During the Kerls (Covenant mission’s Africa regional coordinators) recent visit, we did our best to host them well, but, you know, the best laid plans of mice and men…
John came down with what we now think was the flu while at our place, and of course we were trying to think of the worst case scenarios and gave him meds that he really didn’t need. He recovered nicely, but he had an interesting side effect that lasted quite some time even after he felt better. He had frequently recurring hiccups! I shared with him my favorite cure, that is after I was hopeful that he wasn’t going to toss his shoelaces anymore. Here he is, demonstrating:
You bend over and drink water from the opposite lip of a cup, at least a couple gulps, and the hiccups disappear! Not 100% effective, but at least in the 90’s! John was thrilled to be able to get rid of the nuisance, as they kept coming back. On our 10 hour or so truck trip to Yaounde last Friday, we had frequent hiccup and stretch stops. Smile.
Okay, so we arrive in the big city and the hostess with the mostest (me, ha!) realizes that she forgot to bring along some coffee, so Letha, the main coffee drinker in our group of 6 who shared the guest house lodgings, improvised:
Okay, Letha, how many USED teabags does it take to make a decently strong, read wannabe coffee, cup of tea?
