Today....I watched a women with her baby in stroller get on the crowded tram, stand in front of another couple with a 2 year old. The 2 year old girl was standing near the legs of her sitting father. This women who they clearly did not know took out a tissue and wiped their toddlers nose. She then got a wet wipe out of her stroller and wiped the girls face clean. All awhile the parents just sat there, either in shock or perhaps this is common. I stood a few feet away and "was all OMG what is that women doing" "WTF"! Then she reached into her bag and gave the little girl a wrapped muffin....no communication is going on between women and parents just her and the little girl. Next she took out two little pink clips and started fixing the girls hair! The little toddler kinda started getting weirded out and was like wooooo this has gone too far, and pulled the clips out of her hair and threw them on the ground. I couldn't believe how ballsy this women was and why! The next stop off they all went in different directions and I sat there with my mouth wide open saying WTF was that mini baby makeover tram style! So bizarre!
We went back down to the Saturday flea market along the river. I totally cleaned up on more blue and white plates and such. But even better I realized I'm actually pretty good at holding my breath and can do it for some time. The level of BO today was an all time euro high!!
We also had to buy two light bulbs.....they cost 11.50 Euros each...that's about $15.00 per light bulb. Have you ever paid so much for a bulb the size of my thumb! We said to the guy holy sh@t are you kidding me. Everything here is so expensive....but people here think America is so expensive.
I apparently look like this:
While we were in the city I went to get my eyebrows threaded. My girl doesn't speak English and all I do it point to my eyebrows and say Ja! So she gets to work and is all oh my and other sounds to imply I have a uni brow and I'm asking her to solve world peace or something. I said they are bad uh? She is all Ja Ja Ja!
So after my brows are done and tears are running down my face from the pain, she points to my lip and says okay! And I'm like, You think it's bad and she makes a face and says Ja bad! Okay go ahead! Now that hurts, the pain level is close to child birth....seriously! Then so points to my cheeks and chin, I was like seriously am I the bearded women ....crickets....blank stare.....then I say is it bad? Ja it's bad! Okay go ahead! Now this is me! Bald faced baby! 15 Euros later and a few tears!
Saturday!How about yours?
