*Current situation … My little people are screaming* ( little people – see next post)
And I couldn’t wait to put it on paper ( laughing emoji )
So I’m heading out and I’m at a bus stop… As much as I don’t fancy matatus , footsubishi is not an option cause I’m super tired
People always talk of how public transport is boring and a hustle . I’ll not really say its the opposite rather… There is Joy in all situations
I have found entertainment here
Back to the story…
So yes I get into one of those buses enroute Ngong road. For once the traffic is not as bad and I’m estimating 10 minutes tops for me to get home. Its getting pretty stuffy in the bus and there is this one nagging kid who’s screaming afew sits ahead of me.
Just before I plug in my ear phones cause I can’t take it anymore , the baby goes like ” Mama I need to go!” So I’m like …. Go????
Then now he’s screaming ” I need to nini ! ” so his mother let’s him know they are about to alight. Feeling fed up I plug in my earphones and pump up the volume.
*Running through my mind* (aaaah look at Nairobi … Where are all these people coming from?…. Who’s home though?…. Gosh I’m so hungry!)
Then … There it was!! It hit me!!!
( you know that moment when someone let’s it go ( sing it like Elsa ) and everyone is suspicious)
Yes it smelt like a super fart !!!
But then the baby wasn’t crying anymore!
In fact he was outside the matatu with a little smirk on his face something I’ve only seen on telly where the villain is about to escape then gives the HaHa! ( okay maybe not a real smirk he just looked calm ….)
Then I saw it ( laughs ….laughs….laughs … Rolls over….laughs)
It was so small yet it made the place stink so bad .
Okay!!! Just in case you have not joined the dots… The baby had pooped in the bus. Not by mistake … The mommy pulled his pants down and there the child let it gooooo ( sing it) Then, they got off .
Now the tout is complaining and one lady points at it . He breaks into laughter and now everyone is talking and giving comments. Those at the back are trying to get a view the perpetuator of the stench and thaaaaat was it !!
The driver stopped the bus and we all have to get off luckily that was a stop away from mine!
Really that has been my highlight of my matatu trip !!!
I can’t even !! ( laughing… laughing ….laughing!!)
