V is for Vivid

I vividly remember when i received a call from this dude.

Imagine you are going about your business and are trying to vividly remember all the things that you want to do and someone calls;

"My name is Ngugi from this village". Do you vividly remember me? He he hehe. Thats my mum's village. So i try hard, first of all everyone in mymum's village goes by the name Ngugi or Mwaura. So he says mimi ni Ngugi Wa Mwaura. Do you know just how effn hard that is for me.

So he texts
"When we talked this afternoon, you said you couldn't vividly remember me. Anyway we met in 1999 and had a lengthy chat at your grandpas home"

Gosh that dude has vivid imagination. I not only not vividly remember him I don't at ALL! dUH

Ok i was impressed that i had made some real impression on a dude who had waited for 8 long years (just how long did Jacob wait for Rachel?) and call me. So i didn't answer back rudely. Ok i learnt not to rudely text back after some dude had been flashing twice, thrice and i told him i was going to kill him if he flashed me again. That was vivid imagination. Shiroh cannot even harm a dead fly. Then he wrote and said, i was just trying to help you, i got your wallet! I hadn't even by then realized my wallet was missing. You can just imagine the embarassment and the bribing i had to do.

anyway this is all i wanted to text him and say
In 1999

I was still thinking Maths, Physics, History
I was extremely innocent

What coulda have happened since then
I have met eons of people
Kibaki has become president
There has been 9/11
A White/black Obama making waves in the US
I have finished Uni and spent 2 years out


How in the endless things could i even remember a random face i met in 1999? True product of Vivid imagination


  1. LOOOOOL, Eti "VIVID" kwani he just learnt a new word. LMAO @ your grandpa's woiyeee, poor boy, maybe he has saved up enough goats!!!!

    Mwehhe, reminds me of this chap called who spied on me when I was sending an email in Burgerdome in 2000!!!, and he still calls me to ask me for coffee up to NOW. Yaani, halafu I never keep his number so I keep asking "sorry, who is this?" every time he calls. he likes calling on Friday evenings mostly. *smh* poor thang'.

    hugs mami, how are you? I'm sending your email nooooow!!! Nani kama mimi?

  2. 8 year the jacob one was 14 close enough. Quite the impression you made on that young man. 99 feels like it was eons ago

  3. Gotta give it to the guy, he got patience!

  4. The guy has patience, 8 years is a long long time no matter how special the impression was. You should give him a few minutes see if he is worth your time.

  5. the dude vividly waited patiently for you to clear school. now that you vividly cant remember him, he must be vividly disappointed eh? LOLLLL

  6. Lol at Chatterly nice one.
    Vivid come backs ama we call them for how.

  7. @KM, i swear i have been dying. And he calls persistently yaani woiyee.
    LOOOOL ati sending mail at Burgerdome when it was the only place where there was a cyber. Good old days. It used to take me 60 minutes to check mail!!!
    Please save his number and tell him you really don't vividly kumbuka him. And then when you meet him you ask, What are you wearing?

    @Gish, al tell him to try and outdo Jacob i mean 14 years. 1999 is so yesteryears. Ngai fafa i don't even remember the way i looked like then

    @Half n Half, ooh yeah that patience he has. Gosh, i will give him mad props

    @3n,weird sense of patience. I wonder what i was wearing. Must have been the clothes

    @chatterly, LOOOL.He must be

  8. I vividly remember that Jacob waited for Rachel for 14 years in two instalments.

    I wonder what the guy has grown to be in 8 years.

  9. Shiroh,

    I feel you don't appreciate attention.

    I thought you would be flattered that he remembers you..and vividly at that.

  10. LOL! you never know what impressions we leave on just one meeting it seems you left a very vivid impression

  11. What did you do to the poor dude? 8 years? WOW!
