Pickle Me This

June 26, 2005


Two images that have stuck with me. I absolutely can’t remember where I read it, but the idea of someone who “collects good days like other people collect postcards.” And from Budapest by Chico Buarque- the idea that when the character returns to his home country, his newly learned Hungarian will be about as useful as his pocket-full of forints. I also like the way that Japanese people used to say the word “other country’s people” for “foreigner”. And the former student who emailed to say the pictures of me dancing at my wedding were “interesting.” Indeed. And you know you’ve been reading too much of Heat magazine when, you read the following headline- “Church hits at Zimbabwe deportations”, and you assume they are talking about Charlotte.
