Peace Corps Week

 

 

***

 

 

Checking out of the grocery store, I noticed the bag boy eyeing my two adopted children. They often draw scrutiny, since my son's a blond Russian, while my daughter has shiny black Haitian skin.

The boy continued staring as he carried our groceries to the car. Finally he asked, "Those your kids?"

"They sure are," I said with pride.

"They adopted?"

"Yes," I replied.

"I thought so," he concluded. "I figured you're too old to have kids that small."

The board of education in a nearby town sold off a building that had been a one-room schoolhouse. The buyer converted it to a tavern. One day an elderly man was walking by the place with his grandson and pointed to the building.

"That's where I went to school when I was your age."

"Really," said the boy. "Who was your bartender back then?"

It was the first day of basketball practice at Wingate high school in Brooklyn, N.Y. Coach Jack Kaminer handed a ball to each player. "Fellas," he said, "I want you to practice shooting from the spots you might expect to be in during the game."

The No. 12 sub immediately sat down on the bench and began arcing the ball toward the basket.

New to the United States, I was eager to meet people. So one day I struck up a conversation with the only other woman in the gym. Pointing to two men playing racquetball in a nearby court, I said to her, "There’s my husband." Then I added, "The thin one—not the fat one."

After a slightly uncomfortable silence she replied, "And that’s my husband—the fat one."

I was waiting at a small train station when a man put up a sign regarding my train:

“30-Minute Delay.”

“What happened?” I asked.

“The train went off the rails,” he said.

“How long will that take to fix?”

“Quite a few hours.”

“So why put up a sign saying it would take 30 minutes?”

“It’s the only sign we have.”
