The things that give us the most pleasure are the simplest ones. Really, come to think of it. When you get hungry a plate of food suffices to get you full and satisfied. It doesn’t matter whether the plate cost 50 shillings at the kibanda around the corner or you went to a five star hotel and paid a couple of thousands for it. The feeling of being full is pretty standard the world over. I’m not talking about taste because clearly the tastes will be varied at the two places. I won’t go on and start discussing which place will offer a more savoring serving as that is not the purpose of this piece. However, I will state that we all know a kibanda that serves food that tastes better compared to a big restaurant with some fancy name and were it not for the gram and status quo we would prefer the kibanda any day anytime seeing that it’s also pocket friendly.
When you get dehydrated, the thing that gets you back up quickly and quenched is just the same old water. You might go for milk or juice or beer or soda or vodka but what gets the job well done is the simple formula of hech-to-ooh. A tight hug does the trick for dear friends who haven’t seen each other for a minute. A warm bath or cold shower after a long hectic day at work relaxes our nerves. And it’s even better when it’s quiet and peaceful. As calming as some chill music is, or how serene that painting you bought during your vacation is, some moments just require shutting your eyes, laying still in that bath and listening to the sound of silence to provide all the energy you need to recharge and recollect.
And in as much as most of us want to be thought, seen and known as kinky. Deep down we all know that there are times when we simply want the tried, tested and proven ancient missionary sex to relieve the tension and give us the pleasure and satisfaction that makes life worth living. I don’t have the statistics but I suspect most babies are conceived this way as it sure is a passionate, sweet and gratifying position, and the best part for the purposes of this article is, that it’s not strenuous at all to both parties, most especially the female who gets to just lie and spread her legs and, maybe just maybe, lift them a little to which if she has to the man will help hold them. These times, the times we want and crave missionary are the most times. I can almost bet on my life that ladies agree with this because we are lazy as fuck and we prefer gifting kinky sex on special occasions as compared to gifting actual normal human gifts to our better halves on these occasions.
My point? Simplicity is love and life. All that is precious to us is quite the simple stuff; A forehead kiss from your boyfriend. Holding hands as you walk and cross the road. A hot mug of tea with an omelet for breakfast. A two minutes call from a friend just to tell you to break a leg on that interview you have been waiting on for weeks. Your colleague telling you how nice that blouse or suit fits and looks on you. Your boss congratulating you for a job well done on that presentation that you slept at three preparing. A stranger smiling at you for no reason at all. Or just the stupid game on your phone that you play when you are bored. God made life simple. Don’t believe that? He made man from just soil/dust and a breath or air. (I’ll discuss the complexities of that some other day and on a different post.) All we are required to do is wake up, eat, socialize, be grateful, sleep then repeat. Life is a cycle of the same old things, habits and routines so stop fretting. Stop worrying. Inhale, exhale and just live.
