Pope and Kitty Porn…

Part I - Tuin wants to change his name to Pope. Maybe it’s a Khmer name…maybe it’s a name he has heard somewhere; it certainly has nothing to do with the Catholic pope. The name Pope wouldn’t be so bad in itself…if your last name wasn’t Porn. Yes, 16 year old Tuin now wants to be called Pope Porn.


Part II – There is a new little kitten hanging around the humans. Most cats here keep to themselves as they scurry and scrounge for food. Well this little black and white kitty has become quite the friend of volunteers and children alike. She sometimes sneaks her way into the children’s dorm and cozy’s on down for the night; or she snuggles into a lap for a quick snooze. The little kitty also is a regular around the table at every meal; which Wayne tries to discourage...but can you really ever control a cat?


Tuin…ahem, I mean Pope loves the kitty. He says that it is his cat. I told him that he must take really good care of her while I am in Nepal so she will be healthy and friendly when I return to Cambodia early next year. As we talked to Pope about the kitty I remarked sarcastically that he better be a good father to Kitty; which then prompted the discussion (with Kate, Wayne and Fiona) about ‘the Pope and kitty porn’. The dialogue went a bit further until it was totally politically incorrect in the most side splitting way.

Now when we see Pope, it’s become comfortable to say, “Hey Pope, how’s your kitty porn?” He smiles oblivious to the joke, well, hopefully he’s oblivious…
