(Verbatim of my high school diary. Truth be told, I also can’t remember who some of these people are! And the slang used then! WOW. )
5th August 1995
The wedding was nice and the day, clothes and everything were nice. I made friends with the new bride Annet Muthoni. She’s a sweet babe who is very nice.
The day after the wedding, when we are coming home, I am told that my hands are soft like chicken. Didn’t I get shocked? I just laughed the whole day! The matatu gets stuck at Mwea and we play till another one comes.

I go to Jojo’s place for the first time and I also fall in love. FIRST SIGHT. The guy is called BM. A Kikuyu who sticks at Riara Villas. He wears spects and has weird ears. But he is very cute and nice. He talks nicely and he starts to make conversation with me. It’s like after I went, he told Jojo, ‘Your friend is beautiful’. Then she tells me. But I don’t tell her that I’m into him. Then we decide to enjoy the poor guy and ask for his address. He doesn’t believe and so he gets my phone number.

BM calls me! It was kitu 7:45pm. We talk about many things. He tells me that he doesn’t believe in love at first sight, for example, pilot and air hostess. (
I can’t remember how he explained that!) . He loves diving and basketball.
31st August 1995
BM calls me again and tell me why he isn’t into Nerea (
who is Nerea!?). He also tells me why he can’t pull a doze with Jojo. And that I shouldn’t be telling Jojo what we talk about!
