Things fall back apart…

Standard

I went to lunch at a friend’s house on Saturday.  We cooked, ate, had a good time and I made it back home around 7:30pm.  On my way in, I stopped to talk to Grandma as usual.  We were having a pretty normal conversation except that she kept insisting that I go to bed soon.  As many 84 year-olds to, she had taken a nap that day, and had gotten up after dark.  To her, it was 7:30 am.  She thought I’d been out all night and just got back before the break of dawn.  Apparently, this is what she thinks I do every weekend, staying out all night, doing heroin and god knows who.  I’m surprised she’s not more scared of me.  Hmm, how to fix, how to fix.  You know, I might just go with it!

土曜日は訓練中のホームステー家族の家に行って過ごした。ご飯を作って、食べて、お喋りして夜7:30位に帰宅した。下に住んでいるおばあさんが起きていたのでいつものように話しに行った。会話は結構普通だったけどやたらに「早く寝なさい」と言われた。どうも、おばあさんは昼寝をして起きたら暗かったので朝の7:30だと思っていたようだ。なので、僕は朝までパーティーして、朝明け前にやっと帰ってきたと思われていた。これはシンハラ語をどれだけ頑張っても治せないこと。なので思われっぱなし。しかも、毎週金土日で繰り返してると思っている。もっと怖がれてないのが不思議だ。どうやって治そう?このままでもある意味面白いかな?
