( 8:09 AM ) teahouse
On Saturday, I got a call from my old friend B.
"Guess where I am," she said. "E and I got married at the Justice of the Peace and we're now living in Mexico. He got a job offer working for a casino here."
E is B's boyfriend of 4 years. If you knew them, you wouldn't be at all surprised that they suddenly got married at the justice of the peace. She probably wore a t-shirt, no shoes and and wore a garland of honeysuckle in her hair.
She told me they're living in Monterrey, Mexico in a hotel attached to the casino where her husband works. Right now her Spanish consists of what she learned while watching Sesame Street as a kid.
"How do you like it?" I asked.
"It's not bad," she said. "We go out to eat a lot. There's a Chili's and an Applebee's near the hotel. People are really into Tex-Mex food here." #
