Conversation with Vendor



I was buying veggies from a vendor yesterday and we had this conversation.
 
Me: Prices are going up every day what's up
 
Vendor: That is why we are not getting married
 
Me:ooh, why is that?
 
Vendor: Now, the last time i bought maize flour it was Fifty shillings, how much is it now, you might know yourself.
 
Honestly i don't do shopping
When i don't know something, i just smile
 
Vendor: Wacha mtu akae kwao na mimi nikae kwetu, tuonane Sunday and then we can pretend to be married
 
Vendor: Can you imagine the way life is hard, what if i have to take a child to school, the cheapest is 3k, Si nitakufa?
 
Me: You can't die, you just pray to God to provide
 
Vendor: If God was among us, i could go direct to him...you know but now i don't even know where He is
 
At that point i laughed, paid and left.
