okay. i'll type as fast as i can. i haven't really updated in a while. i've got about 15 minutes or so here at work. here goes:
i met a man on the bus who speaks: oromo(sp?), amharic, english and polish. he thought polish could NOT be learned except in poland. he said books don't work for that language. do they work for any language? *shruge* you have to do SOMETHING until you get to the country where your desired language is spoken, no? at any rate. this guy works as an interpreter. he left africa, lived in poland then moved here. he was fascinated that i live with eric and there's no sex involved. he explained this would not happen in africa. it made me wonder at how good i've been in the past at being friends with the men in my life and how there are more times that i'm *grateful* for the lack of complications that sex would have wrought on our relations with each other.
damn it. more later. on this subject. promise. i don't know how i get into such personal conversations w/random people...
