A Story Illustrating the saying: Make hay while the sun shines by : 12:30 am On May 15, 2018

Write a story, real or imagined, which illustrates the saying: “Make hay while the sun shines”.


Aduke, the toast of the moment. Born with the proverbial silver spoon. She was given everything imaginable for a young child. The sky was the limit. Money and influence, two things necessary to make a man are in her possession without any struggle.

She was the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Adoye, the family was blessed with wealth. It would be considered a shame if they don’t use this abundant wealth to train just a child. In fact, many a time, neghbours and relatives were often bailed out of financial difficulties through their philanthropic gesture. There was  a particular couple in the neighborhood who could not afford to pay their children’s school fees. It was the generous assistance of the Adoyes who responded to their distress call.

One would have thought that with all these opportunities, Aduke will prosper. In addition, her parents have no choice than to make do with what they have. They are indeed ready to  train her to the highest level. The process began with the enrolment into a nursery and primary school in their locality at the age of three. Some dissenting tongues started wagging at first because of the age of the child. The explanation from the Adoyes was that she will get used to the situation.

Aduke graduated from the nursery/primary school to another private secondary school. She was put in a boarding school. This was the rare opportunity given to her on a platter of gold. It was misused. She stopped attending classes altogether. She soon joined the gang of bad girls. All vices which one could think of were her stock-in-trade. She abused all d***s within her reach. It was in the last year in the secondary school that it started to dawn on her that she must do something to pass her examination. Meanwhile, cheating is impossible, hence she decided to try another method.

She consulted some of her mates on her predicament and the solution offered her was to consult a native doctor who will give her a “remembering potion”. She had forgotten that without reading, the potion will not work. She failed her examination. After three unsuccessful attempts, she gave up.
