ps..you mentioned wanting art..i am giving you art…plus he does framing as well..if y’all are interested in purchasing an authentic Ugandan art piece, let me know so I can have you call his people to get intouch with your people. Maybe you can organize an auction, im pretty sure the pieces will be snapped up. 

now enough of props..

There is nothing as disturbing as having heart burn at 2am with no water! Wait let me rephrase that, there is nothing as disturbing as having heart burn at 2am caused by eating heaps of katogo of potatoes and *binyeebwa(Baz holla at me, I got some nice easy to cook recipes also known as bachelor food) during the day and realising that you drunk all the water you had and the last thing you had to drink was a 500ml of sweet coffee, which only serves to aggreviate the heart burn. If only i had ice cubes, I would swallow them whole but that would lead to a massive onset of hiccups of which would lead to only one thing..if you don’t know it i aint saying it..

Somethings hurt..like really hurt but it is a sweet pain, like when that nice Indian chiropractor snaps your middle vertebrae into place thereby unlocking the ones which locked..it is ecstacy! I could have slept there while he re-aligned my whole spinal cord but sadly it is short, i only wish he had told me to sit up slowly..then I wouldn’t have left his practice without having muscle cramps in my back like I was a fat olympic athlete running for a pie!

 

Speaking of Olympics, I am not going to write about who won what and who lost, you see Tv in this modern day and age is family time, it unites family..well my family. I wouldn’t say we watch alot of tv but we sit down together and watch tv. My fondest memories is watching the 1988 Olympics that saw the name Carl Lewis become popular in our house, young as I was..I walked around dashing around, doing mini sprints and long jumping into the mattress my siblings put on the ground..man I really wanted to be Carl Lewis..even now when we are out in the park or just outdoors and we decide to run, my mum always shouts ‘Carl Lewis’..maybe she really is a bigger fan than I am. So anyway, we sit down and watch the Olympics, old man giving his analysis of the games, old lady cheering whoever seems to winning and if it is athletes, she supports the ‘dark skinned Negro’..and me?Well I am just thankful we aren’t watching the news, it does get one depressing..actually come to think of it, my dinner has been tasting sweeter..Gosh there should be a world sports event every evening!!

    There was a commentator on Radio Uganda who used to shout “Calo Lewizi! Calo Lewizi!” Oh, those were the days.
