As a person I love to obverse people, and try to judge their actions and give a meaning to them.
One thing I have observed about children is that the way they speak is 94 percent alike to what they write.
One day, I sat close to a girl of thirteen years, who was writing. I tried my best not to read whatever she was writing. But I could not control myself and I began to read.
It went thus:
“Yesterday, me and brother lekan was going to my mummy shop, he is liking our going, me too.
We reach our shop and I see my mummy and she is Happy, she call me and my brother and she give us fry rice and meet…………”
I tried in all my power not to laugh, I didn’t.
I decided to start up a conversation.
“How are you?”
“Did this thing happen, or is it a joke?”
“No, it is true, me and my brother was going to my mummy shop, and……..”
Not wanting to lose my serious face, I interrupted her, and walked away in laughter.
May God help us, I hope that with my point, I hope been able to convince you that it what you know that you show, and what you say is what you write.
