A mistake and a tragedy

9 10 2009

Yes, that’s right…unfortunately today was filled with both those things. First, the mistake: I forgot to put on sunscreen. I know. How does a pasty white person possibly forget to apply sunscreen when they are in freaking Africa? Your guess is as good as mine. Either way, my skin is a little tender tonight.

And the tragedy: I ran out of M&Ms today. I’m only nine days into my stay here. Obviously my rationing skills are wanting.


I’m off to bed now – sunburned, chocolate deprived, yet still very content!

Oh, my. Not sure what’s worse – the sunburn or running out of chocolate. If it’s possible for me to ship you M&Ms today and it’ll get there before you leave, send me your address. Serious. I have a stash on hand.

rest well,

Haha! Thanks guys…and seriously I wish that were possibly. I fear they would arrive just as I was getting ready to leave, though.

I’m sending you mental m&m’s right now. Can you taste them? They’re delicious!
