I was only seven when I embarrassed my Mum in the market.
After the summer holiday, Uncle Nnamdi gave me N3000 and specifically told my mum to buy my school essentials with it.
I insisted I follow her to the market, so I’ll choose my shoes and backpack.
While bargaining with the seller, Mum told her she had come to the market with only N2000 for the backpack, food flask and water bottle. The seller insisted that the last price was N3000, and guess what? My mum said we should walk away. I looked at her in disbelief because I really liked the backpack.
So, I decided to remind her of how much Uncle Nnamdi gave me just in case she’d forgotten.
“Mummy, but we have N3000. Uncle gave me N3000,” I said innocently. The aftermath of that decision is a story for another day.
