THE LOCUM DIARIES (30)

Day 30... So I got into the hospital today to meet practically all the staff gathered at the reception, gisting , laughing. ‘It is obvious, Oga is not around’ I thought as I greeted them. As I was about heading to my office, one of the nurses said, ‘Doctor, before you go in, you have … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (30)

Day 29... I got to the bus stop and again there was no vehicle! ‘Which kain meeting these people dey get?’ I wondered. I was running late for work. After waiting some more minutes with no ‘keke’ in view, I started hailing ‘okadas’. ‘Pako how much’ I asked one, ‘200 Naira’ he replied, ‘Na pako … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (29)

Day 28... These days when I come into office between 5 & 6pm, I come in with ear phones plugged in tightly, phone firmly clutched and after I drop my bag, I go outside, to the front of the hospital entrance and like a Landlord (or security officer if you like), I sit down and … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (28)

Day 27... Tuesdays are like my busiest days, from jumping out in the morning to get to the radio station early enough to ‘show prep’, to dozing off in ‘Nigerian go-slow’ all afternoon to landing in the hospital in the evenings all worn out!

I have spent the last few days playing solitaire at work, yes you read right, SOLITAIRE! At … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (25)

Day 24... ‘I just said let me put my head on the pillow, that’s how I ended up waking up by 6.20pm!’. I was literally running to the bus-stop. What was supposed to be light rest after a long day turned out to be a marathon sleep session. Luckily traffic wasn’t as bad as other … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (24)

Day 23... Back to work! I was enjoying my ‘enforced’ holiday so much that I didn’t feel like resuming.
