Bee in the house...

…and other African beliefs…
A bee has been flying into the house and circling me as I have my coffee.
Will I have visitors today?
Do these beliefs hold true?

There is also the belief that when a bird crashes into your house window and dies, there will be a demise in the family. Shait. Surprisingly I learned about this, not from an African, but from a crime documentary involving former Kentucky Governor Luis B. Nunn and his Son.

A girlfriend from Murang’a used to get an itchy palm in the morning whenever she expects some cash, even that which she was unaware of or not expecting. She would get the cash at most two to three days after experiencing the itchy palm. At times the same day!

Strange!

That itchy palm thing happens to me too, and I’ve never been disappointed.

@gashwin, that bee just loves your sweet coffee.
