Wrap round skirt (you might want to fall down)
Cut the onion into small pieces(remember not to wash it)
The pepper(we call it chillies), please please, do not remove the seeds.
Gently apply the onion and the pepper appropriately(as desired) around the eyes
Rub the robb/menthol around the nose and hands (this helps in producing a lot of water from the nose)
Remember, do not sneeze a lot (this will reduce the effects of the robb/menthol)
Put on flat shoes
Wrap the skirt around your waist (save us the embarrassment of seeing your under garments)
Do not eat any sugary food
Run towards the crowd (please, do not yell at this point)
Fall down and roll twice (carefully)
Stand up and hold your head (curses are important at this point)
Remember to be near the kitchen
You can now start wailing
Do not forget the names of your
Dead relatives at this point.
Gently rub another portion of the robb/menthol/onions/pepper as preferred (hoping you had hid them in a safe, cool and dry place)
Get ready for a steeplechase
As you will be circumnavigating the homestead
Do not overdo (there are others who need to be paid too)
On your marks, ready, GO!

/ You told me I shall not want
/ Because You have a Shepherd been
/ You lifted my chin
/ And taught me to look up sign in to read more »
We all say life is like a big hard rock.
/ Some of us think its a walk in the path.
/ Life is like a story with once upon a time.
/ But no happily ever after.
/ Great people with little once upon a time.
/ Gates, Colgate, Carson, Oprah.
/ Just to mention a few born to this life.
/ Once we take the first sign in to read more »
