Off to the Gypsies

When I was a kid, one of my mom’s biggest joking threats was that if I didn’t behave she’d ship me off to the gypsies. As my great-grandparents had come over from Hungary as a little one I was sure that someway, somehow she’d find a connection and off I’d go! Needless to say I didn’t actually misbehave all that much. However, I WAS fascinated by the world at large and dreamed about traveling all over – which to a certain extent I’ve done as an adult. I also studied the Rom people or gypsies as an adult when I had to do an ethnography on a people group for an anthropology class and while I’d probably never want to be “shipped off to them” they were fascinating – and just the idea holds a special, if whimsical place in my heart.
