I have never been a fan of draw-soup. Why should the process of eating become more grievous than enduring the hunger? What's wrong with the simple process of snatching the ball of fufu (a k a swallow), visiting the soup bowl (where it is baptized by immersion) and then proceeding to deposit the soup-doused ball of fufu in your mouth? That's the simple triangular movement of feeding in Africa, especially with our numerous delicious soup dishes. Fufu - soup - mouth, and back to fufu... Not so with draw-soup! Made from okro, ogbono and the likes, draw-soup comes so elastic and viscous that you have to approach your mouth several times in an attempt to break the elasticity; an ill-timed sport that any genuinely hungry fellow can scarcely afford. My "beef" with draw-soup is not new; it dates way back to my childhood. It usually took an angry mom standing over me, cane in hand, to get me to perform that painful ritual of eating draw-soup. Then wife came... and she liked draw soup! Oh, woman! All I've told you were the thoughts that came to me a few months ago as I sat over a bowl of draw soup, caressing every ball of swallow, chasing the liquid as it rolled down my fingers to the back of my palms. I smiled broadly, almost laughing out loud, when I caught myself grooving draw-soup with such relish! Nobody knew why. Oh, woman! What in the world happened? You happened! Thank you for, without a fight, reconciling me with draw-soup!😁 Happy birthday, Jane!!!
