So after my last post, y'all (ha, my Texas roots!) showed a lot of interest in how Poles dress.
And I was all set to start making fun of Poles (which always sounds totally wrong, but the Polish words are Polak for men, which is kind of derogatory in English, and Polka for women - which is a kind of dance/music from...Czech - seriously).
Then I came down with a really bad stomach virus. The second one I have had in two months.
Then today, I learned that a very dear (Polka) friend of mine has cancer. She runs her own business and has asked me to fill in for her while she has surgery and recuperates. So today did not seem like the best day to make fun of Poles.
But worry not dear friends, in the next couple of days I will revert to making fun of Poles.
For today though, I wanted to ask your advice. My friend wishes to pay me for my time. I would gladly do it for free (I have a very soft spot for cancer victims), but I know it would make her feel better to pay me. Should I let her pay me?
If so, how much? A token gesture?
