But wait o, where will you get the money ? Husband: I heard Arakunrin will pay our arrears today. Wife: I always know that man will perform. Please Darling, don’t forget the wristwatch you promised me o. Husband: With all pleasure My Love. 5 hours later, the man arrived home in his car. Pin… Pin… Pin he blared his horn. The woman ran out to meet her husband. Wife: Honey welcome (collecting her husband’s briefcase, leading him into their sitting room). Husband: You are always wonderful. Wife: Where is the mattress and my wristwatch ? Husband: Which mattress ? Abeg gimme my food. I never see alert o, the thing na rumours o. The woman broke down weeping profusely.

Wife: (still weeping) Huuu, I have burnt our mattress, I thought you would buy a new one truly, you know it is no longer good. Husband: (furious, with a changed countenance). What ! You did what ? You must be joking. “Ti mo ba wa e”. You will go back to your father’s house today if this is true. You burnt the 500,000 naira my contribution money I hid in the mattress for us to roof our house. Wife: Yepa ! You mean you have such huge amount in this house and you didn’t tell me ? Husband: If I get you today, I will show you who I am.
