Barbara's Random Thoughts

Quote of the week

On Wednesday, driving to Granny's house in Soshanguve, we pass a group of schoolgirls. Doug waves at them, and they wave back. The following conversation ensues.

Barbara: Do you know those girls?
Doug: No, I waved because I thought one of them was Pretty.
About 20 seconds pass, in which I totally accept this statement, knowing exactly what Doug meant. Then I start laughing, realizing how his comment would have sounded in any other context. See, we know a girl whose name is "Pretty." I love African names...=)
