My most memorable embarrassing moments

PHOTO COURTESY

There is always that new technological invention we encounter but have not used before. If you are lucky, it happens when you are with someone who understands ulikuja tu Nairobi Kibaki akiwa President kwa hivyo ushamba umejaa kichwa (you came to Nairobi when Kibaki was the president[2002 – 2012]) and so you are still naive. So the partner whispers instructions in your ear and saves you the blushes. Other times the Devil shows you that finger, and embarrasses you big time.

She stood there looking pretty and was like “Sir, please remove your table from the seat. What are you gonna have today?” I just stared at her like an idiot

I have been a victim, many times, but I’ll share two.

  1. So they serve food in aircraft!

    The first ever time I was on an aircraft hata sikujua (I didn’t even know) they serve food. That time nimeingia on board na kiburi (I boarded arrogantly) like I was a Platinum member. Acha food itokee crew aniambie nitoe meza (Then came the food and the steward asked me to pull the table) from my seat. She stood there looking pretty and was like “Sir, please remove your table from the seat. What are you gonna have today?” I just stared at her like an idiot, karibu nijikojolee na kiburi changu (I almost got my pants wet with my arrogance). Wueh, that little space around my seat ilikaa kubwaaa (was too big).

  2. Kumbe the seat is moved via a button on the door🙈

    Another time a friend carried me in a Beemer, an effing 7-Series. Si mimi nimezoea Toyota 110 et al mtu husongeza seat by pulling something from under the seat. Nilivuta hivi nikaskia ‘kaaak!’. I had broken something. The guy was like “Duude, you’ve just got into my car and you are vunjavunjaing things man!” Kumbe the seat is moved via a button on the door🙈
