"Mom, Dad, I'm moving to the DR."

I love Wednesdays because there is something to look forward to: my brother's e-mails! Bro is on a mission in the Dominican Republic and Wednesday is his P-Day. I wait anxiously all morning, checking my e-mail constantly until I see "1 Unread email" in bold. Then I wait with bated breath as I start to read.

Well, this morning's e-mail was the highlight of my day . . . and not just because it was an e-mail from bro. It's because what it said. I'll put in a little of it for your enjoyment:

"I want to take a minute to talk about a barber here in Navarrate though.

"We first went to his peluqueria (babershop) two weeks ago. My companion was getting his hair cut and the barber started telling him that he should tell me that if I arranged for him to go to the US he would cut my hair for free, for my whole life. He obviously thought that I didn´t speak Spanish, but I just started laughing, and after a few minutes he realized that I was understanding what he was saying. So then he started to talk to me about it. And after a little bit he asked if I have a sister that he could marry.

"Well, we went back there today and he started up again. At first it was just the free haircuts, but then he started to up the ante. In the end he told me to tell you that he´ll give you a thousand dollars if you come here and live with him. I just laughed. But I took a couple pictures of him just in case you were interested. ;D"
This is the man who wants to marry me.
Don't you wish you had a Caribbean barber offering you $1000 to go to his island and marry him? ;)

Have a good one!

(By the way, this was my 200 post!)


  1. I love, love, love that he posed for you.

    And don't be fooled by his Latin charm--if they want to get married to an American that badly (without knowing them) there's something else going on. So, be flattered, but don't pack!

  2. HAHAHAHAHA! That's hilarious! I don't know, that grand could be pretty nice to have... :D just teasing. I bet that was very flattering!

  3. I guess you'll always have a fallback plan, then. ;)
