Whats up, whats happening fellow members of this fantastic country?!
That’s right, you will have noticed I changing things up with the greeting, this was for a few reasons. Firstly, change is as good as a holiday and who doesn’t like a holiday. Secondly, it’s time to beef (or tofu – for all the veggies out there) up our slang.
So, hola seven, much like eita – is also a greeting which knows no boundaries. It is pronounced, ‘hol-ah se-ve-n’. This greeting is multi-faceted, and can be accompanied by an extended thumb and forefinger pointing upwards and outwards. In addition to this, it can be said on its own, shortened to ‘hol-ah’ or ‘se-ve-n’, and for situations where verbal communication in not possible – the gesture works like a treat too. So go on, get out there and embrace this new lingo. Watch this space, we are really going to be getting into this. Shap!
Ok, now that we are rolling with the big dogs and speaking like them too…lets get down to business, well not really business as such…more the weather. Now, I typed “South African weather” into the Google search bar. Well, things are definitely not looking so good out there…and no matter where you go, you will always hear a “shucks, it is cold outside” or “I don’t remember the last time the weather was this bad”. Here is an approprite theme tune for the rest of your reading pleasure.
Here is my theory, no one remembers how cold/wet/rainy it was. Sure, the temperatures might be colder, or we might experience more rainfall this year in comparison to last. Nature and the associated phenomena are not static, thus we experience fluctuations.
Now, for everyone who knows me – they know that winter is not my favourite time of year. This has not changed, BUT in stead of complaining about it (which changes nothing) I am embracing it. I know that by doing this, I will appreciate my summer that much more this year, and every year after this. It really works, I suggest you try it. For those of you who love this weather, enjoy it twice as much because summer is just around the corner.
That is all for me, be safe, keep warm and do something nice for a fellow member of the rocking Republic of South Africa.
