·Today seemed like a typical day at the lab. I
spent the morning gathering samples from patients, then I moved to the back
where I helped run various tests. I was very busy from 8am until around noon.
As soon as noon hit, things became very slow. The lab guys had just finished
snacking on their lunch and I could see their energy level rising. Soon enough,
jokes were being said left and right, and laughter of all types filled the
room. They were all in such uplifting moods, it was hard not to laugh along with
them. They joked about each other, they joked with me, and mostly just laughed
at anything said. We spent nearly an hour just speaking about each others names
and how they all sounded funny. One gentleman is called Kwaku, but if you call
him Kwakuo is means bush-monkey. The name Charley here also has many uses,
except for as a name. Charley means slippers, it also means friend. We joked
around how Ghanaians essentially refer to their friends as a type of shoe. The
jokes went on and on and the laughter poured out of the room. It was a very
slow day, but the bored lab guys had turned the room into comedy central.
Before I knew it, it was time for me to head home.
