Sometimes it is necessary to be serious. And i won't lie, i don't have even one single serious bone in me (well..that could b argued about 6" below the belt) and it hurts to be serious for me...but serious I'll be.
Today we celebrate breast cancer awareness and in light of this, women worldwide (or at least in my hood) are going sans-bra to mark this auspicious occasion. Cancer is now the number one killer of people worldwide (i guessed that fact so don't bother correcting me) and for us Kenyans, it hit particularly close to home. In recent months, we have lost veritable iconic leaders to this scourge. It came to the limelight (sorta moonwalked into the limelight like MJ) when veteran environmentalist and Nobel laureate, Wangari Mathai passed on from ovarian cancer. She was a great woman, a trailblazer and a rolemodel to many and her passing shook us to the core. But to matters present, today, let us not just not wear bras. Because, think of it- you not wearing a bra does NOTHING to aid the war against breast cancer. So, what is your contribution? At the end of the day, what will you put up and say "look, here's my contribution." And this is not just to the women ...breast cancer is a scourge affecting both men and women. You ask about me? FUCK YOU! but seriously, fuck you :) Today i volunteer at Brightsveld Private Women's Clinic. I'm that guy you'll find at the doctor's reception signing y'all up for check ups and the afternoon educative seminar. (i tried wrangling work inside the consultation room doing boob checks but got denied :'( ) I cannot not wear a bra (I'm kinky...but not that kinky!!!), but here i stand, doing my bit. What are you doing?
On a more serious note, it's wet and cold today out there. In the short walk from my place to the shop, I've felt probably like how the Nazis felt surrendering on the shores of Normandy...THE NIPPLES!!!! OH MY GOD!! It's like they're pointing accusingly at me! All sizes, poking provocatively thru tops, tshirts, blouses and vests...Who said we couldnt still have fun today? lol!!
Happy No-Bra Day people!!! and to the fellahz, keep your eyes above chin level! have a ( • ) ( • ) filled day!!
