why I don't have a husband


We were stopped at this roadside restaurant in the grounds of Angkor Wat when we were completely surrounded by loads of kids trying to sell us anything they could, especially postcards. This little kid was particularily persistant and wasn’t going to take no for an answer. He started asking all the usual questions...what’s your name? where you from?...

him: where you from? where you from?!
me: ireland
him: i know ireland! your population is 4 1/2 milion, your currency is euro, your prime minister is bertie ahern!
me: that’s right, pretty impressive
him: now you buy my postcards!
me: no thank you
him: yes, yes you buy them!
me: no thank you.
him: you buy them for your husband
me: i don’t have a husband
him: you buy them for your friends
me: i don’t have any friends
him: you know why you don’t have any husband or friends?
me: why?
him: because you don’t have my postcards!!

who could resist that?! so i came away with a lot of ugly cambodian postcards but i still don’t have a husband.

I hope you took his name so when we read about Cambodia's next entrepreneurial super hero, we will recognise him from your story. Who know, maybe this postacrd story will still lead you to new friends AND a husband! (Personally, having had the latter, I am pretty sure if you end up with lots of the former, you'd be better off!

oh! what a humorous story. Maybe that guy, who sell to you his postcard is really an effective businessman someday.
You made a nice move to have more friends with your humorous blog.
