4 things the Kenyan woman wants her man to know
20 March 2015, 16:51
Nairobi - At times I keep long nails, not acrylic or plastic or glued
on but just mine. They are not untidy or carry dirt, in fact I carry wipes just
to prevent this. They are also well manicured and they also look very pretty if
I may say so myself. If they get chipped I repaint them every night, I should
also add I change the colors at will. So according to some men, I may not be
wife material because I have long manicured nails because what it communicates
to them is that I never touch water. I should ask if they think I do not shower
either. If I got the chance and the money, I will upgrade to those glued on
I found these men really amusing because they do not live
with me but they already passed a judgment based on appearance. Probably why
most of you are ending up with wives that run you out of your houses within a
year. By the way, I wash utensils and do my own laundry, thing is, there is
this thing called remover that I just use to take off the now spoilt manicure
and replace it.
Some men have poor judgment when it comes to the
women that you run around with. Just because a woman knows how to take care of
herself and look classy does not mean that she is high maintenance and will run
you to the ground when it comes to finances. As you see her, she is single,
using her own money to make herself to look like that. If you end up with her,
chances are it will remain the same unless you are an upstanding gentleman and
offer to take over because she is now your woman.
If a woman takes the
time to make her hair every week as compared to every three months that should
tell you that she is neat and she takes the time to take care of herself.
Instead you are choosing to think that she is high maintenance, pass her over,
then go for the one with unkempt hair and cry foul when you find out she is
dirty. Really? You could not tell she was dirty from her dirty hair, chipped
nails and dirt on the edges of her jeans?
I also have a bad habit of going to the market, if I see a
nice looking top or pair of pants I will pick it up. What took me to the market
though was groceries. See, I like cooking and experimenting with what Gordon
Ramsey shows on the F-word. As I multitask picking clothes and food, you assume
I am a spendthrift so you pass me up for the woman you met at the club. Then
you complain she cannot cook and you have never seen her go to the market. You
complain she never uses her own money to buy food. Really? You could not tell
that the household burden would be up to you yet you never saw her go to the
market when you met her single.
As I was buying expensive ingredients for my food, you
figured I was going to experiment with cocktails (I do that too though). Now
you are stuck with a woman who serves you porridge for Ugali and you call out
all women from Nairobi as bad cooks. What you should call out is your bad
judgment. It got you the bad wife.
You take me out on a date, I order a cocktail and you write
me out as expensive because I am not taking beer. Excuse me, I am not about
that Tusker life (no offence EABL, I am calling out the men not you). So now
you are angry she has a potbelly, newsflash, beer gives you a belly. If she is
not working out where do you think it all went? Do not be angry that she wants
to tag along to your local and have a beer on you. That is just what you chose.
That gentlemen is the power of choice. YOUR CHOICE that
So if you have a wife who falls short, it is your fault not
that Kenya is running out of good women.
