IgnorANCE is Bliss...

I’ve lately been ignoring some of the younger kids who visit my place. Not that I mean to be rude, but I just don’t feel like being polite. They come knocking, running all over my yard, and looking at me, asking me for crayons and things, which is fine, except that I don’t have crayons and things and I never had crayons and things and I don’t know how to say “I don’t have crayons and things.” Usually, it ends up with me sitting there with the kids for a while until they get the message. But lately, it’s just me coming out saying something in Setswana, saying something in English and then coming back inside to continue whatever it was I was doing while they stand outside looking confused. I’m pathetic…
