I turn 21 on Saturday. that´s weird. Happy birthday...
This week has been really weird. People who were progressing randomly went out of town and might not come back. God is testing my patience.
My american food cravings have been going through the roof. Some of the things I´m craving most are: Dorito taco supremes, stuffing, sour cream, velveeta with bacon bits or bread crumbs, pesto, steak, 7up instead of sprite, vegetables that aren´t soaked in vinegar, and MEXICAN FOOD. did you even think I would say I miss mexican food? well, I do. and It´s going to be a craving until I land in the Georgia airport in October. 1st stop, taco bell.
Peruvians tend to have odd remedies for sicknesses. This week I have heard:
1-- "drink hot coca cola"
2-- "drink hot celery water"
3-- "I conveniently have some shots I can just shoot into your bum cheek in the living room that will cure that common cold you have there." just.... no.
also, strange reasons why people believe I´m sick
1-- you ate ice cream
2-- your space heater. when you leave the warmth to the cold, you get sick... no. pretty sure if I sleep in the cold, I get sick.
3-- cuz It´s cold. (this is the excuse for EVERYTHING
4-- You didn´t wear a scarf one day.
pretty sure it´s the kid coughing in my food, but okay. I´ll stop using my space heater and see if it works. haha.
Well, I´m hoping this weird week of patience testing turns into a better one this week.
love, Hermana Allred
