Advantages Of Wearing A Mask

Categories Lifestyle, Tales From My Fertile Mind

Wearing masks come with several other advantages besides acting as a physical barrier to protect from potentially harmful germs, chemicals and dust that float around in the air;

As a start, those of us who have ugly, scarecrow faces are wallowing in the luxury of the mask; we are now excelling when people confuse us with the handsome likes of Diamond Platnumz, Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy and Will Smith.

Secondly, the probability increases of attracting what they call yellow yellow crème de la crème aka minji minjis or slay queens; who would otherwise be cautious and non-committal. In any case the mask has already made the faces of the latter to look kawaida.

Thirdly the mask covers it all; the sukuma wiki, spinach and njugu karanga can be eaten carefree, anytime, anywhere, and never, ever have to worry if any of it gets stuck between the teeth. Let that stuff sit there all day if it wants to. It will be dealt with at home.

Fare thee well to fake smiles; this takes some getting used to as one constantly needs to remind self that nobody can actually see what is being done with the mouth. One can even stick the tongue out at people and they’ll never know. One might, however, need to practice alone in front of the mirror just to build up the confidence. The trick is to make sure the eyes are smiling while one makes faces.

I am an epic introvert, who quickly becomes an open book when I pen what’s in my significantly fertile mind; fertile as a result of bombardment by realities that are continuously captured by my inquisitive eyes, ears which are constantly rubbing the ground, through constant reading, and through dreaming too.

Writing provides an opportunity to ‘say’ what my unapologetic quiet mouth will not say; which not only soothes me, but also bequeaths to me a relief, a release, and a hope that the written words will change the world, even if only one person at a time.

And so should you seek, that’s where to find me; deeply tucked inside the blankets of reading, seeing, listening, dreaming, and then writing.
