Friends, what a piece a crowd (33) in the city centre yesterday!

Big store, little (10) store, and even di very tiny ones were buzzing! It's back-to-school shopping at its peak.

No wonder the banks and loan sharks (30) have been advertising so much. They know customers are ready to grab, as I don't know weh people find dem deh breed a money fi get di likkle boy (11) and girl (16) dem fi look criss pon September morning. Some breed a money weh people a fork out unbelievable! Mi mumma!

I did some 'mopping up' shopping yesterday and was bright enough fi go ask if I could spin the wheel on the game piece in the big store so I could win a prize. I was politely asked if I had spent $25,000. In one bookstore?

I hope people have money left to pay the light and water (24) bill dem?

Anyway, until we meet again, walk good and no bother fret pon the school money.
