His only solace was that he was no longer a **** picker, having completed his apprenticeship to reach the exhalted heights of a **** flicker.......
You sure you did not see anyone sitting in the rain and projecting gloop towards the boat from the end of a ruler?
Had that delightful experience in Rio de Janeiro many years back. Hilariously, the shoe-shiner wanted more than my shoes cost to clean it off! (Less funny
was how he tried to insist I walk to a secluded area before he cleaned it off).
I'm currently installing a watermaker
, just to stay somewhat on topic. I know water
is free almost everywhere, but I want the convenience and a dependable quality. I can still get water
quayside or catching rain if I want.
