A Rueful Class Reunion in the City of Accra
We had a mini reunion not many nights ago. One of our colleagues was taking the lead leap of launching his solo practice. We were all proud of him ... I hope :-). But two of the vicious vixens in our class were curare-paralysed with envy when another of the more visible of our guys touched down with his spicy senorita. She was in a dress cut and uncut to show off her young, cavernous, hips-don’t-lie body in many heart-stopping cameos. The sneers, snide remarks and non-discreet snickering didn’t make it to their already-ageing eyes. The rest of us loved it when mock choking turned real for the one with the most post-school, personal-life mistakes (I know it’s wicked, but it was fun).
