Sa ki an fal ou ja sa ou.
What is in your stomach is already yours. In other words, you should not pass up on what you have seen for what you have not seen.
It was midday Sunday and mama was serving that Sunday lunch. Michael, my older brother who would have been going to a party that afternoon said that he would not partake of his lunch but wait to eat at the party. Dada, in his wisdom told Michael that he should eat because, he (Michael) has no idea whether there would be food at the party. Dada explained that ‘Sa ki an fal ou ja sa ou’.
