When His Father Went Away For Cigarettes.

The hour hand of the clock had struck nine, giving the impression of a perfect right angle. It is in mind the sports bar we are in, is packed full to the brim. One would be scared to think that its contents might spill out like an overflowing mug full of beer. It is a…

Saturday

Asking someone out on a date can be a very tricky affair. It gets your mind spinning about logistics and other mundane factors. You will toss and turn in bed, and if that does not seem enough, you will wake up and pace the room to and fro. At times you will try to figure…

Tales Of An Uber Driver.

A few days ago, I was really late and decided to take an uber to my destination. I hate being late and could not stand the nuances of having to deal with the matatu shenanigans on a rainy day. The uber driver who picked me up was a young chap who seemed to be in…

Gee

This is a true story. The person wished to remain anonymous. As she narrated various emotions surged through.

Young Men & Gambling.
