Laughfest #1

I shared three very special and awesome-feeling laughter fests with people here this week. It felt like the first real, genuine, out-of-breath laughter that I'd had here. It was GREAT! One was in my hut with N'arba, over something simple regarding my Hausa. She and I just cracked up because I so clearly didn't know what I was saying; ironically the word really is real; it's in my dictionary and it's supposed to mean PEANUT BUTTER, but according to N'arba, that is not true. Instead, it is hysterical. So, I learned a different, less funny word for peanut butter. Which I can buy, freshly pounded, in Konni.
