Where in the World?

how did she get here ...

I like that I no longer have to limit my run-on sentence writing. It makes me feel naughty.

The bare knuckled facts? I was born in Montreal (so, yes, I'm a Canuck. The jokes can end now.) I was raised in California and spent a year in Ghana. I moved to Austin. I now consider this place home. I have two kids a dog and two cats.

Gyesika? This is the story:

Gyesika is the phonetic of my given name. I couldn't figure out why Ghanaians kept laughing when I introduced myself, until the Twi (lingua franca of Ghana) class, two weeks before I left Ghana, where I learned this:

gye [Jay] = take

sika [Seekah] = money

I still find this funny.
