My son came over to the office from school so I bought him some Akara balls (bean cakes) to enjoy while I rounded up on work for the evening. He got quite hyperactive while eating the Akara and some dropped on the floor.
Mum: Ikem, don’t drop Akara on the floor, eat like a gentleman. Are you a gentleman?
Son: No, I’m not gentleman, I’m Ikemsinachi.
I just had a good laugh first before I started the lecture
Mum: You are a gentleman okay? You eat your food gently.
Son: Okay. I’m a gentleman, I will not eat like a ‘Monkey do’, a ‘Monkey do’ eats banana like this (demonstrates and makes sound awum awum awum.)
Thankfully, we didn’t have more pieces of the Akara fall to the ground.
