of engrish ‘cookery’ + pic of the day

December 10, 2008 at 9:20 am | Posted in life | 10 Comments

this is random, but it came after i googled…not Chuck Norris, as def n duh, he would find me, but rather, looking for ‘mathomo‘ and discovered that i have such a tag in my blog.

well, this reminded of this embarrassing moment i had in praima. fresh out ‘ocha’ i enrolled into this (up market) private school where they spoke another foreign language called Kithongo. Mathafu was maths  and ‘gutaraniria‘ was what they called ‘addition’…they sung of three ngreen bottles and other thing i was not apprehensive to.  life was kinda difficult at first, quite difficult for me  but thanks heavens i am/was laid back and i say less (disguised and compressed shrubs INside,lol, then that is!)

i was in class six and every other kid ‘ongead’ this kiswanglish lingo. yaani the kids, still discovering, would run to the ‘ticha’ and say something like...” ticha ticha, this one is say, that he is katia Kate and me i tell him, bad manners…”

so, it happened that after lunch, there was this kettle that would circulate after lunch and this cook, Mama Mwangi, sent me over to fetch it. I was excited at the ‘priviledge’ of the errand  and i went panting to class six B. I found this chick serving water to her friends. There were a few other guys in class and a panting me went like…

” you! you! you’ve to-od (told) by the cook….” /wewe wewe, D.Translation

i posed kidogo, cook? ai, cook? waited for laughter, i was unsure…then decided, i should try another…they were all looking at me now, listening and i went i on…

“you’ve been told by the cookery….”

I never finished the statement as the wild laughter filled the classroom.

usitake jus venye esteem ili-fly nje ya window.

well, i had just given them a ‘new word’ for the mama mwangi’s kindred that haunted me till i did my KCPE…
