The Final Farewell – With Johnathan Boynton-Lee

Jonathan-Boynton-Lee-and-Simba-Mhere

I’M NOT MUCH OF A DRINKER at all. I think I drank enough in my college days to last a lifetime, and I have spent the better part of my 20s and 30s detoxing. However, looking back, my “favourite drinks” have always been more about the moments shared with special people, than what I was actually drinking. One of the most memorable moments was definitely with Simba, the last weekend before he died. We were all away at Hartbeespoort Dam, having sundowners down by the water. Laughing, singing, dancing, being kids like we always were. I can’t remember what whisky we were drinking, but we always drank whisky together. The sun set, and we made our way back to the house. Our friends had gone ahead, and Simba and I stayed behind like the two naughty school-kids at the back of the bus. So much had been made about our bromance, so we decided to have some fun with it. I grabbed my phone, and we made a little “bromantic” movie trailer while the sun was setting. He’d lm me, and I’d lm him doing the craziest things. We had never laughed so much in our lives, rolling on the ground like kids. That night, we all went out to this dodgy, little bush pub, where we all danced the night away. I remember our last whisky that night. We were in the middle of our infamous Running Man dance routine, having endeared ourselves to the locals, taking over the entire dance floor. We clinked our glasses together. I told him he was my brother, and I loved him. That would be the last time that I saw him. Four days later, he was gone. I’m so thankful that we spent his last weekend together, surrounded by friends and so much love. That last whisky we had together, his final farewell, will always be my favourite drink.
