I wasted too much of my day yesterday reading Ragen’s old blogs. And once again, I need to address the air conditioner story.
For those of you that are new, Ragen brags that she is the ‘Kate Moss of West Africa.’ Because her mother ‘sold her for two air conditioners’ while in the Peace corps. She even goes on to say that it was, “…twice the dowry of an African princess.” Yup – I always feel all tingly inside when my mom sells me. It’s like a dream come true.
What point is she even trying to prove? That her own mother thinks so little of her that she is willing to sell her for two air conditioners? She never claims that it was a ‘ha ha joke’ thing. In fact, she repeats that story. Over and over. And is proud of the fact that her own mother ‘sold’ her for two air conditioners. A badge of honor for Ragen. Go Ragen – your mom tried to sell you. Have fun with that in therapy.
Here is her explanation. Added bonus of her ‘mother’ saying it was 120 degrees for months on end in the comments.
And since she brought it up, what are the chances that the Peace Corps would be okay with a volunteer ‘selling’ their kid?
She is fucking bizarre.
