“Loopy, are you one of those girls that plays football?, I hear bellowed across the dining area.
“Yes E, I am or at least I used to be when I was at school”.
“I don’t like that, girls who play football”; E replies….”And did you use to be a lesbian!!”
Sometimes I love the fact that E has no verbal filter. It was a bit daunting on my first night here when her first question to me before even asking my name or if I was o.k, happened to be; “Are you an Albino”, which after my response; she promptly followed up with “Are you African?”
The staff keep telling me to spend more time out of my room, and I think I’m getting better at it. I really should if only just to see what E will blurt out next.
