...he came back from a meeting that fateful day and informed his wife that the next meeting of Good Brothers London Branch will be in their house.
It was now his turn to host them. He added that *the people have demanded to eat special OFE ONUGBU for entertainment.*🥘
On the day of the meeting, she went to Nigerian market to purchase the items to make the Onugbu Soup🥘 for the guest who are well respected personalities, highly placed individuals with profound integrity.
She entered the kitchen and started making the food, while the husband went out to get other important items for the meeting. Lo and behold, the people have started arriving.
Just as they have settled down and waiting for entertainment, the wife whispered to the husband who just arrived and was saluting the people's with great excitements with handshake in turns telling them that the food was ready........
Wooow!! He was so excited the more... As the custom demands that food should be presented before everything thing.
The husband then accompanied her to the kitchen, decided to taste the soup before hand.
It happened that this woman just got the Onugbu (bitter leaf) straight from the market without knowing that onugbu must be boiled and squeezed out part of the bitterness very well before putting into the soup. She just sliced them like that and put them directly into the soup. The husband became dumbfounded, not knowing what to do!!
Suddenly, a thought crept to his mind, though he didn't disclose nor say anything to the wife who was believing the cooked soup to be the best, and to her, that's indeed it going to be *"a delicious bitter leaf".*
He said, honey, please could you take up the fufu pot to the dining for the visitors while I assist you to carry the soup pot?
Just as they were approaching the center table, *he intentionally double crossed his legs, and fell down fatally, and the whole soup poured out and wasted to the ground.*
The people started shouting: sorry, sorry sorry oh my God, oh my God. Hope you're OK, no injury, etc, this delicious soup wasted. Oh nooh. Sorry sir.. And helping him to stand up... Eventually, the people ended up taking only the drinks alone and left with joy and showing pity for the man.
However, the wife was very angry shouting at him, you are just a devil, who came to ruin my happiness, look how honoured I could have been before this people, you just wasted my soup. This wicked man.
The man didn't answer nor respond anything to her wife. But was very happy that the wife integrity and respect was wittily, handsomely and smartly rescued. The woman continued to Abuse the husband with razor blade mouth.
Later in the night while they have slept and woke up, the husband quietly said to the wife, *darling, do you really know what happened yesterday, I intentionally poured out that Soup to protect your integrity. The soup could have brought a big Shame to them. And told her the soup was very bitter and no one could have eaten such a bitter Soup. Probably you forgot to wash out the bitter leaf properly before putting it into the soup
There she fell down and started crying and begging the husband for forgiveness... And, the Love for the husband increased the more.
*LESSONS TO LEARN FROM THIS:*
1. Take all possible risk to protect your spouse, you're his or her shield.
2. Women, not all your men action is against your happiness.
3. Men, don't talk back at your angry Wife, her ears are always at her back whenever she is so provoked.
4. Wise men talk quietly and reply to issues when the situation is calm.
MAY YOUR HOME AND FAMILY BE BLESSED TODAY AND ALWAYS.
