Chicken in a Bag



Today was exciting!  After training today I was called into the office by my friend Poppy.  He started explaining that he wanted me to have Pepper Soup (which I had previously told him I liked).  We mostly eat international food here at the team house, not African food.  So I was not exactly sure what he was wanting.  Initially, I thought he was going to invite me to dinner.  Would be great, except that I would not have been able to due to transport for returning home.  So...as we were talking he pointed over towards the wall.  There, in a plastic bag, was the beginnings of my pepper soup....my very own chicken in a bag!  

It's very honoring that he would even try to find a way for me to have pepper soup and I know it was a sacrifice for him to buy the chicken.  Freaked me out as I picked it up....I was waiting for it to peck my hand.  However, it is very well-behaved.  It traveled home with me by car and I'm still not sure yet what I will do with it.  I was going to name it, but in the event that I do eat it, I don't think I could eat something I've named.  

Enjoy...

Lucy is still doing well. Althought, she may be a bit traumatized, she ate chicken today- it was actually the kittens food- but you know Lucy...always pecking away at their food.

hi, i'm also an OT and considering applying to volunteer with the New Steps vs onboard the Africa Mercy Ship. I would love to hear a little more about what you do as an OT, trying to see where I would be able to maximize my skills. Thanks! eunice
