I'm actually not really sure that we remembered to tell the Sudanese it was their first national election in over twenty years and that it was supposed to be contentious. They don't really seem to know. There were supposed to be angry protesters, we were given emergency supplies for when the shit hit the fan. So what did I see today, or for that matter, yesterday?? NOTHING DAMNITT!
I was promised an uprising!
Now how am I supposed to start all my conversations with, "No Shit! There I was..." when the rest of the sentence is "watching people line up in an orderly fashion to vote." That shit's just embarrassing!
WTF Sudan!? You couldn't even turn over one measly car?? Maybe light some trash on fire and yell arabic words really loud?? (Arabic always sounds like you're kinda angry.)
Now what am I supposed to say?? Did you ever think about ME Sudan?? Well, I certainly hope you enjoy your peaceful elections, Sudan! WHATEVER!
Anyway, so I'm all spouting my nonsense, trying to see if I can get Christina to look like maybe she could have been part of an angry mob and someone has to go and ruin everything with the comment:
You see that woman? She carries her house on her head, her baby on her back, and the future of her country in her hand. (about a nomad who showed up to vote)
WHO THE HELL THINKS OF ELOQUENT SHIT LIKE THAT TO SAY!?
Worst part? It was not me.
