    And live from the Grif.net....

    SO HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE ADAPTING -- A missionary couple compiled this
    list of ways that a missionary can know if they're truly adapting to life
    on the mission field:

    1. You can't answer the question, "Where are you from?"

    2. You read National Geographic and recognize someone.

    3. You have a time zone map next to your telephone.

    4. You consider a city 500 km away to be "very close".

    5. You watch nature documentaries, and think about how good that animal
    would taste if it were fried.

    6. You can cut grass with a machete, but can't start a lawnmower.

    7. You speak with authority on the subject of airline travel.

    8. You read the international section before the comics.

    9. You have friends from or in 29 different countries.

    10. You sort your friends by continent.

    11. Fitting 15 or more people into a car seems normal to you.

    12. You refer to gravel roads as highways.

    13. You haggle with the checkout clerk for a lower price.

    14. You don't think that two hours is a long sermon.

    15. You marvel at the cleanliness of gas station bathrooms.

    Bonus - You think that a "foreign school" conducts classes in English.
