I have always feared that one day I will have to make the choice between my undeclared hobby – pinting and my long life affair with nyama – it is hereditary.
Let us assume you are in the 99 percentile that form victims of the two most common diseases in urban Kenya; ulevi and chronic nyama dependency: what would you do if you were forced to choose between the two?
Would you give up pints or nyama?
As a long time symptom carrier of the said two diseases I have to say I am tentatively leaning towards giving up pints. For those who know me, please don’t fait just yet. I will explain.
Truth be told I just don’t see how I can approach a meal without nyama. I can voluntarily skip nyama during lunch lakini a whole day or two days, that’s just pushing it.
A meal without nyama is like a perfect chile….. Sura ni timamu; Tanye ni ile ya come and see; character is heavenly; lakini jugga jiggies ni MIA.
Yani no matter how good she looks there is just something missing. It’s the same thing with food, you can cook heaven on a plate but if it doesn’t have nyama as an ingredient…I will pass.
On the other hand I do not want to undermine the importance of pinting. I can never turn my back on a friend who has always been there through every trial and tribulation of my life.
You see there are times you feel a thirst that can only be quenched by a cold one preferebly at your local and at or near the suggested retail price.
When this thirst beckons one could even dive into a fresh water lake, swim across drinking gallons of H2O but the thirst for a cold one will be waiting for you on the other side of the lake.
Can you imagine sitting down with friends on a Saturday afternoon, the sun bright and shining, everyone is having the time of their life, exchanging storos, downing brews in between shotoz…
…then there is your sorry ass seated on the same table trying to hold back tears as you nurse an orange juice?
I swear that is when I tell my creator, please take me NOW!
And maybe when one gets kidoz and settles down or as we call it ‘handing in your balls and hammering the last nail’, these kinds of issues become easier to sort out.
But for now I just pray I don’t have to make this choice any time soon.
Enjoy your weekend peoples.
