So, Nick is spoiling for a fight. He feels, in his small childish way, that he can put up a worthwhile fight with this experienced son of ‘muthokoi’. Someone should spoonfeed Nick with a few facts of life. The most important ones being :
Battles are not won through trumpet blowing and excessive noise pollution.
Allegiances are forged not forced.
Patience not ‘dental patients’ is a virtue.
In order for him to win the war he needs to understand the difference between tactics and tact. Attack and a thumb tack. Defence as opposed to ‘da-fence’.
Let me fire the first salvo.
Nick meets Wangu at a bar.
They get along so well that they decide to go to her place.
A few drinks later, Nick takes off his shirt and then washes his hands.
He then takes of his trousers and washes his hands again.
Wangu has been watching him and says, "You must be a dentist."
Nick, surprised, says "Yes....how did you figure that out?"
"Easy," she replied, "you keep washing your hands."
One thing led to another and they make love.
After they are done, Wangu says, "You must be a good dentist."
Nick, now with a boosted ego says, "Sure, I'm a good dentist, How did you figure that out?"
" I Didn't feel a thing!"
