During the last FIFA World Cup Fiesta in South Africa, there was much use of the Vuvuzela – a special type of trumpet. It produced sounds like that of many bees. So much and deafening was the noise that some of the competing nations wanted the vuvuzela banned! FIFA and the LOC took firm stand and the vuvuzela was retained. After the World Cup, I experienced a special type of vuvuzela, one Friday night, on my way to London via the National Express coach. It was the last coach after 23.00 hours. We were all forced to sleep briefly or should I say we had naps. At a stage, one man started to blow a special type of vuvuzela from his mouth and nostrils! Our sleep / naps were disturbed and as I woke up, I remarked: ‘This is vuvuzela extra’. Majority of the travelers had been forced to wake up; so most of us laughed at the remark. Could you believe that the man never woke up, but continued blowing with increased intensity, with variations of tunes and tones? We discussed the World Cup briefly and imagined that the man might have been dreaming about the World Cup! I paid dearly for my disturbed sleep in London during the day. Please handle with care, if your friend, family member  or even spouse blows vuvuzela extra. Try to endure while you help him or her. As for that man, we were unable to help him, until the driver stopped for comfort break. That is vuvuzela extra for you. Handle with care!
