Ex-hubby is a Good Sport



This is the receipt for a jewel-studded silver lapel pin (la girafa) that I bought for my ex-wife while the kids and I visted El Sarape silversmiths in Nogales, Sonora, on 31 March 2006. I told the kids: "Tell Mom this is from you."

As you can see by the amount on the ticket, you can see that I am a big spender, si?

way to be a good sport...maybe next time you can just get a t-shirt for her.

Sholuda got her one of those painted guitars so's she can sing the blues for losin' the man that could curl her toes!
 
Sounds like the.chronicler is trying to win his ex back. If I were his ex, I'd take him back and maybe the next time we divorced, I'd get more than "la girafa." hahahahahahahahahahahahah!
 
It appears that none of you mugs got the joke.

The receipt says $472.45. When the saleswoman gave it to me to sign, I nearly fell over.

She laughed.

"No, SeƱor. That ees pesos!"
 
Well, I still contend you shoulda got her one of those guitars. They are much cheaper and ever so tacky. That or one of the squeeze boxes for $10.00 American. Remember the "Who" song?

Mama's got a squeeze box
She wears on her chest
And when Daddy comes home
He never gets no rest

'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

Well the kids don't eat
And the dog can't sleep
There's no escape from the music
In the whole damn street

'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out

She's playing all night
And the music's all tight
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes, squeeze me, come on and squeeze me
Come on and tease me like you do
I'm so in love with you
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night


Take Pete Townsend's word for it. You'd win her back and have some Jelly Roll to boot.
 
Leo, could you explain this metaphor to me?
 
This is a perfect example of the single entendre, a lost art in these days of multiplicity and the realized duality of life.
 
Right, teddy. I saw imemdiately this was pesos. Len and I became experts in the art of converting $$ the day we went. The exchange rate was such that $472 pesos meant you spent about $45 for Diana's pin. -L
 
Still way too much dinero. Shoulda talked them down to $12 and a tip for the vendor. They buy that stuff by the pound.
 
yeah, a dollar for his Pepsi. That's how they get that extra buck outta you
