Long Story short… but what do you think of Siseko’s outfit for the braai on Friday?


KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa (07 August 2020) – We don’t think Siseko Cisco Mhlana knew that his post would go viral and land up on our desk, but we are thankful for his sense of humour.

South Africans have a way of getting through the toughest times, usually with a side dish of humour, and his writing is on point.

His post has been shared thousands of times. Once you’ve read it, you’ll see why:

So at work yesterday I helped an Afrikaans gentleman and his wife buy some stuff as the family have just recently moved down from the North West and don’t have coastal attire.

Mind you, he didn’t speak much English, so I used my limited grasp of the Afrikaans language to make a very respectable sale. I pulled out all of the tricks, I called him “Oom” and called his wife “Tannie”, people I was on a roll.

Then their daughter came in to get the car keys as she was at Spar. People I’ve never seen such an angel in my life.

Deep blue eyes and freckles on olive tanned skin. Her face was hugged by beautiful long brown hair. I was weak at the knees.

Long Story short what do you think of my outfit for the braai on Friday??

“Uit die blou van onse hemel,’
Uit die diepte van ons see,
Oor ons ewige gebergtes,
Waar die kranse antwoord gee,”
