Nationality Varieties

I work with someone from India, two from Portugal and one from New Zealand.

All four are lovely people, but I do enjoy hearing some of their questions, some of their thoughts.

This morning Chandu and I were chatting while we were waiting for a patient and I mentioned Mum & Dad in passing.  He said that he hadn't wanted to upset me, but was concerned with how I was coping now they had dissappeared.  That was a phrase I found unusual, although later it actually helped me think about what I do miss about them.

Mind you, it works both ways as they all either get confused, or laugh about some of my phrasings.
