Same Haitian girl was finger-printing her phone, commenting into the air @ her FB. She pointed to a photo of a middle-age black woman (two chins, deflated bust, short haircut supported by huge garish earrings, etc) and exclaimed: “$40,000!”
Apparently that’s how much a guy in Belgium spent on gold and baubles for this woman, a friend of our Haitian smartie, whom he never saw outside of online dating site. “He posted in FB the delivery slip! And invited her to meet in London for Xmas! I sez, I’d want to see that jewelry first, not just the tracking ##…”
I look at the screen. A buff, smiling 40-ish guy in T-shirt bursting on his biceps waves one hand while hugging a 10yo boy with another.
“ And he is White, too! ” – triumphantly concludes Haitian girl
** Another young coworker casually dropped the news that she’s getting engaged. She is an Egyptian, a civil engineer and wears a diamond cross; her American English is impeccable. The fiance is her friend of 10 yrs, doesn’t speak English, lives in Cairo and has asked for her hand from her parents before speaking to her. She just learned about it yesterday. On the picture in her phone they pose together at the bottom of a pyramid, seating on the back of reclining camel. Office payroll ladies were in raptures. “Awwww, the camel is so white and the saddle so colorful! The pyramid is real! And HE is so handsome, looks like a movie star! You’ll have your wedding there? and bring him to US? Awwww!”
He looks just like a regular, run-of-the-mill jihadi: thin, swarthy, black olives of his eyes directed straight into the camera.
***We were given permission to leave earlier, this being a pre-TG day, and I used the time for a visit to my Doctor. Last time he saw me 5yrs ago, and then he joked that he’s going to leave for Mexico, where there is no insurance companies and no paperwork. -So, Dr, – I said, – When are you moving across the Southern border? – No kidding! Soon we’ll have a Trump for a president, and he hates Mexicans!”
-Trump has a point, no?
[I know. But couldn’t resist to troll him a bit.]
