> Like Ngiraidechiel's first, small drop of feces.
Ngiraidechiel had just assembled his fishing gear when he felt the urge to relieve himself. In the bush he started to do so when, with the first small drop of feces, a rat scooted under him and made off with it. He looked at the scurrying animal and called: "Wait, you, that was just the first drop, more and bigger ones will follow!" The resulting saying has to do with desirability of delayed rewards. It was used, for example, with reference to the first rations received from the military following World War II. Conversely, it may be applied to disaster in the sense that "the worst is yet to come."
