"Life in the Peace Corps will not be easy. There will be no salary and allowances will be at a level sufficient only to maintain health and meet basic needs. Men and women will be expected to work and live alongside the nationals of the country in which they are stationed—doing the same work, eating the same food, talking the same language. But if the life will not be easy, it will be rich and satisfying. For every young American who participates in the Peace Corps—who works in a foreign land—will know that he or she is sharing in the great common task of bringing to man that decent way of life which is the foundation of freedom and a condition of peace."

-President John F. Kennedy

New expression: “Got the $H!T scared INTO me!”

It’s nighttime, and unfortunately I felt a bowel movement coming on. Going out to the latrine when it’s dark sucks. Plain and simple. Tonight, though, it was especially dark and the hazy/fogginess made it so that even my headlamp didn’t shed much light. I was heading out there, like I said it’s about 50 yards away, and could hardly see a few feet in front of me. I got to the latrine and there were a bunch of cockroaches on the door. I stood there, creeped out already, wondering if I should go get some bug spray to fend them off or just barge in the door and hope they scatter, when all of the sudden a bat flew so close to my face that it just barely nicked me!

I no longer had to go, thus the coining of the expression, “Got the $H!T scared INTO me!”
