Excursion. (into the badlands)
Mrs Sharon: we have new student in this class……….. Come and introduce yourself don’t be shy. (referring to me) .
I walk into the class.
Me: hi everyone, my name is Michael Peters, and I’m happy to meet you all.
Mrs Sharon : you are welcome Michael…. Go and have your sit.
I saw a vacant sit beside the boy that show me the principal office this morning, i went and sit.
Me:hi….. thanks again for showing me the principal office
Josh: you are welcome
We were still talking when a man in his late thirties walked inside.
Good morning class…….. He said
Good morning sir……. We chorused.
Immediately he notice me he told me to stand up and introduce myself…. which i did quickly… And he told me to sit.
He said is name is mr Philip our biology teacher. Then he resume teaching, in our last class we talked about diffusion and osmosis ,and I’ve given you the definition of diffusion and i told you to look for the definition of osmosis…. then he asked.
Mr Phillips : who can define OSMOSIS ? .
Nobody raise up his/her hand except for 1 girl and i recognize the girl… She is the one that insulted me for bumping into her this morning.
Though i know the answer but i don’t like forming because from my previous school they call me bookworm or A Nerd.
Josh: you see that fine girl that raised her hand.
Me: yh…. She is the one that insulted me this morning .
Josh: Her name is joy, she brilliant die……..She always represent our school in many competition and she always came between 1st -3rd position, all the teachers like her…………… But she have one problem.
What problem…… I asked
Josh: she’s too proud, she gets angry over little thing and she can insult anybody , thats why she doesn’t have any friends.
(With what josh just said, it’s because of her brilliance that make her to be this rude and mannerless ………the only way to bring such people down is to challenge them academically)
Joy: osmosis is the movement of a solvent through a semipermeable membrane into a solution of higher solute concentration that tends to equalize the concentrations of solute on the two sides .
Mr Phillips : wow …..always the best that’s good ………..who else want to try .
(i need to challenge her so i raise my hand).
Mr Phillips : yes hmmmm…… what’s that your name again) .
Me: Michael sir
Mr Phillips : Ok Michael
Me: Osmosis is the spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a selectively permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides. It may also be used to describe a physical process in which any solvent moves across a selectively permeable membrane (permeable to the solvent, but not the solute) separating two solutions of different concentrations.
Mr Phillip : Holy Christ Jesus……. who are you…….please class clap 4 him.
(after they finish clapping)
He continue teaching and kept throwing loads of questions…. It turns to competition between me and Joy and she prove to be formidable opponent.
Mr Phillips : wow i love today’s class…… Joy looks like you got yourself a challenger.
After mr Philip left the class, joy have been giving me a deadly look…. If look can kill am very sure i would’ve been dead but i ignored her.
This goes on for joy and i for other lectures,if she explain a question, i will make sure i elaborate more… If she list 4 example….. I Will list 6 or 7 unless there’s non. Am very sure she hates me more by now.
I went home and immediately i got home , i met no one at home and am very hungry, i checked the kitchen, the cupboard, the fridge, i see nothing to eat and i don’t how to cook. Then somethingcame into my mind.
(one day i overheard my classmates saying that cooking concursion rice is very simple that after you’ve put rice ,that you will put every other ingredients inside).
So i decided to try making concursion rice ……i put water…..and added rice… I checked the cupboard 4 palm oil and i add it …..one onion i divide into four then i put it………. after adding everything i covered it went into my room to change my clothe.
After few minutes i rush down to the kitchen to check my food……… Then i open it i said woow food i ready and then my mom enter the kitchen.
Mom: mike what are you doing?
Me: am cooking concursion rice
Mom:you ……..mike……cooking…… Concursion rice , who teach you cause i know i didn’t?.
Me: dont worry about that joor
Mom: Ok ooo does is it taste good ??
Me : i was about tasting it when you came in.
Then i take a small quantity and taste it….. 😢😩 i almost cry because everything is wrong with the food….. Too bitter… Too much salt…. Too much maggi….. Too spicy.
Mom: so how is it?
Me: i cannot even say anything .
(i guess my mom understand my silence then she said ….don’t worry i bought bread while coming i will just fry egg ).
Since that day i never know that cooking can that hard…… Mothers you dey try oooo.
