So our Nyanja lesson for this week is how to address this situation.
“Bway-lani konboyo” – come behind me
And if you’re standing on line to order something you say,
“Mudi pu-seko” – may I please have
And when they start having a full on conversation with you cause you’ve only managed to learn a few phrases you say,
“Sindi- vwela chinyanja” I don’t understand Nyanja
So far I’ve only used “Mudi pu-seko” but I’m itching to whip out and throw down if anyone cuts me or my kids on line.
Don’t mess with an angry Asian….woman… from Brooklyn!
Good bye and see you tomorrow! (‘Tis-sow-nana my iro’)
Every time I go to the CLO (Community liaison’s office), they (Kelly her assistant, Melissa) come up with the funniest sh*t EVER. If you’ve already seen this…then YES! And if you haven’t….then YOU’RE WELCOME….now go change your underwear now!
