Mabunde

Growing up in the double 0’s, we all played police and robber, we’d all look for long curvy sticks to use as guns. We obviously didn’t call them glocks, choppers or any other fancy words, mabunde was the name. Honestly, that was the last time I ever thought I’d encounter mabundes.

What if, just what if, people told the truth? Not once in a while, not just for the big things, not half-truths and shady truisms but the pure open (most likely hurtful) truth.
