So, I had to stay an extra three days in Niamey because the airport staff are on strike. I went out to find some soap and the only thing I could find was this "Lendemain Difficile" or, "The Next Day is Difficult"...Anti-hangover soap. I haven't been drunk in well over 20 years, but where was this stuff when I was 15? Notice the back side, soap+man=woman to the second power (or squared)...what does that mean? Anyway, it promises to save your morning and bring you back to life after a short and restless night! Maybe Peace Corps should purchase this in bulk! It smells like lemons by the way...

Axe... New in the US
Axe products are new here, and the marketing is that the ladies flock to men who use it. Perhaps that's what the soap+man=woman (squared). There's one commercial where the women physically STICK to men who use the body spray. *gag* PS, I think I want somma those Obama britches.

They have similar commercial here in the US.

Give me a break!
But, I guess that somewhere out there some lazy unemployed guy is sitting on his couch eating Doritos and sees that commercial and hope is restored! Even he can afford the three bucks for the soap that will answer all his prayers! No longer in Mali and I haven't seen the britches here, but if I run across any I'll pick you up a pair! :)

Isn't it fantastic! Every day is a new adventure! Even the smallest errands can reveal the greatest of discoveries!
