Well, I kinda feel like I did not receive the appropriate amount of sympathy from my readers. (And when I say "readers" I mean my mommy and my daddy. . I heard nothing from them! I should have at least have received an "OMG! Are you okay?!? Does it hurt you? (yes, yes it does.) Please protect yourself from infection...(even though we all know it is unpossible to protect yourself from infection here because Africa is gonna touch you).") AND, to further exacerbate my ire, I did not receive one EVEN ONE email from my internet pharmacist offering me some kind of pharmaceutical sample pack to ease my pain.
NOT. EVEN. ONE.
Therefore, you're all going to pay. How you ask?? ... I'll tell you... .I'm attaching a PHOTO of my hideous burn that is all hurtey and making me not-so typey these days (and, for the record, THIS is why my work is shoddy...)
I KNOW!! How hurtey (and frankly, yucky) is that?! Obviously, I need some kind of pharmaceutical intervention. Africa has clearly touched it. It's not only hurtey, it's unsightly. And, on my right hand...therefore, I'm not so writey these days either.
Well, now that I feel that I have the approrpriate level of sympathy from you guys (and my mom feels really, REALLY bad for not asking how I am doing...whether I am getting on okay with my debilitating injury....I thought I should show you some of the good news stories from Khartoum.
Well, I only have one....here is our Christmas tree...... In all it's glory. And no, I will not be arrested, killed or have my house burned for having a Christmas tree. It's all good in the hood.
This week, I will make it my goal to document the (not right) Christmas Lights, decorations and dancing Santa's posted around Khartoum. If nothing else, it will show you the true meaning of how American Christmases are soooo much better than foreign ones. -- Even you Canada...don't think we don't know what you're up to...we've intercepted your slanderous (or is it libel, I can NEVER effing remember) letters to Santa. As such, I've went ahead and added you to the Axis of Evil -- we had an opening when Iraq left....Congrats!
