Come & Eat - written by Alfred (a short story for kids)

Once upon a time in a Christian home in the beautiful country called Nigeria, Obinna’s Mum sat at the dinning table with him teaching him good table manners.
One of the things she taught him was that it was polite to say COME & EAT when you are eating and a visitor happens to meet.   Obinna’s Mum told him that it is not as if you really want the person to come and eat with you but it just something you have to say to be polite, nice, and in-line with proper etiquette.
She told him that when you tell them to come and eat, they should smile and politely reply; “No, Thank You I’m Ok!.” Even if they are really hungry.
One day while eating with his Mum, Obinna’s best friend showed up. Obinna told him to come and eat and his friend replied, “Thank You, that’s very kind of you.” Then he actually begins to approach the dinning table to eat Obinna’s food with Obinna.
Obinna’s friend picked up a spare cutlery and just started digging in. To make matters worse he was a very fast eater.
Obinna could only open his mouth and watch in shock. When he regained his wits, he slapped his friend as hard as he could upside his head and said, “You are not actually supposed to come and eat. Didn’t your mother teach you good table manners yet?”
Obinna’s friend replied, “No, I haven’t been told that yet. But I do know that slapping somebody upside their head when they are eating can’t be good table manners either.”


THE END.
