"Who has asked you..." -Who asked you... "...to respond? You have no respect." -"I'm very sorry chief..." -"Padule, you can proceed." "Chief, when I asked why he was cultivating my garden..." -Edith, pass the notebook please. -Which one? -Is the pen there? -It is. -Bring it over here. -Edith, what is seven plus seven? -Fourteen. Whoever gets the most answers right will be rewarded with rice. -You have to raise your hand. -Fourteen. Oh yes... Whoever... you should be raising your hand. Edith, what's twelve plus nine? You should be answering in English. Hey, come on... Twelve. I give you a few minutes for each question... I mean... ...seconds. If you can't answer you lose a point. I'll be counting seconds and you have to raise your hand, ok? Twenty-one. It's twenty-one? -Please raise your hands quickly before I call on you. When I ask a question you should immediately raise your hand, ok? Twenty-two plus twenty-eight? -Edith, can I borrow your calculator? -Do you have to use a calculator? -Of course! -Why don't you just calculate in your head? Fifty. Not fair! -Aunt! -Edith, no... -Raise your hands please. Twelve minus two? It's... It's... -Twelve minus two. -Twelve minus two. Is that one difficult as well? -Edith, leave that one to me. -Ten, ten... -Yes, it's ten. Memory didn't get it. -No! -Yes you! Hundred minus nineteen? -Come on Aunt! -Aunt! -Is that difficult? Hundred minus nineteen is difficult? Ten minus nine, one. Nine minus one, eight. Eighty-one. -Memory! -Memory, two plus three? Ok let's see, wait a minute. -Go and get the abacus. -Ok. -I can't believe this. -Memory, do you seriously need an abacus for this one? -Aunt, the answer is five. -That's not fair, Aunt. -Yes, I got the answer already. -I don't think this requires any calculations. -I can't find my abacus anyway, it's buried way deep. -I've already found the answer. -You still want to use an abacus? -One plus one? -Two. -No! -One. -No! -Three. -It's two, silly. -Aunt, how come you said it wasn't true? -Zero minus zero? Memory? -Zero. You got it. Eighteen plus twelve? Eighteen plus... Three. Thirty. Yes, it's thirty. I got thirty as well. No, Aunt. You see what Memory is doing? She can't sit still. It's... Continue please. One, two, three... -No, it's three. -Aunt, Edith has taken her's off... -Why are you taking yours off? -Because three lands on Edith. If you said four... I mean six. She wants it to land on hers. "Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring! Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring!" "Repeat for the prisoners, the little drum from my village sounds, 'Tido! Tido! Tido!' Yes, I have taken mine off." "Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring! Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring!" "Repeat for the prisoners, the little drum from my village sounds, 'Tido! Tido! Tido!' Yes, I have taken it off." "Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring! Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring!" "Repeat for the prisoners, the little drum from my village sounds, 'Tido! Tido! Tido!'" Nice! -Memory, no, you cheated. -"Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring! Dial pick, pick. Ring! Ring!" "Repeat for the prisoners, the little drum from my village sounds, 'Tido! Tido! Tido!' Yes, I have taken mine off." That's not right! Aunt, she's cheating. It's my turn to remove a hand. She counted mine twice. -Edith you should be the leader. -Yes, Edith it's your turn to lead. "Picking, picking my banana. Sell, sell to gentlemen. Are you too?" I'm sure they'll hear me as far as Jo'burg. "Picking, picking my banana. Sell, sell to gentlemen. Are you too?" "Azakaberabo. This, this, this. This is one, this is two." -"Take the ribbon and bring it to George...". -You've done this one twice. -It's Lynet. -I thought you did it here and then here? -Start all over. -I made a mistake. -Start over. "Picking, picking my bananas. Sell, sell to gentlemen. Are you too?" "Azakaberabo. This, this, this. This is one, this is two." "Take the ribbon and bring it to George. George the bluff, bluff, the bluff." "How many cigarettes does your father smoke in a day?" Don't remove it! -How many cigarettes? -Ok! So I should respond? -Say six. -And then remove my hand? -One, two, three, four, five, six. Yes, you can take it off. No! Aunt, not both of them, just the one. Ok, you are the one watching. "Picking, picking my banana. Sell, sell gentlemen. Are you too?" "Azakaberabo. This, this, this. This is one, this is two." "Take the ribbon and bring it to George. George the bluff, bluff, the bluff." "How many cigarettes does your father smoke in a day?" -Four. -It's you. -Four. -You have to calculate? -No! I'm not! One, two, three, four. I removed this one. No, this one. "Picking, picking my banana. Sell sell to gentlemen. Are you too?" "Azakaberabo. This, this, this. This is one, this is two." "Take the ribbon and bring it to George. George the bluff, bluff, the bluff." "How many cigarettes does your father smoke in a day?" -I thought you were going to count again. -No! Look at... -Four. One, two, three... No! One, two, three. four. No way. You started counting one, two, three. Four lands on me. -I thought you already removed one hand? -Shame on you! Ok. "Picking, picking my banana. Sell, sell to gentlemen. Are you too?" "Azakaberabo. This, this, this. This is one, this is two." "Take the ribbon and bring it to George. George the bluff, bluff, the bluff." "How many cigarettes does your father smoke in a day?" Three. -One, two, three. "Picking, picking my banana..." -No, she's being... "....sell sell to gentlemen..." -"...are you too? Azakaberabo." -Is she really counting? "This, this this, this is one, this is two." "Take the ribbon and bring it to George. George the bluff, bluff, the bluff." "How many cigarettes does your father smoke in a day?" -Say two. -Two. -One, two, it's you! Let's play 'Chipapapa'. Mother of Naomi, come let's play 'Chipapapa'. -Edith, Memory, let's play 'Chipapapa'. -Let's play. Don't you know how to play 'Chipapapa'? Let's keep on playing while we're waiting for Likwatu and the others. -Do 'Amina'. -What? -'Amina.' -Ok, let's do it! -How about we play that other game. -Which one? -What's the name? -'A, B, C, D' -What? -She says 'A, B, C, D' -How does it start? -Wake, wake. Madam, you should sit there. -I thought it requires four, six, eight, ten... --"Another question, another question..." She wants a spot to sit. Just use the chair. -You said it doesn't work with...? -No, just four people. -Really? -Let's do it. -Aunt, how about Naomi's mom? -She'll sit here. -How will she be able to play? I thought you could sit here. -Then how are we going to do it? -We'll end up sitting like this. -You need to... -She should sit like this. Then we do it like this. Yes, you'll be my partner. Memory will partner up with Naomi's mum. Should we stand? Should we stand? Oh, yes! Like this. Are we going to sit at all? Stand. Stand up. -This is how we do it. -Aunt doesn't know. "Wake up! Wake up! Away we go to school." "Another question, another question..." Ok! Now I remember. -I had forgotten. -Let's do it. "Wake! Wake! Wake up so we go to school." -Aunt, we're below. -Are we on top? "Another question, another question, another question..." You're full of it. Aunt, we don't... After doing this, we will do that. Then we'll do this, then start all over, like this... After playing with Edith then I'll do it this side. -Yes! -No, do it on Memory's side. You will be moving hands up and down with Memory; I will be doing the same with Naomi's mom. Then you'll switch to Naomi's mom, then down like that. -We're on top. -"Wake up! Wake up! Away we go to school." "Another question, another question, another question..." Another question, another question, another question..." "A, B, C, D, E, F, G." Oh, it's the alphabet! Aunt, where's the rice? -I was just kidding. You took me seriously? -Aunt, please. Play 'Chigogogo' or 'Chipapapa'. 'Chipapapa' can be played by three people, right? -Three people...? -Just two. -'Chipapapa, Chigogogo' -Ok! Is that so? Yes, that means two, four, six, eight, two, two. -Everyone should be doing... -To the right. -Ok! Come on Edith, let's play 'Chipapapa'. -'Chipapapa.' -Play with Memory first, then me. -Go on. -Yes. "Chipapapapapa, chipapapa." "Chinyunyunyunyunyu, chinyunyunyu." "Chigogogogogo, chigogogo." -"Mother should..." -"Mother should sleep here, father should sleep there, the girl should sleep here." Do it with Memory and Edith. Let's do it. -"Chipapapa..." -Sit properly Edith. -"Chipapapa." "Chinyunyunyunyunyu, chinyunyunyu." "Chigogogogogo, chigogogogo." "Mother should sleep here, father should sleep there, the girl should sleep here, the boy should sleep there." Here... Hey... You can read books. Where is that book you were reading? Aunt, can you pass the blue pen. The notebook, the one you were using. -I mean I want to read the book you were reading. -That one? -Memory, can you grab the book from the... -I'm studying Agriculture. -"Importance..." -Start from here. -Oh my! We'll read in turns. Move over a bit, sit here. Bring my pen over. -"Chiyembekezo, listen.." -"Where are you...?" -"Where are you coming from with those children?"

Memory and Edith continue to read aloud when their mother arrives and begins to quiz them in maths. She offers rice as a reward for the most right answers; however, she is only joking (as Memory discovers later, to her chagrin). The three take a break and play a series of games, including: 'Tido, Tido', 'Picking my banana', 'Chipapapa', and the alphabet game. The girls attempt to outwit one another. Their mother excuses herself, and Edith and Memory return to their homework.
