DIMPLE’S BUA BASHING GROG!!
HAVING moved to the soccer mad town of Ba to work, I was first introduced to Dimple – a shopkeeper at Yalalevu (if the location is right as I am still trying to find my way around.)Anyway the shop is situated opposite the Ba Fire Station. Kinijoji a friend of mine from Bua took me there and advised me to always buy grog from Dimple as it is sold in grades – Grade 1 being the strongest. This particular Thursday evening, my tauvu from Bua Kinijoji and I went to get grog from Dimple’s and he bought $40 worth of Grade 1. We planned to spend the evening swiping grog and catch-up with our stories from here and there. I am not one who bothers about how strong the grog mix is. As long as its grog, lets taki! Well, after two basins my head was already spinning and not wanting to give up in the presence of my tauvu, I decided to forge ahead. I didn’t tell Kinijoji I was grog doped and in a daze, but uttered silent swears and blessings for Dimple’s grog and the one mixing it. I also later found that the grog was grown in Wainunu, Bua – I think Kinijoji wanted to Bua-Bash me with Dimple’s grog. Well fast forward a week later but on a Friday, I was invited by a friend Aluesi to attend mass and dinner at her place afterwards. On our way to her home after mass, I heard her mention to the driver to stop at Dimple’s so she could buy some grog. Karaik! my ears twitched at the sound of that name Dimple. They burst out laughing after I requested that she buy Grade 2 or Grade 3 grog as I almost crawled to bed after consuming that Grade 1 with Kinijoji. Lucky they took heed of my request and bought Grade 3. I managed to sit through the entire grog session and even made it to work early the next morning,alive and kickin’.
