Christmas In a Nutshell
Last night, Andrew and Cosette hosted a gift exchange for those of the potluck crew who are still in Cairo. It was a hilarious string of gag gifts. Apparently, I should drink more and cry less: Andrew and Cosette both bought me alcohol for Christmas, and Erin got me a pacifier since I’m a notorious crier in my class!
Tonight, Rachel invited us all over to her place for another Christmas tradition: cookies! I thought we’d just be over for a couple hours … but we ate dozens of cookies for hours and hours, topped off with Yemeni take-out for dinner! Not your conventional Christmas, but a great way to spend a holiday with friends!
