I was locking my door as I tried to hurry up for my
lectures when I met the only nightmare that prowls
at day. I thought I have been smart by dodging for
over 2 weeks now but my cup was filled up. My landlady walked up to me, fuming with anger.
Me: Madam you scared me off my feet o. I don run
She cut me off b4 I could finish my story.
Landlady: Shut up! Mechie onu gi osiso. Wally or
wetin you de call ursef. E don teh wen I begin to de look 4 u. You think sey yu get brain? Aaah, smart
don jam smarty.
I pretended not to know what she was talking

I feigned angry.
Me: Madam, excuse me. Don’t you think I have the right to talk? You just came to my door and began

evening make we chop fish nii.
Landlady: I go de wait 4 you
I left for my lecture, wondering how I will pay my
