Cowgirls and Indians

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

One of the biggest draws to spend the summertime in Montrose revolves around some of our favorite friends, who we refer to simply as “the Hong Kong boys.” Several Indian families who live in Hong Kong also own vacation homes in my humble little cowpoke hometown, and for years, the summertime has meant reunions.

These guys are generous, thoughtful, intelligent, funny, and most of all, they know how to play. They even get ME, typically straight-laced and pulled together, to play along. I’m not a “game person,” but they can somehow convince me to play anything: soccer, pool, Mafia, ping-pong, etc. I am grateful for their silly, fun-loving spirits, and the playful side that they bring out in me.

Last night, we talked about the concept of arranged marriages. All I’m saying is that currently, these guys are my future children’s only chance at pigmentation.
