hexes and curses
so a certain half brazilian friend of mine, who doesn't want to be properly identified (although i've mentioned her recently quiet a lot on my blog) came to my room this afternoon & got me laughing so hard, i almost wet my pants. i can't even remember what we were talking about when i said "you should hex her... do you ever hex people?" it was pretty random. it really had nothing to do with what she was saying - which i just remembered - she'd been invited to dinner with some girls in her ward, for a birthday celebration for a girl she doesn't like...and she responded with, "oh yeah, i hex people all the time. this one time, i cursed a girl i didn't like to have all daughters born with camel toes." insert bark laughing on my part. and then she laughed & admitted that she didn't know what camel toes were at that point. you see, this friend spent a fundamental portion of her childhood in Brazil, so she's ESL, and sometimes doesn't know/understand all of the English little terms. (one of my favorite things about that rat bastard i used to date, was his way of learning/not knowing little sayings, too) and then she told me how one time she said that curse to a girlfriend & the friend was kinda shocked & and it explained it to her & then my friend felt sorta stupid & cruel. oh, i was in tears people... you don't want to cross her, or she'll curse your daughters to have permi-camel toe.
