She couldn't spare at least a piece of meat for me.
I'm certain that the majority of us know what the word longa throat means. I should state here that the word in layman's terms simply means to eagerly want something you see others having and it is mostly related to food. For example, someone wants to eat exactly what you're eating because they saw you eating it or vice versa.
A week ago, the elderly woman I call grandma who happens to be the one in charge of where I'm currently staying, had her usual weekend off from work. She goes to her house on Fridays and returns on Mondays every 2 weeks.
As usual, last week she went to her house and got back on Monday, I returned from work to meet her and I welcomed her before going to sort myself out.
I was so famished, it was quite unfortunate that I wasn't so buoyant to feed myself with the things I needed all through that week but I just had to manage what I had.
The unfortunate situation was caused by the pos I had gone to withdraw some money, the transaction got declined and I was debited. Even As I type, it has been 2 weeks now and the money is yet to be reversed. This is by the way.
After having my bath, I went to the kitchen to fix dinner for myself. On opening the fridge, I saw a big bowl of big fried meats. In my mind, I said to myself that "this grandma is enjoying o".
I gave myself hope that the grandma may decide to share a few of the meat with me, I just thought about that within myself because of how the quantity and size of the meat were, also knowing that she is an elderly and may not be able to eat them all.
Before I closed the fridge, I was tempted to tear a small part of the mean but the good spirit in me quickly and gently told me not to do it, and I obliged. I continued with what I was doing in the kitchen and left.
The following day, I checked again, the meat was still there but this grandma hasn't said, "Jessica, come and manage these meats, you can use them for your soup". No, she didn't say that.
The following day, I seriously had my mind on that meat and expected that some would share some of it with me, but I didn't bother asking directly, I didn't want to do that anyways.
I finally decided to just stop checking the bowl in the fridge.
I got back from work as usual on Saturday only to discover that the meat was no longer there, in my mind I was like "Wow! So this grandma finished the meat without giving me at least a piece which wasn't fair at all.
To be honest, I expected that the grandma would have naturally shared some meat with me but I was surprised to see that all was consumed and not even one was spared.
