We are throwing it back to those Home Economics/ Food and Nutrition practicals we did in secondary school. Did you also take part in them?
1. When they ask you to contribute money for practical.
We want to prepare fried rice, salad, fruit juice, and cup cake. If you want to have enough, then contribute better money. Everyone should pay N1,000 each.
2. Or they group you and ask you to bring ingredients from home.
Group A will bring rice and fried rice ingredients; Group B, salad ingredients and mayonnaise; Group C, flour and margarine for cake; Group D, eggs and all other cake ingredients.
3. That time when you have to make tablecloth from this material.
It is always floral. Nothing else.
4. And this lace that you will sew on the edges.
It can even be your exam sef. Junior WAEC runs.
5. Who remembers these stitches?
Because we were all convinced our entire lives would be spent stitching as diligent wives and mothers.
6. Or this skirt that everyone made with one yard of teru fabric and lace.
Did anyone even wear it afterwards sef?
7. After the practical and you people get small portions but the teachers get everything.
Because they are your teachers and there is nothing you can do about it.
8. When your teacher is trying to teach you to cook something they cannot cook.
But it comes out wrong so they blame it on you for not washing your hands well before the practical.
9. You, regretting all the practicals you have wasted your money on.
Make I hear say they wan do another practical. If I join them I should bend.
10. But you like food, so when they say it’s time to contribute money for another practical, you are the first to pay money.
