Market Serenade

 In Billie

Djenabou and I went to the market this morning.  A very spirited fish seller made me grin.  She stood dancing and singing a song.  Djenabou asked me if I knew what she sang.  Of course not; her song was in Pular:  “White lady come buy fish.  No chicken, no beef.  Buy my fish, fish for the white man!”  While I did not buy her fish, my presence gave her a song to sing and everyone else something to smile about.

    Hey Billie,
    This story made me laugh out loud! I’ve told it to many friends here. If you see the singing lady again tell her that her song made me and my friends smile too!
