Atinuke Aweda: World Record Dash

Published

 on

“You are getting fat”. “Babes you need to watch it o!” Those were words I started hearing recently. In truth they were right. I had added a few kilos. To mark the end of year festivities in 2014, My sister and I decided to outsource cooking to a caterer. We made a list of food we wanted to have in the house, Chinese rice and sauce, sauté vegetables, ofada stew and egusi soup. I don’t know where the caterer got her recipe for egusi soup from. It was the best I have had in a long time (Mum’s egusi soup matched up in a traditional way). The egusi soup did not have oil covering it like most Yoruba soups, the taste was fantastic and most importantly it had this wide array of cow leg (Bokoto) and fish in it. This egusi soup made me eat poundo yam at midnight on 2 occasions. I mean, it was just the best. Everytime someone just ‘felt like’ eating ‘swallow’, we all knew it was that egusi soup. So I wasn’t so sad that I had put on some weight. The soup made the additional kilos worth the while.

However, imagine running into someone and after exchanging pleasantries, the next set of words are, “Babes you are adding weight o” or “Watch your tummy fat”. I have to smile or laugh and look for an excuse to give. Some of the excuses I give sound like “Don’t worry, I have been indulging of late” or “Blame it on the junk food”. I had to give a good impression. It was beginning to get annoying. So, it was time to shed the weight. Thankfully, the egusi soup had finished.

To kick-off the weight loss session, I decided to go jogging this wonderful Saturday morning. (I don’t know who sent me). My alarm woke me up at 6:30am. I started by jogging within my compound then decided to take it to the street. White sleeveless top, black shorts with white thin stripes by the sides, completed with black running shoes. I had the crisp look. I started with slow walks, feeling the clean Saturday morning fresh air on my face; I picked up my pace and walked faster. I walked briskly from one end of the street to the other. It was an enclosed street so I decided to break into a run. I ran the length of my street once and decided to take my exercise to the neighboring street. (Wrong move, I should have remained on my street). So, here I was enjoying my early morning jogging exercise, the tingling sensation had started in my thighs, it showed the fat had started burning already. (I was told that was what it indicated) Work it out! I thought to myself increasing my pace a little. My street was a long one which curved into another long street so it was easy jogging as I followed the bend. I made the first bend and was about to start the other bend when I saw this group of young men.

There were 5 of them clustered and chatting loudly, I brushed off the initial alarm and continued jogging. I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw why they were all clustered. Here were these 5 young men, 3 of them held chains in their hands the first chain held a Black Rottweiler, the second held a full Breed Cream and White Alsatian and the third held a Black and White Caucasian. Just in case you are wondering, these are dogs. When I say dogs, I mean DOGS! My jogging exercise was over in my head. I just couldn’t move. The Alsatian sensed my presence and turned towards me. I took a step back instinctively. One of the young men noticed and turned to my direction. “It’s fine you can continue your exercise” he said casually. “We take Saturday morning walks with the dogs”. Slowly I started walking. Slowly, not to make any sudden movement that would offend the gods, sorry dogs, which were watching me. One of the guys decided it was the right time to taunt me and made a sudden barking sound; I screamed and broke into a run. That was my offence against the Rottweiler. It jerked so suddenly the owner wasn’t expecting the sudden movement and did not tighten his hold on the chains. It broke free and started running after me.

I heard a clanging sound and screams behind me and turned to see what the noise was about. The dog was in full pursuit with its chain scrapping the floor as it ran forward. Hmmm people, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce had nothing on me at that moment. If it was a 100m dash competition between both of us at that point, she would have eaten the dust from my sprint. I didn’t know my body could generate such speed, I didn’t know my voice could get so loud. I ran. I screamed. I can’t even remember what I was saying. I remember hearing my voice so loud as I ran. I ran!

Dear God, I ran! I kept running and screaming at the top of my lungs for help from any side. Security guards who were previously in their compounds heard my noise and came out to know what was going on. My brain couldn’t register that I should run into one of the compounds; I just kept running and screaming. Finally, one of the security guards motioned for me to run into his compound. He closed the gate immediately I ran in. 3 seconds later the dog was pounding at the gate. Thank God for steel gates. My legs were visibly shaking I couldn’t stand anymore, I sat on the floor, I was out of breath. The occupants of the house came out at the sound of the commotion outside their gate. The security guard explained the situation to them as I struggled to catch my breath. Outside the gate I heard voices as they tried to calm the dog down. “Easy boy, Easy boy” I heard. “Good dog, quiet now”, then the dog would bark again and they would start the calming spell all over again. Finally there was silence at the gate. All the while, no one dared to open the gate to see what was going on outside. The occupants of the house tried to calm me down. The security guard made to open the gate at the silence outside, “Oga where you dey go” I shouted at him. At that point, everyone forgot their sympathy for me and burst into serious laughter. Obviously I didn’t join the laughing group; it still wasn’t funny to me. He opened the gate amidst laughs and announced that the coast was clear.

The walk back to my house was a very long as I held onto the security guard, for assurance. Most people had come to the street and as I walked on, there were comments of sympathy,” Sorry my dear, we have warned those boys not to bring those dogs here again. Hope you were not hurt”. It went on till I got home.

Everyone in my house laughed so hard as I narrated the story. My mum shed tears from laughter. I haven’t gone outside for any form of exercise since then. My compound is big enough for me to jog now.

    *ROTFL* Ma binu my dear. I grew up with dogs but i keep telling pple that i’m scared of dogs apart from mine. Passed an alsatian and its owner on my way to work yesterday, i first stopped looked at the dog and decided to cross to the other side. & all these lekki pple can like to form with their dog ehhhh. Instead of them to go to d sidewalk na road them go balance dey proud as dey get dog…mtschew. Which is quite silly cuz these are guard dogs and shouldn’t always come in contact with humans.

    I feel guilty for laughing SO HARRRRDDDDD!!! Sistehh your description of the event was mad! I could visualise everything mostly cos its happened to me too, bout 20yrs ago though……but I know that feeling of when there’s nothing but hunger and anger between you and a massive mad dog!….funny enough that run that felt like 1000m will feel so much shorter if u try it again sans the element of danger….

    As for this dog matter, seeing as nigerians have started embracing the domesticated animal practise, more widely, its time for guidelines to be put in place o……. your animal cannot be endangering people anyhow….. we were all here when a 4year old boy landed hospital over crazy dog attack some months back, I fear such things will only get worse….. people no dey like hear but there are boundaries for animals…and if they become a threat to health then they need to be put away or put down! If this were to happen to me today, after I get myself, the owner will be hearing from me…and had better sedate that animal or hide it….else I plot its kidnap if nothing appropriate is done, especially if the animal has a history of attacking people…

    March 4, 2015 at 12:48 pm

    Pele dear, I know the feeling. Even your own dog can get crazy sometimes how much more a strangers dog. Just watch what you eat, use the stairs, swim n jog inside house biko. Or even skip.

    lol…couldnt stop laughing. i have had a similar experience when i was young, it was during the holidays, my elder sis and i decided to visit a long lost frend. On getting to the house we met the gate opened, we went in….low and behold their dog had battery water poured on it mistakenly and it was in pains, as soon as it saw us………lawd,it charged walahi it was like a lion barking and barking furiously and the hot pursuit started,my sis and i flew in different directions,i broke an arm on the gate, my sis fell into a nearby gutter……i tot i was going to die that day kai…..the most painful part was the so called frend had parked away.

      Oh my! your experience was so serious and I’m trying to keep my head down because tears are almost streaming down my face from trying hard not to laugh. Broke your arm? Fell into the gutter? Long lost friend don park commot? Lawdy, I’m so sorry.

    Laughing so hard!. Such a vivid narration. Gosh I would have nearly passed out from being out of breath and mortification. Chai! And some of the comments sharing other experiences. 😀 😀 😀 My only somewhat similar experience was when I was about 12 or so, coming back from school, walked into my street only to see two dogs running wildly in my direction. I don’t know why I thought they were after me. If you see the way I dropped my school bag and ran into a neighbour’s compound, thankfully, they were people I knew so I ran into their house and didn’t come out till I was assured the dogs were nowhere to be seen. I really hate random dos just walking about. It is for this same reason that I have not resumed my morning walks cos I recently noticed this pack of 3 obviously stray dogs walking around especially in the mornings around my area scavenging for food and what not. Abeg before they see juicy orobo and think God has sent manna from heaven, I no do abeg.

    LMAO!!! I feel you! This happened to me when I was in LA! I was supposed to go hiking with my friend, and I saw different sizes of dogs, before he showed up. I saw tiny, small, normal and big, and when I saw the big one, which came towards me, well the grass near me…oh did I leap back, and it was a leap because I didn’t want to look bush…lol. And the owner on a phone call said “*insert name* come on”. I was like “better”. My friend even joked that I was going to become Dr. Doolittle, if I stayed there longer. Several occasions I asked people for directions, and when they have a dog, I’m looking at the dog most of the time instead of the person, and they go “it’s a really nice dog”, and I say “okay” but in my head I say “I’m not keen on verifying that claim.” I am wary of dogs I’m not used to.

    I can definitely feel you pain. Happened to me when i was about 6 or 7. Mine ended with the dog biting my leg, me getting a tetanus shot and crying all day long. Glad you had a happier ending.

      March 4, 2015 at 10:33 pm

      Me too… what a foolish individual. It’s like these oyibo yobs that breed staffies like vicious dogs and pose with them on the street when its very clear that they can’t handle the animal if it goes rogue.

      Pet keepers, your animal is your responsibility. YOUR own responsibility. Don’t be toting around notoriously vicious dog as some sort of ego-spurred toy IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO COMPLETELY CONTROL THEM. If only Lagos had an animal control unit, I’d have gone after the silly boy to file a complaint and have his dog taken away.

    Glad you made out okay. it could have been different. Those dogs, particularly rothweilers are particularly vicious. nobody would have been laughing if you got bitten and ended up like the poor child tahat had his brains eaten up by dogs sometime last year.
    There should be a law in place persecuting irresponsible dog owners and the punishment should be serve enough to deter some of the foolishness we see. Now the stupid young man that started it all will do it again, no lesson learnt.

    Yes , I don’t even know you but I am not finding it the least bit funny. maybe becasue I got biten by a dog that way when I was much younger (yes righ in the butt) Probably why one on my butt cheeks looks different who knows. there is a lesson here, someone can easily lose their life or be maimed over something like this

    This is one of the reasons why I dislike dogs, I so dislike dogs. There’s this skinny guy in my area with a dog bigger than him and in my mind I’m like if this dog decides to craze now this man cannot hold the leash on the dog as the dog is way bigger oh. Anytime I see them I just respect myself and cross over with a side eye at the dog, I can’t shout sue or no sue I’m going to be the one with the pain.

    A stray dog almost killed me when I was younger. Then all of a sudden, we had a dog, Sheila, in my Uni day. Very vicious dog that would chase ONLY me. Finally Sheila was put to sleep. Then I get married and hubby decides to buy me a Lhasa Apso just because I saw my friend, Mokut’s own and thought it was cute. He thought a house dog could help me overcome my fear of dogs. It never happened, Ice was sold.

    Then just yesterday, Nony, the other idiot Lhasa Apso in my dad’s house chased me up the stairs, for the umpteenth time. I HATE DOGS!!! And I’m glad the writer didn’t get hurt. It would have really annoyed me.

    I HATE DOGS!!! #TheEnd

Atinuke ooo. when i started reading this article, i didnt know this was the way it was going to go. this is hilarious. im not a fan of dogs. even when i brought dogs home twice, i was scared of them, even as pups. whenever power went out, id withdraw my feet from the floor till the generator came on. biko, stay in your house and be a happy fat cat like me.
