EKYAMAGERO

THE SURPRISE

 Deyize yakwata essimu okudamu okukubira kasitoma we.

Daisy picked up the telephone and tried to get through to her client again.

 Kasitoma we yali Fulanka Bakyini, nanyini wa sitowa ze ebyamasanyalaze. Yamukolera omulimu gwanaku biri era yali tanasasula.

Her client, a certain Frank Baccini, who had a warehouse of electrical goods, had not paid for her two days' work.

 Deyizi yali asobode okuzula munne wa Bakyini atesigikika weyaberanga era kati yali yesunga Kyeke okugifunna.

Daisy had managed to discover where Mr. Baccini's dishonest partner was now living and was anxiously expecting her cheque.

 Deyizi yali atandiise okulowooza ngi ne kasitooma we naye teyesigikka.

Daisy was beginning to think that her client was dishonest too.

 “Halo, nkuyambe ntya?” bweyawulira edoboozi ekoowu.

A very bored "Hello, can I help you?" was the reply at the other end.

 Lyali lya muwala muto, kalani was Fulanka Bakyini.

It was a young woman's voice, Frank Baccini's secretary.

 “Nsaba kwogera ko ne Mwami Bakyini.”

"I'd like to speak to Mr. Baccini, please."

 “Ononsoyiwa, Mw. Bakyini talimu kibuga”

"Sorry, Mr. Baccini is out of town."

 “Naye akomawo ddi” Deyizi yalemerakko

"But when is he coming back?" insisted Daisy.

 “Ononsoyiwa naye simanyi ddi!”

"I'm afraid I don't know."

 “Omun’g’gambira nti Deyize Hamilitoni yakubye nga amwetaga mangu”

"Will you tell him Daisy Hamilton telephoned and would like to talk to him urgently."

 “Kale- Kansubiire.” Bweyadamu

"Well - yes, I suppose so," was the completely unconcerned reply.

 Gunno, gwali mulundi gwa kumi Deyize nga ayogera nomuwala ono mu wiiki biiri. Naye Fulanka Bakyini yali tanamudamu

This was the tenth telephone conversation Daisy had had in two weeks with this young woman, but Frank Baccini hadn't got in touch with her yet.

 Mubusungu, Deyize yasalawo okugenda kusitowa ya Bakyini alaabe oba jali.

Daisy was furious and decided to go to Mr. Baccini's warehouse to see if he was there.

 Bweyatuuka nakonkonna ku yafeesi

When she arrived, she knocked on the office door.

 Kalani wa Bakyini yayogera “Yingiira” mukalobozi akakoowu.

Mr. Baccini's secretary said in her monotonous voice: "Come in."

 “nkubye esimu emirundi mingi. Bampita Deyize Hamiltoni.”

"I've telephoned many times - my name is Daisy Hamilton."

 “ehe? Nga oyagala kwoyogera nani?” bweyamudamu nga tamutulidde yadde.

"Really? Who did you want to speak to?" asked the young woman without even glancing at Daisy.

 “Ngagala kwogera na Mw. Bakyini”

"I want to speak to Mr. Baccini," replied Daisy.

Yali atandiise okukyamuka.

She was becoming even more aggressive.

 “Ononsoyiwa taliwo” bweyamudamu, neyeyongera okusoma magazine ye.

"I'm afraid he's not here," said the secretary in her usual monotonous way and went on reading her magazine.

 “Mbikooye!” Deyize yawogana, nakuba olujji nga bwafuluma.

Daisy shouted "Enough is enough!" and banged the door closed.

 Deyize yabula okwabiika.

Daisy felt rather depressed.

“ Mayi ekyokukola” “kangende ewa Luyigi ndye kutooke”

"I know what I'll do," she thought, "I'll stop off at Luigi's for a nice banana split."

 Deyize yayagalanga nnyo okugenda ewa Luyigi omuyitale okwogeramu.

Daisy liked sitting in Luigi's ice-cream parlour and having a little chat with the owner, a positive-thinking Italian.

 Bweyali ayamumbuka amadaala okugenda mu yafesi ye, Deyize yawulira nga abantu abakooye.

As Daisy walked up the stairs to her office she felt a little less sore about human beings.

 Aba akyussa engatto bwati, waliwo eyakonkona nga bwayingira.

Just as Daisy was changing her shoes to a more comfortable pair, someone knocked on the door and walked in.

 Yali mukozi nga ali mu Ovulo.

It was a workman in overalls.

 “Nyabo, yegwe Mukyala Deyize Hamilitoni? Bino tubiteeke wa?” yabuuza nga bwasonga ku bokisi enenne biri.

"Excuse me miss - are you Miss Daisy Hamilton? Where shall we put these?" pointing to two large boxes on the landing.

 “Yye, yenze Deyize Hamilitoni, naye obyo obijjeewa, kkyi ekiri omwo?”

"Yes, I am Daisy Hamilton but what have you got there - what's in those boxes?"

 “Ebokisi enene mulimu Firiji, ata katoni mulimu Ekyuma ekifumba Kapukyino. Walonze bulungi, eno enkola yabwombi yamulembe nnyo.”

"The big one is a fridge and the smaller one is a cappuccino-making machine. You've chosen well, you know, these are the best makes around."

 “Sinatumyako yadde nekimmu!” yamuwoganila.

"I haven't ordered either of these," exclaimed Daisy.

 “Naye lino silinyalyo kubaluwa yebintu!” 

"But it's your name on the delivery note!" insisted the workman.

 “Bisasule. Gwe mbulira bubulizi wakubissa.”

"It's all paid for - just tell me where to put them."

 Deyize yakumpi biggaana nalaba Fulanka Bakyini nga ayingiira.

Daisy was just about to refuse the goods when she saw Frank Baccini coming in the door, too.

 “Mky. Hamilitoni, Nsoyiwwa, okubulako.”

"Miss Hamilton. I'm very sorry I haven't been in touch.

 “Kandowooze tekikunyiize, naye nalaba mu Yafeesi yo temuli Firiji, ate kanno akumma akakkola Kapukyino kamulembe.”

"I do hope you don't mind but I had noticed you didn't have a fridge in your office and... this cappuccino-making machine is a little speciality.

 “ngasinerabira. Kyeke yo yinno, webaale nnyo, ntaddemu akasiimo.”

"Oh, by the way here is your cheque for the excellent work you did, with a little extra for your expenses."

 Fulanka Bakyini yalaba Deyize nga asanyusse nnyo yayongereza ko nti.

Frank Baccini saw Daisy was astonished and added:

“Kandowooze Kalani wange yakukubirako, mbadde mu Hanemuunu nga siliwo wiki biiri”

"My secretary did phone you, I hope? I've been away for a couple of weeks on honeymoon."

 Deyize nga awooze kwe kudaamu nti “Munaaye teyan’gamba naaye tewali mutawana Mw. Bakyini.”

Daisy recovered herself, "Well, no, she didn't - but that's quite all right Mr. Baccini!"
