So, standing outside under a cloudy sky, late on a Saturday night 🌃 , we kinda huddled near the street, sparsely scattered with cars. Bitter-sweet moments, all fading away in clouds of cigarette smoke 🚬.. The quiet streets echoed with a dissonant tune of a heated car horn battle between two 🚗 irrational 🚙competitors, with the surprise of an unexpected third challenger ⁉️ and the chorus of giggles and bellows of bubbling laughter 😂.. Soon, a myriad of conversations, all intersecting falls upon the group. Someone shares a joke or comment and the whole group responds – blah, blah blah…
So anyway, without delving too much into the details. In one of these passing conversations, one kinda caught everyone’s ear about getting sick of a cold or something like that. Thereafter, a silly joke was made about Ebola (haha🙄). But in the whispers of the wind, a comment floated by caught only by the targeted.
😲 😳 😳 😳 😳 😠 😐 😑 😶
Never have I ever…been so amused by someone’s ignorance.
My ego was telling me one thing, but my conscience was telling me… the same thing. But sometimes, the clap back 👏🏾 has to simmer. Sit on the pot for a good minute, time it just right… then heh!
I’ll just say when I did, it felt good👸🏾. My approach is b*tch-worthy, but not-so-subtle, snarky remarks that could pass off depending if you understand the situation.
I think about maybe 3-4 people understood that situation at the time.
Never have I ever… felt so much rage.
Honestly, I’ve it’s been a while since I’ve felt that much rage for a pers- no, wait…🤔 Eh. Anyway. Back to my rage. Well not – really rage, but just a complete shock on how ignorant someone can be. How someone can say something so stupid they don’t realise it could possibly be hurtful, even if it’s just a little. A bewitching brew of emotions; irritation😠 , confusion 😯 , anger 😡 , shock 😳 – all bubbling up inside and heating me up from the inside. My thoughts going a mile a minute trying to comprehend how? What? Why? What the Frizzle?! 🤷🏾♀️
The number of things I had done to that boy in my mind! Aki, Ma Ngai!!!!! He 👏🏾 he 👏🏾he👏🏾…. Let’s just say you would be seeing me home sooner rather than later.
BUT THEN! The child had the audacity to taunt me more as I was heading back to my room. Wolo lo lo lo!!! 🙌🏾
WE! Endelea kucheza na moto. 🔥
But after a while, I slowly started to simmer down and I was like. Whatever. I felt nothing.😶 Because I realised, this is just the first of many such encounters. Will they kill me? B*tch please? 💁🏾 Kwani? ‘Cause you think your who?
You can cash me outside…how bow dah? 😏
The life of an ignorant a**hole is simple. Ah! What a life! Enjoy… 🖕🏾 (oops… 👍🏾 😅)
P.S. I don’t have time for you. #BoyBye. 👋🏾
But remember darling, stay in your lane. 🛣
