Nica life moment

While visiting my first Peace Corps host family in Carazo this weekend, I asked my Nicaraguan mother how she was and if anything new was happening in her life.  She laughed and said, "Jodido pero contento."
Not your typical response for "How ya doing?"  But, this expression cracks me up and I would love to put it on a t-shirt.  It does say something more as well: I frequently meet people here in Nicaragua who do not have many resources, yet they seem so generous and happy; perhaps content.  Of course, there are all types of people in this world, everywhere you go...
