Hard times

Flash fiction story: Inspired by a conversation I heard, where a man was telling a friend he had no Money by saying, “Pocket dey empty, eye dey red, I don begin dey see my period so i fit chop.”

Hard times.

Her phone had finally stopped ringing. Thirty missed calls. They all kept at it like they had left money in her pocket.

“Honey I’m home”, her husband called out. “How was work?”, she asked and observing how stressed out he looked.

They discussed how everyone kept calling them to beg for money when they had five kids of their own to feed and clothe.

Ada sighed heavily and said, “I’ve told them Throw me up, throw me down, money no dey, alarm dey wear turtleneck as none of my projects don mature. Or dey wan make I sell my organs?”.


I know we all have problems, but that is the main point- that we all have problems and we should be Considerate when asking people if they could assist us with them. I’m not a funny person (sarcastic maybe), but I wrote this because when things get difficult the best medicine is laughter.

So on that note- let’s all be considerate like Voldemort and remember that everyone has a life and is allowed to help if they can and want to.😀
