to release my seat belt so I could reach into my glove box.
OC: “Don’t worry. Where is my weekend gift?” (The smile is back)
Me: “Even me I am looking for weekend gift” (I laughed).
OC: “You can go. Don’t worry. God go provide.”
Me: “Amen o.”
