This week has been crazy for us!
Setback #1: We were walking back from the chapel on Tuesday, back to our flat, when this border collie comes charging out, with it’s owner close behind. Sister Kuhn thought it was just going to try to run in the road or something, so she tried to corral it back. It dodges her, and comes up behind me and bites me on the inner thigh! Apparently it is a rescue dog and isn’t very good around people. It accidentally slipped out the door unaware to the owner until it was too late. So this lady is like really posh, and can’t apologize enough. She gives us a tour of her garden/house in return for the dog attack. She informs us that she is high Church of England, so chances are she never would have given us the time of day if her dog hadn’t mangled my leg. We went to the walk in center later that night because the zone leaders freaked out and told me I needed a tetanus booster (false) but they did give me antibiotics so I guess better safe than sorry.
Setback #2: On Saturday night we were headed out to the car to go and exercise at the chapel the last hour of our day. So we are in pretty grubby clothes…just remember that for later. When we had headed out the door of our flat, for some reason through miscommunication we both thought the other person had the keys. So we get out to the car and are both looking at the other person to magically pull the keys out. Then we realized our error. Apparently our locks on our door are the best in the business and you basically have to break the door down to get in. So we called the landlord, but he wasn’t going to be back in town until Sunday afternoon. Also did I mention we were supposed to teach Primary and relief society the next day? Anyway luckily the Crawfords came to our rescue and we stayed there for the night. It was probably the most unusual Sunday on our missions.
So we’ve had an interesting week…and I hear that bad things come in threes so I’ll probably have another story for you next week!
Love, Sister Z
