I often have a difficult time concentrating in a seminar or in a meeting mostly because more often than not I’m lost in my own thoughts of like when the meeting will end. I’m most definitely in a congested matatu heading back home; in my mind that is, before the meeting has even began. I’m the kind that doesn’t know how to take it easy and living in the moment is just but another saying.
So you think that Michuki rules apply on this our side of Kīrīnyaga county, haha hizo zilienda na hayati ahera. The vans here will carry five people per row and the passengers even know where the karūbao is kept, no need for the conductor to give the grand tour since we are all too familiar. Said conductor will enjoy sitting on the good seat as he munches on his Jaba and sips his predator energy drink as he chit-chats with the driver while you who is paying will be squeezing yourself only getting relief from Rev Ask Kyande’s ‘Wachungaji, Wachungaji nelezeni iiii,’ playing in the matatus Jukebox, that is if the said matatu driver has a good taste in music, otherwise you’ll be nursing roaring eardrums two days after. Hip hop is not for the faint hearted 🤣😂
If you thought the Van situation was worse think again, trying boarding a probox and you’ll wish that there were no speed governors and that that old speed governor song of Lord I’m coming home and Precious memories would apply and you’d land on ‘petu pazuri nimeshapakumbuka.’ Let me tell you Maina, that vehicle can carry passengers the tip of the iceberg being four sweaty people hapo kwa driver. If you think I’m exaggerating, tembea huku kwetu Kīrīnyaga.
So back to the meeting, if I’m not in the mat cruising these snaky roads back home, then I’m busy observing people and making conclusions. I don’t know why I’m judgemental like that because the Good guy up there told us to judge not, but then again MJ sang, ‘human nature’ and I guess it’s in my nature to be weird, I don’t struggle. Next time we are in a meeting with you, ask me what I thought about you, but please don’t ask me what was deliberated.😉 I’d have to make a deliberate effort.
