>Today I was walking through the day market when I slipped on some fish guts and managed to catch myself before falling, but not before splashing in a puddle of pig blood.
I looked down at my feet which were immersed in about an inch of blood and thanked God that I was wearing shorts and flip flops because the clean up would be easy.
I also thanked God that I didn’t drop my bags of shopping and at this point, I started to laugh. The following is a list of items in the bags I was carrying.
- 3 bags of fried crickets
- 1 bag of fresh maggots
- 1 freshly cut chicken head
- 1 pig stomach
- 1 bag of pig intestines
- 1 bag of pig lungs and other various parts
- 1 bag of pig skin
- 1 live catfish
I laughed as I stepped out of the puddle of blood and said out loud, “I love my life.” And I wasn’t being sarcastic. When I am old and gray and my mind is going, I hope that I still remember this time of my life because I live an adventure!
After leaving the market I drove to Sharon’s house for our weekly prayer time. Upon arriving at her house, I realized that I didn’t plan well and there was no way I could leave the bags of awfulness sitting in my car in 100 degree weather. So I knocked on her door and when she opened it I said, “Can I store my intestines in your fridge?”
Oh, the life I live…
