I was listening to a Freakonomics podcast yesterday about garbage. Stephen Dubner is on the phone with a study abroad student in Taiwan, poking fun at the fact that the "poor kid" has to listen for the trash truck to beep so that he can run outside with his refuse. What a preposterous idea, right? I'm sure you can sense my sarcasm, because for reasons then unknown I was offended by Mr. Dubner's cackles.
It was a sudden, but friendly reminder, that I have taken to calling Guatemala my home.
So, I guess I'll forgive you, Stephen.
PS. We're recording Program Director interviews for Kat, Hudson, and Ginny next week and we need your help. We want to ask them questions they never saw coming. So if you have any funny stories, inside jokes, or completely random questions for any of them, send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can write them as a comment to this blog post.
