I was the minority in my elementary school, everyone was Mexican.  I didn't learn any Spanish though until I grew up and discovered my passion for Mexican and Puerto Rican love songs.  I don't know a lot of Spanish and I may not be able to help in a real emergency but I can sweep you off your feet when yo hablo espanol. 

 I legit love this song.

don't go there

I listen to podcasts. The Moth is a good one.  My friend sent me a link to it a while ago because she thought I'd like it...she sent me the one with Annie Duke. Umm.

 

Yea.

 

My friend doesn't play poker.

 

It was okay actually.

 

Anyway.

 

One of the most entertaining episodes I've heard was about a pick-pocketer in New York.  He perfected his craft by practicing with mannequins that had bells attached to them.  If a bell rang while he moved around the room picking their pockets he knew he had messed up.  It was so sharp.

 

This week I've been listening to a lot of the Jared Tendler podcasts.  They aren't too long and the conversations are insightful.  I recommend.

 

what gives

I was sick, I had the sniffles. I was walking out of Starbucks and this guy I know saw me. "How are you?" he asked and went in for a hug.  As I dodged his hug I was like, "I'm sick."  "So this is what you look like with no make up on," and then he forced a high five on me.

Backstory... Same guy asked me out at Whole Foods.  I said no. He gave me his number anyway. Whatever.  Then he hugged me! What the!? I wasn't ready for it, I didn't see it coming. I couldn't escape it.  Then a month later I order a pizza and the same guy delivers it.  And you know what he did?  Yea, he hugged me.  How did I not see this coming?  No hugs dude. I don't want to hug you.  So I dodged his hug outside of Starbucks. And I look good with no make-up on buddy. I'm going to take your statement as a compliment.

As all of you have noticed, I haven't been blogging.  I don't have an exciting reason why not. I needed some inspirado I guess and then I found this little gem on YouTube.
