Taking it day by day: June 2008


Thursday, June 12, 2008
One fine dude asked me just the other day: "What do you do in your free time?" I told him I read books. He gave me a puzzled look and went ahead to repeat his question trying to make me understand it: "No, I mean in your free time, you know, when you are not working." I nodded and said AGAIN that I read BOOKS. He just did not get it how one could READ in their free time. Still seeing his dissatisfaction with my answer I had to add that I like sewing (another crazy look from him) and that from time to time I hang out with my chick pals (contented look à la: phew, at least she's normal).

When did reading books get scrapped off from the list of things people do in their free time? Does having free time just mean you watch movies, go to the zoo, go to the beach? asii! I did not even bother asking him about the last book he read, coz I am sure I would have been told "ai me i dont read". Yeah, uses up too much brain juice hehehee.

Beer and free calls

Thursday, June 05, 2008
I think some people should be banned from drinking beer and thereafter make use of Safcoms free calls from 2100 to 0600. Just the other day, a male cousin of mine called me shortly before midnight. after a couple of rings I decided heck, lemme see who it is. I see cousin X's number. I wonder what he wants at that hour of the night...in my mind I had already thought of some bad news he was about to break. I say hello and he says hi and then proceeds to ask me why I never call him. He is drunk, speaks like he is trying to find words to make a complete sentence. I tell him that I have been busy kiasi but I will call him soon we plan a meet. He insists I tell him when exactly am I going to call him, I tell him next week before Wednesday. He says he will call me himself (yes, free calls from 2100). Then out of the blue he goes on to say aki your voice is so mzuri, kweli you have a sexy voice - if it were not for us being related "ningepita na wewe". with that, he hang up. I stared at my phone for a couple of seconds wondering wtf?! Don't forget, we are first first cousins. smh.
