Bloated Heads and Hide-n-seek

Sometimes it feels like life is just missing a little something... like if you could only get your hands on some formless clay or a black bean burrito, everything would just miraculously slide into its destined place.

Well, for me right now, I feel like all I need are a few enormous, over-sized Olmec heads in my life.
Well... those, a few ruins, some stunning coastline, a touch of stomach upset, a pinch of the Unknown, and a good serving of some inspiring company.

Yup. You guessed it. My travel bugs are nipping at those tender places between my toes again, and rather than squashing them between two graham crackers with chocolate (c'mon- you've never heard of toasted travel mite s'mores before?!), I'm going to heed their nagging nibbles.

My Mystery Man (we'll just call him Mister E.) and myself are leaving tomorrow morning for a month in Mexico.

Though my posts might be a bit sporadic in the coming weeks, expect their quality to directly reflect the number of chickens I breast feed on the bus, the quantity of shoe-shine proposals I receive, and the pile-up of linguistic lip-clenchers I invoke...

Ready or not, Yucatan, here I come!

Hot dog! Send me one of my Wanted Posters if you see one tacked to a tree.


Have fun and don't fail to post often. Tell your mystery man that I'll beat the shit out of him if you don't have a good time (if he's a whole lot smaller than me).

Can you bring me back some gum?

And a sombrero. I only have one extremely large hat, and feel my collection is lacking in diversity. A rain hat from Borneo, a sombrero from Mexico, hmmm, what else would be good...

Have a gorgeous time in Mexico!

So do you think -C is having a good time in Mexico?

Dunzo said...

Undoubtedly!

The Ingrown Hare said...

What if she's gotten sick eating Mexican food?

Dunzo said...

-C does not get sick and if she does, she will simply exchange some of her solar karma for a 'get out of jail free' card!

I hope she wasn't on this bus that drove off a cliff today:
