Are you serious?

Are you serious?

“Wealthy sugar mummy wanted for romance and company, serious and starved women only” This is an ad I found recently in a personals section of a local daily. Don’t bother asking what I was doing and do forgive me for the rant that is about to follow but naturally it made quite an impression. I’ve tackled the dating a younger man question in a previous post and here I am again. No doubt I will have much to contribute on the subject so watch this space. You see for me, and I’m sure for many… Continue reading →

Cheaters 101

Cheaters 101

In 2006 I really got into watching the TV show “Cheaters” on Reality TV. Over popcorn and wine I’d follow the presenter with his cheesy comments, cackle over the surveillance and gleefully support the cheated when they confronted the cheater – partner, lover, husband, wife, what did it matter? They were busted and being humiliated. Yeah. Justice! People these days talk about infidelity with such nonchalance. Like many others before me I was fairly confident about what I would do if I ever found out my man was cheating on me. My back up plan,… Continue reading →

How to lose a guy in 10 days

How to lose a guy in 10 days

I love to read articles about understanding men, mostly from the home page on MSN. Every time I discover some delicious new fact about our Martians, I try it out on my better half. His response is always something like, ‘The trouble with women is that they take all their man-talk from other women.’ I always want to yell,  ‘Men don’t talk about their feelings, so we have to discover them through other women … or gay friends!’ And somehow I don’t think man advice from a gay pal counts for much, because their thought… Continue reading →

Of Men vs Women [Part 4]

Of Men vs Women [Part 4]

Its one of those Wednesdays. Shirley is busy packing her numerous belongings into her hand bag while bidding her colleagues good evening. She often thinks of quitting this Bank Teller job, but some days stand out more than most. Like today for instance. It takes 4 days for a cheque to mature! Simple and Clear. So why would a grown up man, bring his ugly face to the bank two days later!? As if that’s not enough, claim that the bank is too slow, and try to debate bank policy with her, a mere bank… Continue reading →

When we stare [Part 2]

When we stare [Part 2]

Christine was…well…different. As I discovered later, she wasn’t really in what you would consider the top cream of her class – if by class you meant from an academic perspective. She derived her reputation from ‘leading men astray’ as my priest would put it. I found her particularly skinny but she spared no efforts at squeezing her body into the skimpiest of school skirts, often to the administration’s chagrin. I briskly followed Jack who appeared to be in a peculiar hurry to get things over with. Our short trip led us to a darker section… Continue reading →

Commitment or not

Commitment or not

She sat at the far end of the corner feeling so down and wondering how come Jake had become so distant with her. They had gone out and I mean she had done everything by the book but still it was not working out. Her calculations in her head were so many that she decided it was better to let it go. However what we don’t realize is that just because a man has refused to commit to us (women in general) is that he is not interested or assume that he is afraid of… Continue reading →

What came first? The chicken or the egg?

What came first? The chicken or the egg?

Dear Diary, What came first? The chicken or the egg? OK, more specifically who started this losing war? The women who demanded too much from men, thus turning them into chivalry-deprived, insensitive, sex-crazed empty souled creatures (deep breath) OR the men who, due to their above-named issues turned women into gold-digging, self respect-lacking, easily sexed, easily pleased, empty souled creatures? Does it matter? Dear Diary, who cares????? Listen, I suppose the point I’m trying to make it is this: I feel like lots of people are in the biggest race of their lives, trying to impress… Continue reading →

Kenyan girls are loose?!?!?

Kenyan girls are loose?!?!?

Dear Diary, Here I am sitting in the darkness. I have to say, it’s pretty nice trying to play scrabble with some really cool people, squinting in the candle light to see the letters on the old tiles. Actually, they’re playing and I’m chilling. Kenyan style. In the dark Seriously though, how was your week? Mine was interesting, as usual. Here’s the thing on my mind though: A non-Kenyan male friend recently shared with me that the word on the street is…are you ready? “Kenyan girls are cheap.” Whaaaa???!!!?!?!? I’ve gotta say I got a… Continue reading →

When we stare… A true story [Part 1]

If you had the option of choosing what precise moment you prefer to die, what would your choice be? Most of us would probably say just after going for confession. Let’s face it; none of us likes the idea of paying for our sins, right? Sins by definition are everything your mama and your pastor or priest have told you not to do, but which for some obscure reason appear infinitely more appealing than the good deeds. But what to do? It is what it is, right? Ok, enough of that. One of the Sins… Continue reading →

Chivalry AWOL

Chivalry AWOL

I have endeavored to keep account mainly about child upbringing and single parenthood to date. However, today I will digress and talk about men and the current lack of chivalry among them. So much is being said about us women having become so easy to get, loose, immoral etc. However, for every action, there is a reaction. Men today have no qualms about lamenting on and on about how women have worn trousers and taken up their roles. Harken men! This is a sign that you have so failed to do your bit, that woman-… Continue reading →
