#thirdworldproblems

I don't Twitter. I don't Instagram. I don't Snapchat. 
I do old-fashioned things like Facebook, Skype, text, and email. And, of course, blog.
I have noticed the #hashtag phenomenon and, to be honest, it just cracks me up.
Hipsters making normal life sound cool.
But truth be told, my posts would be misplaced and more than a little weird.
So here is short a list of my possible #thirdworld posts.

Power has been out for 20 hours and we just ran out of candles. #thirdworldproblems
Giving blood 3 months after having malaria is a bad idea. #thirdworldanemia
Nothing starts my morning like finding worms in a leg wound. #thirdworldsicknesses
Went to take a shower and found no water. #thirdworldbodyodor
Extra load of laundry today after getting peed on while doing therapy with some kids. #thirdworldnurse
Spent an hour watching kids try and catch a crab in a canal. #thirdworldentertainment
Trees growing on the salt flats! #thirdworldjubilee

Continue to post away, #firstworlders, just avoid showing me pictures of your food. It is nothing less than torture to see photos of your pizza, salads, and ICE CREAM.

Green is coming to Jubilee!
Gardening lessons with Anne.
Giving some blood to stock the hospital up for Karnival.
