Granny for president.

Hi All.

A cloud followed me to work today.
No-one else appeared to have their windscreen wipers on.
Is this an omen?
Could be that I washed my hair just before leaving.

I am very depressed.
I have realised that I can never be the president of this country.
The end of a dream.
I just don’t qualify.

It is not my age.
Most presidents appear to be old.
Not in the UK or in America but defintely here.
You don’t have to be attractive.
Or slim.
So far so good.

However….I did a comparison between myself and President Zuma.

Zuma has had five wives.
He is apparently planning to marry two more this year.
One wife committed suicide.
One divorced him.
Those were the bright ones.
For the overseas readers let me point out that, if he marries two more, he will have FIVE wives.
At the same time!

I have had three husbands.
At different times.
They didn’t even overlap.

Zuma is expecting his 21st child.
No…that is not a missprint.
Twenty one kids.
Probably a whole heap of grandkids.
I just can’t compete.
My four kids pale into insignificance.

Zuma has been up on a rape charge.
I have never raped anyone.
I have never even been accused of raping someone.
I am so boring.

Zuma spent years in and out of court on corruption charges.
I suppose I could do something about that.
Any offers?
The charges are still hanging around somewhere but he is too busy
making babies being president to go to court.
You have to love this country.

I would have made a good president.
I would have banned nepotism.
Only as it would have prevented me from EVER working with one of my offspring.
I could go on but I need coffee.
And, I should do some work.

Have a super day all.
