It has been over 40 degrees Celsius in Calcutta for the past 3 days, that would be 104 Fahrenheit.
That isn't just a high that is the norm. It reaches 100 F by 10 am and cools back down to 93 by 8pm.

It is 7:48 right now as I write and the temperature in the room is 96 F.

Two days ago everyone was talking about how we broke the heat record that was held for the last 10 years, though I never got the numbers. Bother that.
Anyways I think you get that it is HOT here.

That being said I will tell you about something nice.
The game of RISK.

An Australian, named Mark, and I went in 50/50 and bought it
yesterday when walking home from work.

A Hollander named Axel killed my green troops,
Mark's blue troops,
and, a Swedish, Dilan's yellow troops,
by rolling consistent 6's and trampling us under his red troops.

I was so disappointed.

I must conquer the world!

Pray for me.

Have you checked your facebook? I'm getting a discount on the oral supplies I mentioned on an earlier post of yours. Snyders (drug store company) has been quite generous to a request I made asking for a discount. They will give me the flouride rinse, because it costs so much money, and sell the rest of the supplies below cost to me. So a 16 oz bottle of hydrogen peroxide will cost me only 17 cents. The toothbrushes are equally cheap. A six-pack of them for only 70 cents. The item that's costs the most is suprisingly toothpaste, the total for that (I can't remember how many tubes I asked for) will cost me 250.00! Jesus Christ (!) loves you, etc. They had to order the toothpaste, and get my go ahead before doing so. I'm supposed to call my contact (a very nice man) next to week to confirm that the toothpaste has been delivered to their HQ in Minneapolis. What I'm most concerned about right now is postage. Because liquids weigh so damn much, I'm terrified of that cost. Do the missionaries have some kind of postage discount that would apply to these supplies? Could you please find that out for me? I'll plan on mailing the supplies sometime next week if everything works out, and if I have enough money to afford the postage and the supplies.

Let me know, either by posting here, or preferably on my facebook page.

God speed the toothpaste!
