While visiting some Fulani friends in the TB ward of the hospital, a Fulani friend who was also visiting told me about her tummy troubles! She said that she was experiencing distress and wanted medicine. I told her that sometimes it is best for the first couple days to just let it run its course, and then if it persists to seek help and medication. When describing the situation and showing me exactly where the action was, she said, in Fulfulde of course, something like this, “when I sit quietly I can hear the worms in here talking! and they say “hummmmmmmmmmmm””. SMILE. Iasked her if she really heard them talking, and she was adamant about the worms speaking.
