I have a confession to make. I have been in a relationship all this time. With one of my workmates. Her name is Angel.

All this came to light on the day of the curtains. It’s hard to explain. I’ll just have to try my best.

We work in the same office, we share everything..our life stories, food, jokes, music taste, even friends. So it was no surprise really, when we realized we had to do something about it. No, we did not update our FB status to reveal that we are not in a relationship. Perhaps we should have. It would have been less embarrassing than that day.

So when we couldn’t take the tension anymore, we rummaged through the old cabinet that holds all manner of files, toners, paper etc and found some curtains. We used them to shade the office….I mean, one side of the office is just glass and people keep passing by, all the while peering into our office.

Picture this…the curtains are up, the door is locked, the lights are dimmed…we are now past the no-going-back zone, clothes have almost started flying off (a few have even landed on the other side of the building) and then someone knocks. Loudly.

“Mbona ofisi imefungwa?” Knock! Knock! “Who’s inside?” KNock! Knock!

“Na hizi curtains ni za nini?” Knock! KNock!

We were in a panic. Other guys had started gathering and it was becoming a crowd now. Others were peering through any tiny spaces between the fluttering curtains.

This is the point Angel decided to go Jack Bauer style. She swung out the other windowed side,using the curtains on that side.

Left alone….I straightened my clothes, smoothed my hair and with a thumping heart, opened the door.

I met the astonished faces of about 10 or so workers, all trying to wonder what’s going on.

“What were you doing here alone?” One of them asked.

Should I tell them the truth, I wondered? I settled for a lie.

“I was watching porn.” I said.

  1. savvy u r nuts … i would also be curious if one of the offices got curtained up, but if i was to do something evil at the office, it would be better to do it in the open, notice how people never notice something in the open …
