If my small kahouse was to be the ministry of education and each room was to be a school with motto and all; the living room would be the kind of school that excels mostly in games and not the tough kind of games. Here we are talking about games like chess and monopoly. The motto would be something like Kenny Rogers gambler. You got to know when to hold em and what to hold em. Here you don’t work hard you work smart. The are the ones who will sneak mwakenyas during exams. They don’t want to tire their brains with things like mole concept and the endocrine system. These ones will graduate to become land brokers who will sell you those mburotis maguta maguta.
In the kitchen the motto would be something like this, ‘ mūndū nī mūndū nī kūhūūna.’ or, ‘no matter what you are going through, eat first.’ Here you’ll find the ones who have given up trying to understand the teacher. These are the ones who give the bell ringer the evil eye if he allows the lesson to pass even by a second. They be counting the minutes to lunch break.
In the bedroom you’d find such mottos as, ‘irio cia tombo nī toro.’ Here you’ll find the kids that don’t struggle so much to pass exams.These kids will look at you with an eyeroll and a sneer as you try too hard to cram the Bernoulli principle or the Boyles law. These ones are the Harvard materials except they were born in the wrong corner of the globe.’
Finally in the bathroom is where you’ll find the celebrities. These are the ones who want to walk the Hollywood walk of fame and are not shy to showcase their vocal prowess as they hold an imaginary mic and belt out the newest musicals. The motto here would be, ‘keep dreaming, all dreams are valid.’This is where you’ll find the cool kids and their theatrical antics.

I’m still trying to figure out where to place writers.Wacha nione kama hii boat inawezakuwa na hizo shule pia.
Which one is your school?
