Susy: Mum, why were you late with the cooking of the food?

Bayo: I am so hungry; I can now consume a bowl of rice.

Shelter: Before nko. ( hisses ) Talkative

Bayo: Why are you hissing at me?

Dad: Two of you, stop arguing.

Mum: I was washing your school uniforms; you know you are supposed to wash them.

Susy: Wow, that's good.

Shelter: Hope you didn't wash Bayo's own. ( eyeing him angrily).

Bayo: Dad, Shelter has started again.

Susy: Why do you just like fighting? But Bayo started it first. You lied that you could consume a bowl of rice if you were hungry. You that if you are not hungry, you can eat five bowls of rice. You are now saying rubbish in this place. Get away, liar.

Shelter: Susy, thank you ( the triplet starts fighting)

Dad: If I hear any word, three of you are not eating today. I helped you to buy the new textbooks you asked for.

Bayo: Dad, did you prepare for our birthday? It is coming up next week.

Mum: How do you expect us to tell you what the surprise is?

Dad: Leave them alone.

Mum: ( sighs and then serves the food). Children.

(When they have finished eating, The triplets 

have gone to their various rooms).

Dad: Do you notice that these children have not been appreciative at all?

Mum: I have noticed it; that is what I wanted to tell you. When we bought textbooks for them, I washed their school uniforms.

Dad: We need to do something about it if we do not do it. Who will do it? Let's talk to them about it to them tomorrow.

Mum: (yawns) I am going to sleep, or is there anything to talk about again?

Dad: Nothing except that I'm going to Lagoon city tomorrow.

Mum: Okay.

They go to their bedroom.

Curtain falls.
