Above was the EXACT transcript of my chat with a friend just yesterday night. For other reasons, I slept at 3.35am this morning. Woke up a few hours later and took off to work. Departed for a work related training at Walter Carrington at 9.15am with the mind of loading my phone with credit so I could check my mail while in class...but I forgot
On returning to work in the evening, I sat down to quickly go through my mails before leaving for home when the subject of aa particular mail caught my attention,
"Application for a Canadian visa - BXXXXXXXXX".
My heart literarily skipped a beat! ;)I opened the mail, read it in seconds...then collapsed the mail when I realised I was in the office. I did not believe it! I opened it again...then read slowly...then quickly...looking for the much expected lines...I spotted it..."...* Please complete medical examinations as per the instructions which were posted to you on 29-03-2012.

I minimized it...again!
THEN I SCREAMED!!!!!!!
I ran out of the office...then a colleague ran after me....getting near the door, I stopped, turned round and hugged him. What happened, what happened?, he asked. Wait...wait...then I called my wife..."We got MR!" She too screamed!!!!It was a long one. Then I called IG...no response, composed sms and sent to a couple of Naija forumites! The my phone started ringing...I think the rest is history!!!!
Indeed the glory belongs to God, no man on earth should give glory to himself....We will all rejoice in Jesus name! Our time is now...and yes...YOU ARE NEXT! You know yourself so I say congrats to you!
NB: I wonder what I will write after landing!
