Some things are universal…

KleenexLast week I watched a baby have an absolute blast for a half hour shredding a piece of kleenex.  I was on a long bus trip-it gave me something to do.  It reminded me of my niece doing the same thing.  Watching that made being here seemed a little less strange – kids everywhere like to tear tissue!  It also made me a little homesick…I never did get to see my niece unroll a whole thing of toilet paper, and she’ll be far beyond that the next time I get home.  This is making me sniffle a little bit, guess I’d better go find my own kleenex to shred.

One thought on “Some things are universal…

  • It’s easy to think about Africa and imagine nothing but differences. It’s nice to read about the unexpected similarities.
    hooray for babies!
