Red Hot Pepper
Age Range: 5 – 9 years
“Koliko sakora!” some of her friends teased her as she opened her food bowl. Dzifa had eaten fried potatoes with hot pepper for lunch for the past four days. Not that she did not like the food. She did but there was no fish to eat the meal with. She had no other option, but to eat the food, just as it was.
Soon, break was over and lessons resumed.
“What is that in your dress?” Miss Lucy enquired.
“Please teacher, it is red hot pepper” Dzifa replied.
The whole class burst into laughter.
