I REMEMBER WHEN:
mummy will say to daddy, "please could you help me get some tomatoes on your way back?" and daddy would say "yes" and turn up a few hours later with two baskets of tomatoes that he bought at three times the actual price. the market women loved my dad and his beat up Volvo 240. We always had food in that house
Omo mummy got his head stuck in the buglary proof in our neighbour's flat when we went to sneak and check out what the new tenant had in his flat. I laughed so hard I wet myself
I got stung by a scorpion and daddy said that it was a spider from Kingdom Arachnida. He had the doctorate degree in the house and so many encyclopedias, so we were figured he was right until I started to feel drowsy and sleepy
Our three guava, two cashew and pitanga trees
Mummy wishing she had not waited one more day for her fat paw paw to ripen on the tree cos the next day, it was not there
throwing stones at the masquerade and having the boys chase me down with koboko. I barely made it into the house
Iya oyo's pounded yam and egusi with assorted meat
traveling three hours to get to Ikogosi Warms Spring, just so we could swim
knowing all the mountains and rivers in the country
knowing all the states and capitals.
Omo Mummy getting getting stuck in the guava tree after I told him to climb up and shake the branches. Mummy beat me something serious before she climbed up and brought Omo Mummy down by the collar of his shirt. He was six so he got only a spank. i got a thrashing so bad that it even hurt to fart
The king's market and Oja Okesha that only opened every seventh day
The cathedral with seven schools in its compound
Sweet Alagbon; u know the sweet made from coconut and wrapped in cellophane and tied in knots. looked like a string of stones
Our farm and my small garden where I grew two yams, six ears of corn and some ugu
The pineapples that did not bear fruit till we moved out, six years after they were planted
The onions that daddy planted and made us talk to ( he read somewhere that if you talk to your plants, they grow better) that never grew. I always told anyone that saw him conversing with his plants that he was my father's twin brother from lagos.
Catching Esunsun and frying. Mummy condemned the frying pan after that
Daddy telling Mummy that he was going to bring her a present and then showing up later with some dead wild animal. U should have heard her reaction the day he presented her with a dead python. he told us he'd clean it himself and we would see that it tasted just like fish. he and I sat outside to eat the "fish" and we were not allowed to bring it inside.
