We’re on the third day of the World Cup. And you’ve probably JUST realised that you have nothing interesting to say about any of the players, or the game. And you’re starting to get worried because you’ve started seeing some family members that you haven’t seen in years turn up at your door wanting to watch the football.
And you’ve wondered: WHAT AM I GOING TO TALK TO THEM ABOUT? WE HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON BESIDES AN IMAGINED MYTH ABOUT A TRIBE OR SOMETHING.
Don’t waste this opportunity to bond with complete strangers.
Here are 7 incredible adjectives you can use to make any random Somali person who is visiting your house think you know loads about Football. And Somali pop culture.
This is how it works. You take the name of a Footballer and then you say the word “Waa” and then you say one of these adjectives. It’s that simple. And before you know it, you’re being invited to their local maqaaxi to discuss Football. To impress them even more, begin all sentences with “walee…”
Disclaimer: These adjectives are not for the fainthearted.
