A Facebook user’s braai outfit recently went viral on social media.
Yes, a post by Siseko Cisco Mhlana has gone viral with over 3000 likes on Facebook since it was uploaded on 29 July.
“So at work yesterday I helped an Afrikaans gentleman and his wife buy some stuff as the family have just recently moved down from the North West and don’t have coastal attire,” he wrote in the Facebook post.
“Mind you he didn’t speak much English so I used my limited grasp of the Afrikaans language to make a very respectable sale. I pulled out all of the tricks, I called him ‘Oom’ and called his wife ‘Tannie’ – people I was on a roll.
“Then their daughter came in to get the car keys as she was at Spar. People I’ve never seen such an angel in my life,” he continued. “Deep blue eyes and freckles on olive tanned skin. Her face was hugged by beautiful long brown hair. I was weak at the knees. Long story short, what do you think of my outfit for the braai on Friday?
“Uit die blou van onse hemel,’Uit die diepte van ons see, Oor ons ewige gebergtes, Waar die kranse antwoord gee,” he concluded.
‘Lekker man, lekker!’
“Lekker man Lekker! Don’t forget the pocket knife…you’ll need for the biltong [sic],” one social media user later said on the post.
“You made my day Siseko, thank you for a bright moment in these uncertain times!” said another.
Others are hoping for an update after the braai:
“Bro, YOU ARE A LEGEND. Love the sense of humour. This world needs more of you.”
“Priceless. Keep us posted. I am keen to see how things develop post braai.”
