the other double-u

What = That that is, is. That that is not, is not. Is that it? It is.
You know what I love about the English language?  It's so strange.  When else can you stick two of the same words side by side and call it proper grammar?  Do do, that that, had had, etc.  And another thing, if the police police police, who polices the police police? But that's all beside the point.  Wait, what was my point? Oh right, I haven't made it yet.  Well, whaddayagonnado?

This is what, that's what:
Give a point in the title above to the word what. Then throw this foolishness out the window coming from my mouth.  Furthermore unconnected to this post in a similar vein sometimes I like to personify words (sorry, I can't stop).

For example:
Wut:   It's What! Waddup What?!
What:  Oh I thought we could dicuss what's what, whaddaya say?
Wut:  Wait, whaddid you say, What?
What:  Whaddit sound like? Whaddisaid was what's what, that's what.
Wut:   Oh, well, whaddaya know?
What:  I know I know but do you know? 
Wut:  What! What already?
What:  Whatchamacallit got married. Now she is a Whatchamadoodle.
Wut:  Oh, you don't say, What!
What:  Wut, I just told you what!  Pay attention!

Now that I have had my linguistic fun for the day and lost all of my three readers, let's get to the what. Wait, what was my what?
Now don't start that again!
Okay, okay I hear your cries. You dont think I do, but I do do I do! (uhh.. nevermind)

The WHAT in my African Adventure:
As I mentioned in my first post, Cornerstone has been going to the village of Buloba since 2007.  So my trip is merely a continuum (by the way, look up that word in the dictionary sometime and see if it doesn't intimidate you) of the partnership that was begun four years ago.  My group will be working to install rain-catch systems on the roofs of about twenty houses, playing with the kids in the village, visiting Bethany Village Orphanage (check it out online; it's awesome), and just meeting and talking with the people of Buloba.  Here are some links to videos and a letter that tell more of this story.
