Something Funny, Something Wonderful, Something Lovely

First, something funny. Today I saw a woman with absolutely enormous breasts wearing a t-shirt that said "Big Rack Billiards." I'm just going on context clues here, but I think the joke was unintentional.

Second, something wonderful. OH MY GOD I´M SO EXCITED!!!! I can hardly sit still, I keep jumping up and down and squealing. It´s probably too early to celebrate, but I just met with a health researcher at the archive and she´s going to put me in touch with DORA MARIA TELLEZ! As in Comandante Dos in the Frente Sandinista! As in the Minister of Health in the 80s!! Squeeeeeeee!!! The ball is really rolling, as I have several interviews set up already, and now THIS! OK, i really should calm down, this can´t be good for my health. Oh, but i can´t, I´m so happy that I don´t even care what a disaster area the humidity is making out of my hair. Yayayayayyyy! Oh, please please let this all work out.

And finally, just because you deserve it, here is something beautiful. It's the outside of a pitaya (dragon fruit). Insides to follow at later date.

Yay! Comandante Dos! When you mentioned it to me in our chat, I thought it was going to be a list of Do's and Don'ts for Comandantes. That would have been hilarious, but this is even better!!

I know!! I can't believe I get to interview this lady. Talk about crashing through the glass ceiling.

Well, I think that the t-shirt was about as unintentional as the clients who disrobe before I get a chance to leave the room.

Nah, this was a poor lady selling mangoes on the side of the street in Managua. I'm going to bet on not intentional in this case!
