  • What Time Is It By Your Watch?

    That question above is one that is frequently asked in my corner of this globe. It is one question that is also taken for granted by lots of people (both the“askers” and the “askeeS” alike).

    I did not really think much about that until recently when I accidentally ran into two friends who were discussing in Pidgin English.

    One of the two on suddenly realizing that time seems to be far spent, decided to ask the other friend what time it is and here is what transpired:

    Friend One: Abeg, how many O’Clock for your watch now?

    Friend Two (realizing that his wrist-watch had suddenly stopped working):

    Omo, na many O’Clock O!

     

    Friends, Isn’t Pidgin English a wonderful language?
