precious

This is something that makes me smile whenever I think of it, and none of us has updated about it, I don’t think.

In Nepal, when Sarah was having her chronic insomnia, we all took naps while she had to just sit there and watch. But she was in a really good mood anyway. Right after, when we were walking around the neighborhood, she said serenely “Everything just seems to precious to me. Those kids at the school next door, you two sleeping, you were just lying there, so precious!” But just then she got cut off by tripping over a rat, and she hopped around a bit to miss stepping on it, interrupting herself “Oh oh my god, is that a dead rat?” But she recovered quickly to say fondly “That’s precious!”

Yes, it’s one of those hard to capture funny-things, but it will make ME laugh to read later, and that’s what’s important here.

i'm one of sarah's old friends from tx, and it's probably because i know her- but you totally captured her fun, slightly wonky, but inspired insomniac wisdom. she's amazing and i'm glad she has great people traveling with her over there.

I am so jealous that I was not there with ya'll. That is something that I will miss when I don't get to travel with you guys.

elizabethemily, i agree that sarah is awesome. we definitely appreciated having her on the trip with us, not just because of hilarious wonky insomnia-thoughts.
