Man: Do you have a husband? (In Wolof)
Me: Yes, I have a husband. (In Wolof)
Man: Where is he?
Me: He's in Canada.
Man: In Canada?
Man: So he's not here.
Me: No. Actually, I have four husbands in Canada.
(Fits of laughter from the women nearby.)
Man: But they're not here?
Me: No, they're not here.
Man: So you need a Gambian husband!
Me: I know. I have four of those too. Four Canadian husbands and four Gambian husbands. Eight husbands!
Man: Four Gambian husbands?
Me: Yes. Four.
Man: I'll be your fifth.
Me: No, I'm only allowed to have four Gambian husbands.
Man: That's true. Then minus one and add me.
Me: I don't know if I can do that. I'll have to ask my husbands.
Man: But they'll say no!
Me: You're right. And Gambian women must obey their husbands.
Man: It's true. And they'll say no! So don't ask them. Just minus one and add me!
Me: We will see. I'll have to talk to them... Mangee dem.
