Ttwenty-something development worker in Afghanistan writes about when you know you’ve been in Afghanistan too long without R&R.
— you start using Afghan insults against other expats.
—you know the pricing scale for contract killings in your city.
—you don’t scream when you find a toenail in your bread, you just pick it out.
—you find it kind of gross but not at all weird when the hotel reception clerk is staring at full-screen photos of dismembered corpses on his computer when you check in.
—you know how to walk in a burqa like an Afghan woman.
—you have a list of people you’d love to send phony Taliban night letters, and that list is four whole pages long. Single-spaced.
