You got me World Market
Oh yeah, I was minding my own business and boom, there was our juice from our time in Uganda. Again, I short circuit for a moment... if you know the movie, Rango, there is a character named Beans. She is a lizard and would freeze up periodically saying it was a defense mechanism. Maybe that is a part of culture shock.
When I look at this juice box, I have these thoughts...
I love South Africa (where this is from).
I paid big money for this in Uganda because it is an import and pre-made.
I often felt guilty for spending money on luxuries.
I love Uganda which makes you slow down.
I miss my friends and making passion fruit juice.
This box is way cleaner and nicer than what we got in Uganda.
And I stand there for a moment with all of these thoughts. Then I grabbed it and became super grateful for all of our experiences. I pray for all of the inequality and for my friends. I surprised my children with a blast from the past. My oldest especially remembered and was excited. It was fitting because we were having breakfast tacos for dinner and we also had that for a treat in Uganda. We shared some memories.
More sneaky culture shock.
