UPDATE - April 28, 2008

April 28, 2008

Anna is a philanthropic community social worker.

Man is a homeless person looking for food.

Ding, ding (not a doorbell, we have an actual tiny bell with a long string attached to the knocker inside the bell).

“uhhhhhUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” (Anna moaning in bed)

ting, ting, ting!

Finally Anna gets up and goes to the door.


Hello, Madame, do you have any canned food you can spare? I’m hu—


Hello, Madame, do you have any canned foo—

I heard you. Do you know what time it is?

I don’t have a watch or food but if you could give either one, especially some food--

You don’t know what time it is?

No, but do you have some---

No, honestly, do you know what time it is?

Do I know what?

It’s 7:30 in the morning.

Which morning are you talking about? Today?

It’s 7:30 in the morning, hey?

Yes, Madame, do you have any cann—

NO, I do NOT have any food for you. Come back at a decent hour.


Hi, again, I’ve had troubles with updates, so you’ll probably see this one close to a few others. So they will be slightly shorter and less socially analytical, but hopefully you’ll enjoy them. Oh, the Scorpions were disbanded (I mentioned the debate raging on in a previous update). Unrelated, because I'm becoming closer to people since the camp, someone asked Bronwyn (the children’s administrator) if I was available; I'm pretty sure it was a mistake or maybe Bronwyn was being sarcastic when she was relating the story and saying in a loud authoritative voice that I was OFFLIMITS. Another girl who is helping with the Thursday dinners for 5 different courses (Marriage/Alpha/First Steps (follow-up to famous Alpha Course)/Joining Course/Counseling Course) said she knew me and had seen me at church. I thought it strange because I was not a visible person at church (leading worship, preaching, ushering, etc.). But somehow she noticed me. She said I was handsome in the context of a conversation. She did the first HIV/AIDS 4 day training course that I was not allowed to take because of my lecturing duties.
