All my buddies call me Njugush. It’s yet another weekend and I am aware that Vinny and Babu will be at Smashers, our favourite joint. I’ll have to make an appearance despite my current financial situation. Lately, I’ve been juggling between paying debts and borrowing but I am getting nervous that a time would come when I’ll run out of lenders. So my plan for the weekend is to sweet talk a ‘Sugar mommy’ into hooking me up with some pocket money. I’ll promise her some good times later on, but who knows, it’s party time and I have to do whatever I can to make things happen.
A few months ago I never had to contend with such minor bills as fuel for my car – which looks dilapidated of late – or to make matters worse, my electricity tokens. It seems like I’ve been on a spending spree in the last six months or more, yet I have nothing to show for it. Only memories of drinking sprees and regrets on Sunday afternoon.
Well, I think I’ll have to plan my finances soon and get back to the way I used to be. Organized, trendy, and sharp with a bulging wallet. But for now, I have to find a way of linking up with my buddies. Needs must. I might give one of my great lady friends a call and talk her into sending me 2K via M-Pesa.
What a minute, what! I have no credit? This can’t be happening. Let me borrow airtime or send her a reverse call. I’ll think about my precarious finances after the party.
