At Pagong, Ramoaner refuses to eat a mango and says she'll instead drink lots of water. She tells us she's "finicky" and tries to act like it's for the greater good, but I don't see how draining the tribe's water supply in compensation is a gesture toward the community. Gervase says he feels bad for her (I'm not sure "bad" is all he feels for her) as Ramoaner gags and retches on the beach. I hope she doesn't get any puke on her fetching islandwear. Gretchen helps Ramoaner spew and then tells us that Ramoaner does not allow herself to fail. Looks like she's doing a pretty good job of it to me. Gervase feels that everyone is pulling their own weight and that "people have been sick; people have been hurting." "People," in this case, is just another word for Ramoaner. B.B., aware that he's causing dissension, says in a confessional, "I just want to make my life as comfortable as possible and then get the hell off." Except maybe not in that order.
The last time my family gathered, my cousin taught my eighty-eight-year-old grandmother to say, "Wazzap." She can stick her tongue out further than Stacey can. It was truly a life-altering experience.
