Why we'll never be normal

Guys, it's getting all sorts of real up in this blog, because well, that's the life of a Peace Corps Volunteer in a third world country.

So lets not tell Hal that I posted this for everyone to see. It was just too good not to share.

He was checking his e-mail and was bummed that he had no new he e-mailed himself. No joke.

Hi Hal,

You know, it's been so long since we've corresponded!! I miss you so
much. We are good, good friends. Man, every time I think of the good
times we had together, I just get this silly grin on my face. Like,
dang: we actually did that? Really, we did.

So, lately, I've been chickin my email, and guess what? Nobdoy likes
me neither. So let's stick together, you and me. Just us two, gonna
beat the odds. (make sure your wife doesn't read this, she'll git
jealous about our plans.)


I'm pretty sure I need to start a segment called "Why we'll never been normal after Peace Corps" filled with the ridiculous things we do that are normal to us. 

So the Moral of this story is E-mail your PCV, or Missionary, or friend living out of the country...but mostly e-mail your PCV because they have a lot of free time and need something to take their mind of the freaking heat.

Oh man, bless his heart--that's just too funny.

Of course, having been a missionary, I can perfectly relate.

Here's hoping to lots of new mail for you both coming soon!
