Conversations in the Saloon

By Lillian R. Perry, age 15

So I was in the “saloon” (aka, hair salon) in Yei getting my hair done, when one of the ladies who was waiting started complaining to the hairdresser that it was taking too long to have my hair done (in Juba Arabic of course).  I said that I was sorry (in English).  The lady looked at me and said, ''Who is this lady who speaks very good American English?''  The hairdresser told her I was Doctor Perry's daughter.  When she heard this, she said ''Oh, Doctor Perry, the nice man with the funny beard!"  Well, if that was not enough, she said "I didn't know Doctor Perry had such nice coffee colored children."  For the next ten minutes all they talked about was the hospital and my dad.   Just as my dad was pulling up the lady said "I just love the color of the hospital—bright blue!"
