I DEY VEX


So I have this neighbor who goes on and on about how the aroma of my cooking puts her nasal cavity and salivary glands on overdrive.

Well, in the spirit of good neighborliness, I promised to send her samples of Naija delicacies any time I make some.

I don't give my word if i can't put my money where my mouth is.

So i decided to welcome and introduce her to Naija cuisine with a bowl of fresh jollof rice and peppered goat meat.

It was late o but i still dashed across the street to drop her a bowl. I

met her 1st son, told him it was for his mum. He said she went to the Grocery store but he would hand it over upon her return.

I thanked him and cat walked home.
From my window, i saw when she drove in. Just a few minutes after my delivery.

1 day passed, 2 days, 3 days, 5 days, 1 week...no word from her.

Well, after 2 weeks we bumped into each other at another neighbor's baby shower.
Casually she said, 'Oh! I'm sorry i haven't come to see you. But i want you to know i had only 1 spoon of that rice. The kids ate it all'

Jus laidat?

Wee you keep kwayet!!

Whose fault?

Mine?

Just imagine!

Not just that she did not come over to let me know she received my precious award winning jollof rice, she also kept the tupperware i sent it with!

Who does that?

Ya erichaa rice, taa anu na okpukpu ewu, takoo efere m iikwa?

Mgbo! Mgbo! Mgbo! Piafukwagi ishi there!

I narrowed my eyes, looked at her, bit my lower lip and said nothing.

So make i cook another one come give you?

Fa fa faaaa foul!

Okwaalagi.

Long throat wound you there.

END OF RANT!
