I’ve mentioned before how much I love Thursdays nights. Akko Art Gallery is a safe place for me to share life with wonderful people.
Petula is the woman who opens her home up to the ladies from church week after week. A couple things I love about her: 1) She’s a “give it to you straight” kinda gal, and 2) she’s hilarious! I come from a funny family so I value a good sense of humour. If you make me laugh you are in my Book of Awesome People!
Here are a couple of conversations from last Thursday that had me laughing:
Discussing the “next steps”
Me: You think that’s a bad excuse to not go home?
Petula: I didn’t say that. I said it wasn’t a good excuse.
Me: [Throw my hands in the air dramatically.] I don’t know where I belong!
Petula: Welcome to Bangkok! [Turns to I-Hsuan.] I-Hsuan, who are you?
I-Hsuan: [Looks up from her plate. Shrugs. Shakes head.] I don’t know.
Petula: [Turns to Michelle.] Michelle! What are you? Thai? American?
Michelle: I don’t know.
Me: So in other words, I’m right where I belong.
Petula: I don’t know about that. There are a lot of weirdos in Bangkok.
[Sidenote: I have a pretty good understanding of who I am as well as my gifts and skills, it’s more a question of where I live that out.]
Sharing our praises (things we’re thankful for) from the past week
I-Hsuan: Remember my birds?
I-Hsuan: They died.
Petula: We don’t judge each other’s praises.
Looking forward to more laughing and sharing in the weeks to come!
