In Summary
  • Thus, Kampala was on fire, the bars were full, party people that seemed to be getting ready for a draught, those that bought beers they wanted to abuse before its midnight to those that were showing whoever cared that they were potential partners for part of the night.
  • Over the years, there have been theories about boys that kiss and tell, how they track their prey and eventually attack, but still over those years, I have not been frequenting bars that it is shocking how things have changed.

It was Ash Wednesday and that definitely means lent is on.
You know what that means; citizens are off meat, beer, favorite foods, some do away with everything called lunch while others choose to let sex go.

Yes, for the forty days that follow, these people choose to tame themselves, they choose to painfully not let their minds wonder when a certain Monicah gets her nudes leaked and later have to sadly turn her down if she calls asking for it.
It was because of this that Tuesday night felt like a purge of sorts, it is like people set out to do all the evil they have not accomplished between January to March. They tried to compress all their thoughts, desires and ways in 24 hours, but since they had work and probably meetings, they had only between 5pm and midnight.

Thus, Kampala was on fire, the bars were full, party people that seemed to be getting ready for a draught, those that bought beers they wanted to abuse before its midnight to those that were showing whoever cared that they were potential partners for part of the night.

For instance, where boys used to do a lot of strategising before attacking, today girls help them strategise, yes, they have female sidekicks that point them to the right direction.

Yet all that aside, even girls strategise and attack boys for their own benefits, they can stay at a distance, see you buy your drinks and before it is too late, they buy you one before introducing themselves.

For the benefit of Ash Wednesday though, the game was turned upside down. We were being attacked by people we know, the girls we talk to and laugh with.

“I remember how it started with, you are looking good, seems your woman is doing a good job,” she said.
Stupid me had no idea that the statement was made to establish if I was still single, what followed was me bargaining for freedom.

Of course the girl child wanted meat at least one more time before fasting could kick in and she was clear as she went on.
“For any Christian, you need to understand that these are forty days we are talking about, I give you one more chance, take it or leave it..”

Well, fast forward to Wednesday afternoon, the daughter was slaying the ashes with hashtags such as #NoMealsTingDis.
