I was on my way home from work the other day when I saw Gen, a former college classmate of mine. She was one of my closest classmates so naturally I was excited to see her. I was waving and smiling like crazy at her, but she acted like she never even noticed me.

I was wondering why she was ignoring me. I mean, we never had a fight or anything. So I called out her name.

“GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!!!”

It was when I realized that the person I was waving and smiling and screaming at wasn’t my friend.

I screamed. At Mega Mall. In the middle of a crowd. And was ignored.

To make matters worse, there was another girl in the crowd named “Gen”. She looked at me like I was some kind of freak. Well, that was before she and her whole barkada burst out laughing. At me.

Nice going, Ade. Reeeeal smooth.
