We were three in the room though the guys were not just roommates, we have been good friends before we gained admission. I Invited them to come and stay with me in sister’s BQ at the quarters. One has been my friend since our pry school days and the other guy we met during one of my church outings.
I don’t like to share personal effects with people no matter the closeness, things like, towel, tooth brush, cloths and most especially bathing soap.
I don’t use sponge since my secondary school days because it increases my pimples at a geometric rate each time I use it. So, each time I take a bath I must use soap . I always make sure I have soap in abundant in my room.
Unfortunately, my other friends hate buying soap but love using soap to bath. I advised them to take a separate soup but just because I do keep mine at the bathroom they would never yield to my advice. I always come out of the bathroom angry every morning after seen different kind of long deterred body hair on my soap. After severally warring, I thought of what to do.
I called my mum at home to help me prepare black soup (ose dudu) in a black container without any label . when I brought the black soap down to school , I called my friends and I gave them some warnings about the soap that it was specially and specifically prepared for me by a spiritualist and the instruction was that I must not use it with anybody . They all said they have heard without any argument.
To my surprise the following morning they all took their bath before me and lo and behold they didn’t even use the old soap that was left in the bathroom ,they all used the new black soap I brought from home . I was so angry ,that I didn’t talk to them for like two weeks . funny enough, all the periods they were using my black soap day and night . when I confronted them about these ,they apologised and said they only wanted to share in the good luck and fortune the soap will bring to me eventually and that if na to pass exams say dem wan pass too , that if na to get money ,they wan get too and if na fine girl juju soap that they equally deserve it . I gentled immediately. Anyway that was the beginning of using black soap in the room because it was cheaper and no need to see hair on soap again.
