When was the last time you chased her around that cheap apartment of yours? You will get comfortable with life, focus too much on earning a living, then completely forget to live. And I make a conscious decision not to have a conversation about it.
When was the last time that the both of you played around like children? It takes him a whooping five minutes to conclude his business and get back inside the car.
I just see it from the comfort of a car as I drive by.
It is just an overcrowded little place with cheap housing.
He must be about five seven and weighs around sixty five kilograms.
Whereas his voice is authoritative and intimidating, his frame is a bit small.
I guess it is at this juncture that I start recognizing the confidence in his voice.
Read the story below and enjoy the sensation I have just dropped a young lady off at “The Hood” when the request comes through. Him: (Laughing) Where I come from, they only have bullets, guns, bombs, khat and prostitutes. They must have just invented a sense of humor where you come from. You just might be the Issac Newton of humor where you come from. If you answer me honestly, I’ll answer your question honestly. Him: And what would my being a soldier have anything to do with my being a criminal? Then maybe I could conclude that you’re probably suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Me: You question me like there’s something wrong with normalcy. It is what our ancestors fought and died for all those years ago. For the right of Kenyans to lead their normal, boring lives. And you have to come to your uber driving job which forgive me for saying, is pretty boring. But just so for your information, I think any man who drives an automatic car is a coward. Are you sulking now because I did something you deem inappropriate? So I reduce the volume and press the brakes pedal because we’re approaching another set of bumps. Me: Finding something that hasn’t been found by anyone else before? Matter of fact, driving around Nairobi at h can be quite therapeutic. With a normal job and a normal relationship and normal friends and normal beliefs, right? Maybe you have a quickie before it is time to jump of out bed and grab a shower. Or she is on her period and you’re horny so you masturbate in the shower. Then you have to make sure your normal kids are ready for normally uninteresting school and then they are off. Me: (Laughing uncomfortably) I guess I’m just a normal guy. I will cork it, then I will slowly lift it to your head (points at my temple) right here and I will not even count to three. (He looks right into my eyes so severely I am downright scared now. So I drive him out of Githurai as fast as possible. Then when I pull it out, I will be holding a 1911 Colt .45 semi automatic sidearm. I start the car immediately and drive fast towards Ruiru because the last thing I want is for him to ask me to take him home to where my wife and children are. His stone face tells me he is not) He’s the guy who discovered gravity. Him: Where I come from, we have perfected the art of a poker face. But at this juncture, I start wondering whether he is crazy.
