When I first read this I took the line “He seems to be sticking to the road, Mark” quite literally… Ha!  I thought what?  Is he in molasses?  Is he stuck in one place?  Euphemisms and idioms are funny, are they not, especially translating across cultures…  Although I learned yesterday that “killing two birds with one stone” has the same meaning and usage in English AND Somali…  how funny.
