A Few of My Favorite Quotes (Shit My Man Says)
You may be disappointed if you are expecting some inspiring quotes. As we have been packing and preparing for our 7 month trek through Latin America, my boyfriend has said some hilarious things. He is full of gems.
Some of my favorites include:
“You need to look more frumpy.”
“You need to make your ass not look so good.”
“We need to buy you some pants that make you look like a bull dyke.”
“Once we get to the beach towns you can be yourself,but when we are traveling you need to look as unattractive as possible.”
These quotes all seem to have a common theme, but keep in mind we are passionate about stopping human trafficking so thoughts of women and children getting kidnapped are always in the back of our heads. He wants to make sure when we are going through certain areas, we don’t draw unnecessary attention to ourselves. Also, being a blond traveling through Latin American Countries can cause people to stare in places not heavily traveled by tourists.
So today in final preparation for our trip, we are heading back to REI for the millionth time so I can get unattractive, sporty, loose fitting clothes and an ugly hat to cover my blond hair (especially since my hair turns bleach blond when I surf a lot).
72 hours until we take off…
