Friends, mi admire people who work hard for dem food (20). Yes, man, particularly in this time when you have so many beggars (9), like the young boys (11) who siddung pon di corner a dig out dem hand middle every day.

On the other end of the spectrum you have those who are trying, despite their disabilities. One old lady (36) was telling me 'bout dis one-arm (1) man (23) who she see with a big bungle a broom pon him head (12) walking the neighbourhood looking sales (25).

I asked mi very good, old lady friend (36) and somewhat rake psychic what numbers she see in the crystal ball this week. She send mi back some pictures showing about twenty (20) roast breadfruit, chicken (28), some healthy-looking piece a hog (7) jerking, and a big pot a curry goat (35), rice and peas, and manish water.

So, the numbers two and twenty-seven (2, 27) for fire, and twenty (20) for the food are also safe bets. But mi gonna go a step further and throw in the number eight (8), cause the pot dem did really big. Plus, she was at a grave digging, so number eight look even better. More time.
