|Day 20 of 31 at TWT!|
P. grins. "Not exactly. Do you know why I wasn't here last practice?"
"No... we weren't there either. I was busy with school." Australian then, maybe?
"Well, I was in South Africa!" South Africa!!! Of all places in the world, I wouldn't have guessed that one!
As our alumni band post-practice pizza group chatters and laughs as usual, we all enjoy sampling three delicious kinds of South African cookies. One box of shortbread (one of my favorites!), another of a light, crispy plain cookie, and the third of chocolate-coconut sandwich cookies. All the way from South Africa! We also got to peek at exotic safari animals on P.'s iPhone: a rhinoceros chomping away on some plants, zebras, lions, and birds I couldn't begin to identify!
I whisper to Husband that next time we go somewhere special, we'll have to bring back local cookies for the pizza group. Such a fun way to experience a faraway place!
