9.4.13

So this week, I ate this banana… And it was nasty, it’s like this weird banana that grows here that can only be eaten if it’s cooked, really weird, I don’t know what happens if you eat it raw, but you have to eat it cooked, and it’s the most disgusting thing ever, nay, the most disgusting thing ever is carbonated water. That’s just a dumb idea ย in itself.
So we teach this really old guy, and he’s at member’s house, who takes care of old people, and there is another old lady there, and she’s from one of the outer islands, and she can’t say my name, cause she only speaks Tahitian, (Pretty freaking sweet) And she’s just this old frail lady, and she gave me a name!! Te Horoa Here!! It means Charity Love… It also can mean Pity Love.. I’m going to assume that it means the first one, because it might be the second one, because she takes pity on me, cause my Tahitian isn’t exactly what one would call “fluent” yet. ๐Ÿ™‚ But nah, it’s pretty cool to have a different name. ๐Ÿ™‚
So we were at the same house teaching the same papi, (that’s what they call old men here) and this American lady, probably 70, comes barging in speaking in english, (she doesn’t speak any french or Tahitian, and she expects everyone to understand her, but gets mad when other’s speak either French or Tahtian to her.. Typical American) So she comes barging in, and she’s looking for the member that lives there, but she wasn’t there at the time, so she’s talking to the mami (that’s what they call old ladies) in english, and the mami just looks at us and she says in Tahitian “I don’t speak english” and just smiles, and anyway, long story short, we translated what was happening, and that was pretty cool.. The reason the American came in was because here brother in law died, (which was sad) and she NEEDED someone to watch over her cat. (which was hilarious).
As for conference, I was only able to watch sunday’s, but that’s okay, I’ll read it in the Liahona when it comes out. ๐Ÿ™‚ And there was a room where it was in French, one with Tahitian, and luckily, one in English. ๐Ÿ™‚ So I listened to it in English. ๐Ÿ™‚ Really cool. yup. Well, that’s all! Na Na!!
