Yes I did.
I know so many children in my days that grew up in front of the television, in the living room. Some played different types of games after school etc.
Did I watch TV and play sometimes? Yes I did but most of my time as a teenager was spent in my parents shop.
After school, I'll branch off to the market. I will do all my school related work under the watchful eyes of my mother. After that, I'll change my dress and eat something. Next is to watch and sell.
My mom used to sell ladies ready made dresses, gowns, shirts and jackets etc. (she still does) at the popular mile 1 market in Portharcourt.
My parents had more than one shop then so, there's always this back and forth movement from one shop to another getting goods to satisfy a customer.
To some neighbors, it was wickedness to bring a special child like me into the busy market. To be honest, a lot of people didn't like it so their tongues wagged.
