SNL: Justin Timberlake, My Girl has a Dickon March 10, 2013 at 9:33 am
True Story, real photo, two surprises: Big party on Fat Tuesday on the square in Veracruz some years ago. I later heard that it is the biggest Mardi Gras celebration other than Rio and New Orleans. Six of us bought a table on the square for a $20 bottle of El Presidente to enjoy a front row seat for the parade and goings on. During the day most of the streets are closed off and peasants from the hinterland come to spread blankets in the street set up with various fruit flavored bottle drinks and quarts of tequila or aquadente. Far as the eye can see, and they invite everyone to sit down and have a drink. Especially gringos in cowboy hats.
As the evening began a very beautiful girl dressed to kill asked if she could join us. She spoke no English but explained she was a nurse. She liked me. A waiter came over and they had some angry words, with all the slang going a mile a minute it was hard for us to grasp, but we did heard “punta” a few times. That was our first surprise, that she was not a nurse after all, but a prostitute - well not all that much of a surprise. A few hours passed in which I almost had too much fun.
The waiter came by later when the beauty had left to the bano to tell us “senorita es hombre”. My pals all laughed and gave me a very hard time. She returned and as far as I was concerned, nothing changed and we danced the night away. As I explained to my five pals who were all sitting by themselves, “Sht man, I been walking that blanket line since noon and sex is so far beyond the realm of possibility what’s it matter?”
Though to this day, when I see any of those old pals, they have to tell the story to all concerned. And I don’t care, which is why this is here! And the SNL skit is so apropos. Oh and I almost forgot.. DUDE LOOKS LIKE A LADY
