Olympic Records

Achana na Phelps ama Bolt (OK Usain was something special), jana was at my pal's wedding and having been part of the committee, I'm couldn't recall any show of affection between them, even a hug. But when the pastor gave the green light, it seemed that in the spirit of Olympics, they had planned to go long distance (Kenyan speciality) on the kissing thing.

Second by Second analysis:

1-2 And they're off, no hesitation or fumbling, smooth take off.
3-4 The crowd erupts with screams and ululations.
5-6 The screams hit the peak and they are still at it.
7-8 The ululations rival the NSE in hitting rock bottom.
9-10 Discomfort settles in, engaging your neighbour in small talk about the weather seems like a good idea, or for the parents to engage their children in any form of conversation to distract them from the unfolding drama.
11-12 The pastor attempts to play down the issue by remarking "It's their day, they should enjoy it."
13-14 Eish, hawajamaliza?? Time to fish out your cellphone and check your balance, just find something to fiddle with.
15-16 And they are done, with huge grins on their faces:-)

All in all, it was an interesting experience, you should have seen the look on the older folks faces! But what better way to celebrate the bond of marriage?
