In Africa,

When I reached the age of eleven, my mom and I formed a coded message for me to send her over the CB radio if I were to get my period while I was away at boarding school. The day finally came. I was twelve. I scribbled on a small scrap of paper my message to be delivered to my mom. "We should have named the dog "Marmaduke" on Sunday." She heard about her daughter's first period over the radio, with all of the other missionaries listening in. Do you think they knew what the message meant?
