Ahhhh, me dear, dear friends!
What I can say? How to explain these past few months without being dramatical?
I been struggling with trying to learn how to format me manuscript. Lemme explain what I mean by struggle.
Ever try to pour water into stone?
I ain't mean the stone got a hole and you pour the water into the hole.
I mean you pour the water on the stone, and you wait for the water to seep into the stone.
And I ain't mean a porous stone that soak up the juice. I talking about a pahticular type o' stone...it is a pale blue-ish grey, with glints o' silvery-white-crystally type o' shimmer in it. It is a stone that they build house with. Hhhhhhard.
Me head is this stone.
I read the instructions on the manual a trillion times...the rest-of-the-world trillion, not the American trillion, which is less than the rest-of-the-world trillion. And I still struggle to understand what going on. I had to take a drill and work it into me mind. And finally, I understand a li'l bit.
So, that is where me is right now with the formatting.
On top of all this, there was The Election Drama that been absorbing the attention of all and sundry of this here land.
March 2, the people vote.
Five months later, up to last week Sunday, the people couldn't get the results...even though all the observers...local, regional, international...could see that the guvament lose, and the opposition win. Some supporters of the guvament admit openly that the guvament lose.
The guvament throw tantrum, and create story so fantastical, the people start to say it could be a Netflix series. It been more dramatical than the Housewives Of series, that American show where rich ladies scream at one another.
If y'all coulda see the screaming that went down in Georgetown! Guvament minister ladies, shouting at media, and at opposition people, giving the Housewives ladies strong competition.
It get to a point where ambassadors, EU people, Caribbean leaders, plead with the guvament to step down. The pleas fall on ears hard like the stone I mention up there.
Every day was a different episode. People forget they cow and cat to watch the show.
Finally, after threats of personal sanctions, last Sunday, quiet like lamb, the past president concede. Drama done.
I hope y'all staying safe from bad politicians and other types of covid.
Plenty love xxx
