My favourite post from last week (20-26th) is from a blog that I have mentioned before, that I have been following for a long time, and is an incredible true story.
The Qur’an incident– My Walkabout
"You are not leaving until we get that book back."
"I don't have it with me."
"You lie. You will not leave here alive. We want the book."
During a trip to Kenya, William the blogs author, and a very experienced traveller, tries to buy a Qur’an to take home with him. The resulting story is fascinating, and terrifying at the same time, and as I read it, I actually felt scared for his safety. This post could easily be the plot for a movie. I loved it, and I know you will when you read it.
WTF Fun In The Sun – about last weekend
“It's the next morning and we're on the beach. It hasn't rained for a year in Maui and now it's pissing down. Mother finger.”
I only discovered this blog because the author left a comment on one of my posts. I went over to have a look and leave a comment, but instead found one of my favourite funny posts of the last week. Holidays and children are a difficult mix. It can be heaven, it can be hell, and it can also be very funny.
Bar etiquette for those with rookie livers - Author Phil Torcivia's Blog
“ The two attractive ladies standing behind you do not want to have sex with you. In fact, they’re scanning your scalp for evidence of hair plugs and colouring.”
I feel cheeky to even mention Phil’s blog, and once again refer to my comments at the beginning of this weeks 7DOB. Phil Torcivia is a divorced man who transplanted himself from Pennsylvania into the treacherous dating pool in Southern California, and I love his blog. He doesn’t need any support from someone like me, but I‘ve chosen him this week because this post made me smile just when I needed it – thanks Phil.
