Having escaped the Philippines single and having only been fleeced for about $500 I feel blessed. The girl was too young, stupid and now as it turns out, was totally manipulated by Fat Auntie who I was later to find out owns and runs an Internet Cafe, bought and paid for by her assembly line of old, white, rich (comparatively speaking) American husbands (for her daughters and nieces).
The latest count I think (ol’ Sherlock has discovered Facebook!) is 5. Well Sherlock also began to wonder about the family and has pieced together a few deductions. This girl was the middle of three children. The parents don’t work (of course). The oldest is a boy turned er…cross gender transvestite works at a call center. The youngest is an absolutely stunning girl from the barrio that wins those silly beauty contests and is by far the prettiest girl around. The family has “taken her in out the goodness of their hearts”…Hmmm Sherlock thinks…Obviously good looking.
Being groomed for one of Fat Aunties Great White Man experiments no doubt. Of course they couldn’t have adopted a buck toothed no prospects fatty. And the boy…er girl. I have not read about the gender confusion issue here. Maybe it is here and I have just missed it. Some would say the obviously passive emotionally distant father is to blame. Sherlock deduces it might be something more sinister.
What if his/her gender confusion lies in the possibility that he feels guilty he has been born a boy and cannot possibly “bring home the foreign man bacon”? Holmes decides to ponder this over some cocaine or perhaps a visit to the opium den will provide some enlightenment.Published in
