One chilly evening Voice Reporter, Joy Chikura catches this conversation among a group of women huddled in a hair salon chatting away about their lonely lives and how their beds have been steamed up by younger men.
WOMAN IN BROWN COAT: This weather is too cold for comfort. One needs a human blanket to ward off the chill.(Shivers as she settles in her seat)
WOMAN IN RED JACKET: Really? Then us singles are in for a big high jump
(LADIES BURST OUT LAUGHING)
WOMAN IN BLUE JERSY: I won’t feel pity for you because I’ve long told you to get a small boy at least to keep you company and warm your blankets.
WOMAN IN BLUE JEANS: Heela mma. Your husband will find you stone cold in that big bed of yours if you don’t find yourself a lover.(giggles)
WOMAN IN RED JACKET: When winter becomes unbearable, my best friend is the hot water bottle. And today I have to fish it out from wherever I threw it last winter.
WOMAN IN BLUE JERSY: My dear you are pretty with a good behind, so getting a man hooked shouldn’t be a big deal.
WOMAN IN BROWN JACKET: Men are not difficult to find, especially when there are so many ma14 looking for big mamas to romp with
WOMAN IN RED JACKET: What? A younger man! You must be joking, what do I do with a small boy in my bed?
WOMAN IN RED JACKET: Seriously, I can’t imagine myself undressing before a child or have him see my nakedness. What would my children think of me, when they see me sleep with their age mate? (in shock and shaking her head)
WOMAN IN PINK SWEATER: Ijo! Then you are losing out baby girl. Young men are the in-thing these days. I only see my husband for six months in a year, so half of the year should I be dying of hunger?
BROWN JACKET: This is when the younger men come in handy! And mma they don’t disappoint. They know how to love and drive a woman crazy.
WOMAN IN PINK SWEATER: Many respectable and well known women have small boys who keep them busy in bed and have even fathered children with them.
BLUE JERSY: At times you realize much later that the man you are with is years younger than you although he looks much older. What do you do? You break up with him?
RED JACKET: That’s a tricky one. But I can never knowingly, deliberately go to bed with a younger man. I don’t want a liability!
PINK SWEATER: Ausi you don’t go for cheap skates who are out to milk you for money. You get yourself a mature boy who runs a business or has a good well paying job.
At least someone who can give you a few bucks when you are short.
BROWN JACKET: There are plenty of them around who are dying for a mature relationship with a sugar mama.
BLUE JACKET: I hear small boys are tired of their age mates because they are gold diggers who are not even good in bed.
WOMAN IN BEIGE LEGGINS: They say small girls don’t know how to take good care of that which makes a woman ( laughter) you know what I mean …(nodding)
PINK SWEATER: Ma14 want real love and the experience elderly women have. They are tired of chasing after small girls.
BLUE JERSY: We know where and how to touch. We know where the live wires are ….(laughter)
RED JACKET :Eish! a few years back I had three students from a college I was teaching ask me out! I found it outrageous…
PINK SWEATER: Those are money suckers. They would bring more misery into your life.
One thing I like about younger men though is that they treat us better than our own husbands or our age mates!
BROWN JACKET: They know what is fore play. They can kiss and fondle your hanging breasts like they are the best breasts they have ever touched (clasps hands with lady in pink sweater).
PINK SWEATER: When you have a disagreement, he’s quick to say sorry. Where have you heard a Motswana man apologise to a woman?
Rather you will be forced to apologise even when you are right. But a le14, apologises without hesitation.
BROWN JACKET: (sipping on her cider)But these ma14 can be tiring at times, because they love night life.
PINK SWEATER: I have all the time for mine. (cell phone rings) that’s him calling (answers call).
PINK SWEATER: Please my dear finish doing my hair quickly because my le14 is coming for me, we have to dance the night away.
