10 misconceptions

2 Apr

Yesterday i made two years in blogsville(and i am yet to get to 100 posts! eish, kyaba too hard). It was one of my girl friend’s birthday. Happy belated my sister from another mother, it took you to teach me the true value of girl friends and how many years i wasted not making enough of them. Today happens to be one of my long time girl friend’s birthday as well, Happy birthday Mrs B!

Over the weekend, i attended this really cool party and it hit me how lots of people totally don’t get who i am(not that i care) but it was funny. In no particular order the misconceptions

1. That i date only white men(this has to be one of top misconceptions). Last year after i cut my hair, one of my best friend’s mum commented on how we are alike, i later learnt she meant, our love for white men(sorry sweetie you are alone in this one). Another incident was at the party over the weekend, one of my white friends came to say hello and you should have seen the dude in my circle, hahahaha i burst out laughing and did not bother to set the record straight. Oh yes the biggest reason for this is because i play Ultimate. No i do not like white men, i like MEN! White, chocolate, caramel, dark chocolate, blue, yellow, orange, purple pink etc!!

2. I am boring(usually people i do not interact with socially). On various occasions people who meet me at a professional level think i am uptight and probably too strict lol(if only they knew). When we finally get to hang out they are in shock, that is how i got the name the mad Ugandan.

3. I am a tough cookie, yes i do think part of me is tough but those who know me really well know i am such a softie and romantic! and yes they use it to walk all over me. To be honest i am so afraid to fall in love because it might be my down fall……….. may be not!

4. I am well-traveled, i might have visited more countries than the average Ugandan but i am just getting started, i really do not consider my self as well traveled.

5. I am a snob(at all levels). I found this very funny but when asked a friend why he had thought so, he said i never acknowledged him when we passed each other on the street. Truth is, i am most likely absent-minded when walking, thinking up great ideas, thinking how i missed a wonderful photo opportunity, replaying conversations in my head(and analyzing them lol), so next time you find me, stand right in front of me or chances are i might not see you. When i had just started driving i found it hard( still do) have to work double to keep my focus on the road! It is worse that i drive like a maniac, 3 out of 5 times when i drive in this slow city, i get stopped by the ever efficient police(almost got arrested once).

6. I can’t cook to save my life. I always wonder why people come to such conclusions, today i got a text for one of my many suitors ‘Do you cook as well as you dress? ‘ not sure if it is a compliment to my style(which i think is pretty fabulous). But i consider myself a great cook, going by the return rate to my dinner parties :).

7. I am a party animal, this goes out to my friends, for some reason when i arrive at  a party it ‘catches fire’, so i always get invited to parties(who am i to say no?), i do love to party but i value my me time a lot more, i would rather hung out on my own and listen to some soul, jazz, blues, afro soul, soft rock, classical music.

8. I am very hard-working, yes i do work harder than the average person but truth is i am very, very lazy. I would rather sleep than write that report but since i know if i do not do it now it will affect my sleep time, i will do it really fast :).

9. I only choose cool people to be my friends. How is it possible to only have cool friends? I only have special friends, gifted in many ways. It does matter where you are from, what you do but where are you going? what are you doing to get there? If we get along, you are welcome to be my friend, there is always room for a new friend.

10. Last but not least, i drink like fish, smoke, do weed etc, i do not indulge any of the mentioned activities. water is my preferred poison(with lime and ice). I blame on my friends making me look like i am in the pombe clan.

So what are the most common misconceptions about you?

Happy new month! Especially all the April babies.

A special dedication to the April babies. Daddy Cool – Boney M.
