The Amnesia Special

You know how in old TV shows, they always have a time where the writers and the actors get lazy? The solution is to have Gilligan get amnesia or BA Barrackus have some horrible injury that causes him to be in a coma. Everyone gathers around and remembers things about them that of course allows them to play clips from old shows to fill up the hour.

Well, I’m not feeling lazy, but I am feeling tired. I just flew in from Kenya less than 24 hours ago, and I’m not feeling profound or witty. So this is my amnesia special. The material is not old, it’s all from the most current trip. But it does allow me to not think very hard about what I’m writing. So gather ’round my hospital bedside and wait for me to wake up, and remember the things about my trip through these pictures (which I can thankfully edit now that I’m home.)
