Adapted from story by Khanya Mbethe

I am the choir leader in my school and so I am visiting this fancy school where you get a cooked lunch. I go to the queue to serve myself. The kitchen lady looks at me with her smiley, sexy eyes. I am so hungry that as soon as she gives me the plate I take the spoon and scoop hard in the mashed potatoes thinking that it was a big pot of pap. People look at me as if I am crazy, with potato flying around and a huge pile on my plate. I feel embarrassed as everyone laughs. But then I have to laugh too.
