Let me give you couple examples.

info private and then sell it

subject lines to their emails

guy who sells you a lemon of
a car, or people pulling scams
looking for up front payments,
who never show up to do the

So back to the story I was going
to mention to you that is going
to help build the relationship
I will call it “explosive”
You see, I was a Peace Corps
Volunteer from 1998-2000 in the
Solomon Islands, which is in the
These happy isles, had their moments
where I was not so happy, or feeling
You see, I usally prepared my own
food while I was there. I knew
whether the food was cooked well
enough to kill any harmful pathogen.
I trusted myself.
The question arose in whether I
trusted their cooking and the way
they handled their food.
Anyways, while I was there, I was
able to participate in a few feasts!
The look of those long rows of
banana leafs laid out with freshly
cooked wild pig, reef fish and
harvested river fern and baked
tapioca pudding, still brings
saliva running though my mouth.
The problem was though in who was
handling the food. It may have
been touched by a few people
Then it might have been sitting
for a while with flies hovering
over to get their take, while
students tried to fan them away.
Anyways, the food always appeased
my palate on the way down, though
I usually paid for it later.
You have all been there before…
The cramping, gas and pain.
Yeah, I had them all, but never
as bad as one night after hanging
out with the whole school.
As we sat watching a movie during
our Friday night entertainment (we
had generator run power a couple
hours each night in the jungle) I
started to feel the cramping coming
I suffered through the pain like
you probably have as well, until
I knew it was beyond the point I
should have stayed.
Things were moving in my intestines
like they never have before.
I felt that if I relaxed for even
one moment, there would be an
extremely embarrassing momemt on
I was not relaxed in any sense of
I was able to leave the area where
students were, calling it a night
and headed back to my house.
I never made it in time…
The cramps got so bad, that I
litterally could not take another
step without feeling as though
my inner life was going to launch
out of me.
The sweats came and I tried
to breath slowly…no luck, but the
cramping temporarily subsided.
I started to walk up the hill and
the next wave came even more intense.
The hill had a little ridge path, with
some depressed areas on the side of
There came my welcomed relief.
As this rush of sweat, nausea and
cramping overcame me and I could not
squeeze hard enough to keep from
blowing, I was able to drop my shorts.
That’s what I will call it…I had
so much blow out of me, that I felt
ill thinking about it.
I am thankfull for the fact that
I was in the middle of the jungle
and there were no lights lining
the path to my house.
I quickly pulled the short back on
and made the additional 100 or so feet
to my house where I proceeded to clean
up and go to bed in pain.
Off the top of my head, I do not remember
how long I felt ill after my explosive
episode (I have to go back and read my
journals to get my dates straight) though
this is something I will never forget.
We even had a running joke amongst the
Peace Corps VOlunteers, that “You were
never really a volunteer until you crapped
I had officially made it in more than one
Now, hopefully I didn’t gross you out
or turn you off too much.
My whole point in doing this was to
share a little of myself and let you

I am not one to sugar coat things.
