Maybe I'll Move to Botswana . . .

I've been reading the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith on and off for the past couple of years. I love these books. I love how the protagonist, Mma Ramotswe, is so down to earth and practical. It's soothing reading. Just yesterday, during a break at traffic school (don't speed, people) I read a passage that so spoke to my soul I've been thinking about it all day.

Mma Potokwane is the head of the local orphan farm in Gabarone, Botswana and she is "traditionally built". It says, "All the women in her family had been that build and it had brought them good fortune and success; there was no point, she felt, being a thin and unhappy person when the attractions of being a comfortable person were so evident. And men liked women like that too." Amen sister! I think I could really embrace the idea of being a "comfortable" person -- even if it means moving to Botswana. Brent, are you with me? (You know it's what you really want . . . )
