Why Nevis? Funny Things People Say To Me In Nevis [new blog post]
The flag of St. Kitts and Nevis was officially adopted on September 19, 1983. The green colour is said to be symbolic of the fertile land, yellow for the year-round sunshine, black recalls the African heritage of St. Kitts, and red the overall struggle for freedom from slavery through colonialism to independence. The two white stars indicate hope and liberty.
Funny Things People Say To Me In Nevis
According to the latest Nevis reporters, there is NO WAY I could be in Nevis because of the constant sun, beautiful blue skies or slow pace. I MUST be here for a man.
This is something that I get this a lot. I would love to be a fly on the wall and find out why people think I am on the island. I’m sure if this was Family Fortunes or Family Fuel, this would come out on top.
Reporters please let me know his name, what he looks like, if he’s tall/dark/handsome, treats me well etc. I’d like to meet him because it seems everyone else has (read this is why I’m single)
A man actually said to me, I know you have someone keeping you company because I see the light on in your house. Sooooo….does this mean that I don’t need to see around the house, like everyone else when it’s dark outside?
I’ve had 12 year old tell me “I like to see you”. Even when I told him I’m old enough to be your mother, he said he still likes to see me (Dear Mr. Nevisian Man, how not to get the attention of a foreigner).
Once, a guy without trance asked me to go to dinner at Sunshine’s on Pinney’s beach. He doesn’t have trance (and neither do I) or a driver’s license, so he was going to rent a car for me to drive to meet him for dinner.
He was going to get the bus there and meet me there but was going to get a lift back with me. So in other words, I was going to have to drive on this ‘date’ either way.
Another time, I go downstairs to put the garbage in the outside bin. A guy appears outside when I turn around:
Him: a here you live?
Him: you lie. I just saw you take out the trash.
Me: so why ask a stupid question the? Of course you are going to get a stupid answer.
Moral of the story, choose your questions wisely.
A guy asks me about my tattoo which says “with pain comes strength”. I explain that it means that, when you go through painful situations, it makes you stronger. His response was that I’m English and we have the pound so we don’t have to worry about anything. Whereas in Nevis they have the Eastern Caribbean dollar. First of all, I explained, pain has no currency. People in the richest countries are struggling. Secondly, if I’m living in Nevis, then I too am living off the Eastern Caribbean dollar just like you, I told him. 😂
