Eba at work.

It was a bright and sunny Tuesday afternoon, I had analyzed some data inputted from the day before, I was happy with the task I had completed so far but the girl in me was hungry and didn't care.

I had only pulled out my lunch bowl and tossed the great 'eba' into a plate and served my almighty vegetable soup by its side. I just started devouring my fierce lunch when one uncle walked up to me after smiling in amusement for about 42 seconds.

He said "I have never seen anyone eat 'eba' at work" I am like that makes me the first, while I courteously swallowed the third morsel. Uncle further said "Now I can bring 'eba' to work". I quickly said yes and went back to my meal of  'eba'. He stirred for another 31 seconds or so before taking his leave.

Well, this was a good day with 'eba' it was not so the first time I had it outside my house, I must have been in primary 2 (grade 2) or so.  My mom is a caterer and would serve you the meal on her menu. That day my lunch was eba, I was angry, to say the least I felt low that my friends would make fun of me, did they? Ohh yes sure they did, I had brought out my lunch that day so timidly and only deeped my plastic spoon in shallowly to take a small morsel from my 'eba' bowl then touched the soup slightly. I was scared to take it to my mouth. I later closed the food bowl and stayed hungry that day. I told my mum when I got  home to never give me 'eba' or any kind of 'swallow' to school. Did she stop? Not at all. My eba eating skills improved over time and I think I am pro now.

If I was in primary school today would I take eba to school? Ohh YES and I'd eat it with confidence.
