Today we started learning numbers. Estonian numbers are relatively easy (when compared with the rest of the language). So now I can count...sort of. Which means, I can play bingo!
Okay, I am not really into bingo...I was raised Catholic, so the bingo gene is probably in there somewhere, but perhaps it will only emerge once I am a retiree.
But we played in class today with our new numbers, and it was pretty fun. And I won twice, largely because even though both times there was a tie, I have a faster (bigger? Don't answer that) mouth.
Also in class today, I learned that I am not as anonymous as even I think I am.
Oh I know I have joked (half seriously) that how many lesbian, American Indian, former archaeologist, PD-coned officers from South Carolina can there be in the State Department (my guess is one). And friend's will sometimes tell me they liked a particular post I've written (especially the ones who are also Facebook friends, because they can see the blogposts there). But today, one of my classmate's had a friend stop by the class. I introduced myself to her.
And she said, "Oh, I read your blog."
And I had never before met this person in my life.
