One sentence only

When you are in a webcafe trying to see what to put on your blog one evening, and ideas, which normally thunder in herds through your insane head, raising dust, chaos, and a lot of noise (you know how herds of ideas usually be) and you are crouched, like any buffalo/idea sniper worth his salt, and you are worth your salt, having graduated top of your class from Sandhurst (the one in Katwe not the one in Ntinda), on top of a well-placed anthill, with your brand new bow and arrow poised, it’s weapon level set to “deadly force”,  your eye keen and focused, looking and looking closely, waiting to pick one juicy, fat, healthy one to shoot down, so that you can blog its bloody carcass, this gruesome imagery doesn’t bother you one bit, then this dude next to you starts to as if make kaboozi, like he looked at you and noted a striking resemblance to a radio talk show, one that invites idle yapyap from all corners and does not discriminate, as if you are not going to cast a cold, evil, mean, steely, contact lens at him and without a word shut him the freakin’ell up and put him back in his place, causing him to thank God (Silently) that you did not carry your baseball bat with you that evening, you try to get back to the post and you find that you are out of webtime.



  1. Feel your pain! One sentence only, huh? Hey, forget the leave and get back to your comfortable corner desk at work.

  2. Which cafe is that where you’re charged per button pressed? Seems like a logical reason for missing leaving out the comas,fullstops…..

  3. That’s what I call ‘ekinyiizo’.

    Was the point of this blog to tell us you had replaced your glasses with contacts? CONGS!!

  4. Oh, now may be you need to return to the Corporate Gulag, where ideas don’t have to be hounded down;admit it, you miss the in-spear-ation. Just saying, as a keen observer would.

  5. Minty, if anyone else had dared that pun they would have been drawn and quartered!

    @ My friend Victoria, you think I have just arrived? I have been rocking hi-tech sexy contact lenses for years now. Your congs are belated.

    @ Cheri, tell Kobayashi, wamma, that those of us from our school know grammar. We don’t miss full stops and commas.

    @ Kobayashi, I was going to riposte with the spelling of comma, then I saw that I had written “it’s” instead of “its”, so I guess you win by default.

    and Cheya, comfortable corner desk? Are you offering me a job?

  6. Hey Baz, correct me if am wrong, I thought all the senior editors of this country’s leading daily have comfortable corner offices…

    Meanwhile, that was a hot “Bad Idea” yesterday! Especially about that guy from Kisementi, he makes me wanna borrow your baseball bat.

  7. b.t.w. Baz, you favor the breakfast show…somebody there deserved a mention in your Bad Idea of yesterday.. and that person is not fat

  8. Dude, Darlkom is comparing you to Salman. That is just not right. Salman has nothing on you. He pales in your light.


    No, but for real.

  9. your ideas come in thundering herds? that explains a lot, Baz…. i always figured something was running amock up there… maybe not buffalo, but something:-)
