Cultural Encounters

Two retirement-age gentlemen just came by offering to clean the mold off my outside house wall and trim the bushes for a very reasonable price. What’s really cute is that they have a flier where they advertise themselves as “husbands and fathers of over 35 years each and grandfathers.” What’s even nicer is that they both reacted to the news that I’m from Ukraine with “it’s a shame what those Russians are doing in your country,” which is more than our journalism students know about the region.

P.S. I obviously hired them.
