I turned 26, that’s 4 more years till I’m 30 and I still feel the same way I felt on my sweet 16th b-day but I’m not sure I look the same now. Three to four grey hairs, dark circles under my eyes and gained a few kilos which I plan to lose in the next few years. But really birthdays don’t feel the same as before.

I remember in my primary years at school we gathered up for assembly and sang some nursery rhymes we learned in our music class. There was this song that made me giggle a lot especially every time one of the boys in our class attempted to sing it. I just can’t get it out of my mind tonight and I still don’t know what it means or what language it is but it goes something like that: sisi sisi si dolada yaku sine ladu banahaa banahaa banahaa banahaa yaku sin ladu banahaa.

Today my co-worker had to leave early because she had a Doctor’s appointment, so usually I give her a lift back home, but today I was all on my own. When it was time to leave as usual I took the bus. I got in the bus and there was this friendly bus driver and the security guard in the passenger’s seat. Sometimes when I’m all alone I get such crazy and silly ideas. Today I just couldn’t push such thoughts away and my mind was going like this: ‘What if I was taken as a hostage? What would I do if the bus driver takes my wedding ring, expensive watch and necklace? I must beg him to let me go because I have a baby who still needs me. I feel sorry for him, maybe if he was paid a decent salary he wouldn’t have taken me as a hostage!’
