more about my apache friend
i almost forgot. one of the funniest things that happened during my visit with my new apache friend is that when he was telling me this story about how he and his chubby wife never actually got married but they've been together for 25 years so they're legally considered married, he stopped in the middle of a sentence and said "oh i have that same shirt only mine's a sweatshirt." and i was wearing the weirdest shirt i own. it's this shirt that molly gave me. it says "israel" but it's spelled out in drawings of camels and umbrellas and jews. and i almost NEVER wear it outside of my apartment because a) i've never been to israel; b) i don't want to seem like i'm mocking israelis; c) i don't want to give palestinians an excuse to attack me; and d) it's a weird shade of grey.
