Goodbye

I would not say I hate goodbyes but I would take a slice of cake over a goodbye any day!
Okay, so I would take a slice of cake over very many things, every day, but you get the point, yeah?

Babies, little girls, older girls and Body Image

I went for a baby shower recently. Walking into the house, there were all these familiar faces, people I see at best once a year(maybe every two years is more accurate). Each time, though a long time will have gone by, their faces are always in the recesses of my mind. Faces never really leave me. Names on the other hand…well, I’ll need to perhaps start making short notes to remember the accompanying names. You know how it is with family of family of family…family nonetheless.

How we would be held accountable for the condition in which we brought back the books, how we would be fined for any damages, how long you could have a book out, how many books at a time, the fine per day for lateness…plus a whole lot of other bureaucracies. Then, we were given the power to read and explore.

Being a 2nd Generation Luhya in The Time of Luhya Memes

I was recently at a loss of what to write, so, as I occasionally do, I asked one of my friends for a topic idea.

“Chicken,” he said.

Chicken? How would I write about just chicken? What would the point be?

…and then I wondered, did he suggest ‘chicken’ as a topic because I am Luhya?
