Thursday after work I ventured to my first haircut in Uganda! The nice Indian man did an excellent job. It wasn’t what I was picturing but he knew what he was doing and I am quite pleased!
When Mary and I were paying for our dinner an hour later the waitress handed me a slip of paper. It was from someone named Eric with his phone number and email address asking if we could please be friends. I guess I was not the only one pleased with my new look. (I have not contacted him).
In a condition similar to Samson’s, I must have lost my strength with my hair. I have been out of commission since Friday night due to a nasty fever/flu bug that has been going around (details withdrawn. Welcome to Africa.) Unfortunately my illness caused our group to cancel the “Lethal Luau” murder mystery on Friday night and I had to miss celebrating with our beautiful attorney, Geri, who got married yesterday. What a bummer weekend to be sick.
I am feeling better after a day and a half of continuous rest and Modern Family episodes. Today I even showered and washed some laundry (by hand–yep, that’s how we roll). And I may even venture out of the house…!
Happy advent to you all.
