My roommate Diego is from Ecuador, which is possibly why he prefaces every sentence with the phrase, “We have a saying in Ecuador.” For example he might say, “We have a saying in Ecuador: Please pass me the remote control.” Then I’ll say, “Diego, I really don’t think that’s a saying in Ecuador,” and he’ll get mad and say, “Eric, quit being such a bitch.” If you are skeptical of whether this is actually a typical conversation between me and Diego, you have obviously never seen us converse before. Our room is like a constant sitcom, only there’s a lot of swearing and hurt feelings, and nobody ever learns a valuable lesson.
Don’t get me wrong, when Diego is not embarrassing me in front of company or giving me instructions in the form of a series of incomprehensible whistles and hand gestures, he is a very good roommate. The problem is that he is continuously embarrassing me in front of company and giving me instructions in the form of a series of incomprehensible whistles and hand gestures. Still, I’ve always contested that Diego is very wise and mysterious. Nobody can comprehend the true nature of Diego.
In other news, you may have noticed that I removed the guestbook from this site. This is because, without a guestbook, I can now say such things as “I secretly want to see A Walk To Remember” without getting publicly humiliated on my own website. So if you kids have a question or comment you want me to hear, you can simply email it to me and I will respond to it on this site in a segment I ingeniously like to call “Mail.” But please do not email me just to make fun of me for wanting to see A Walk To Remember. It’s really not that big of a deal!
