Please return home unannounced, Jehue
I am making an impassioned plea to Jehue and by extension his coach, Dr Hypolite. When you decide to come back home do so without announcing the date and time. Come home quietly. Let them plan whatever they want, just slip in. That is the measure to adopt in order to avoid flag-waving and pan music and the airport wining that will be waiting in hordes to greet you. After getting through that first hurdle, comes the second one, that is, the expected prizegiving.
They will want to give you ham, lamb and jam. Of course you cannot refuse it but find excuses not to go. You could be feeling under the weather, or you could be going to a family gathering, anything, but do not go. Ask your mother (“Dip your neck, son”—bless her) to represent you at all these functions designed mainly to project first themselves and then you. That way you will avoid the prospect of losing your focus, which is most likely towards Olympic gold. I am begging you please, pretty please, stay clear of the drama. See where our recent successes are and learn. Please help him, Dr Hypolite.
