He showed up Saturday night. Sunday he asked where he could find a store and he asked about the night life. He speaks no Spanish. He has no interest in learning Spanish. I have seen him return from the store once. I have seen him go out at night never. He says he's gone to the beach.
He's always in his bed or on the couch nearest his bed alternating between dicking around on his laptop and dicking around on his iPnohe. Sunday night I return ~3am from a girl's apartment he's not goen out. Tuesday night I return ~3am from a girl's apartment1 and he's not gone out at night yet. He's tall, fit, English, and afraid to make eye contact with the Brasilian chick in the bed next to his porque ele não fala português. I am short, hairy, midwestern, and girls buy me coffee.2
Please tell me stories about how technology is "connecting people" and making lives better, and how this Englishman is a capable man with the qualities of his ancestors that colonized much of the world.
