I smiled on a short play/joke between a Dr and a patient on an FM radio in Owerri (Imo State) this morning. Words fail me to capture igbonalization which they introduced as they did their thing!
Optometrist: Welcome to my practice.
Patient: Dr, I have a big eye problem.
Optometrist: Tell me, what is the problem with your eyes? They seem good.
Patient: Dr, since this ‘ber season, I cannot see anything in my “wallet”.
Optometrist: Sir, I cannot understand this symptom?
Patient: Dr, my eyes see everything except seeing anything in my wallet.
Optometrist [looks into the wallet]: It seems there is nothing in the wallet.
Patient: Really? I want you to make my eyes to see something therein sharp sharp!
Optometrist: I am a doctor from eyesight, not restoration from lack of money.
Patient: Dr, I hope you are not joking. I came all the way from Orlu to meet you here in Owerri. They said you can cure eye problems – and the one thing I have not seen for a long time is money.
