Mine happened years ago during the yuletide season, she called me to the kitchen to bring my feet for her to measure with a broom stick. After the measurements, she went to Igbudú market, I was super excited knowing that a brand new shoe will follow her back home.
She came back from the market with only my sister's shoes, seeing how my faced changed to a Gambler who lost a ticket of ₦4million because of one game, she said she will take me to the market the next day. We got to Igbudú market very early and went straight to the shoe stand, my mom immediately point to one black shoes that looks like canoe and started exhibiting her bargain prowess. This went on for 30mins as both of them tried to persuade each other.
I heard when the seller was telling my mom that the last price is ₦2000 from an initial selling price of ₦4,500, and in her words; "Madam, your pikin go use this shoe taya."
My mom priced the shoe to ₦800 and was even making it look like she's doing the seller a huge favor by adding extra ₦200 on top. The seller, with a swelled up face, reluctantly agreed and gave the canoe looking shoe to my mom. I felt pity for the seller though, it was as if my mom targeted her that day. We went home and all my homies started calling me "Mr. Canoe" because of the funny looking shoe which I wore for Christmas and New year parading the streets of Warri visiting homes of Uncle's and Aunty's so they can "Do Christmas" for me.
