BLONDES IN COSTA RICA


BLONDES IN COSTA RICA
Stunt Blondes, not the actual Blondes we encountered.

On our last night in Costa Rica, after another successful day catching sailfish, we headed out for dinner, a half mile plus walk to the marina.  We encountered three very attractive young blonde ladies in a six person golf cart.  They were afraid to drive the cart as it was dark and the headlights wouldn’t work.

My brother, Chris, who would flirt with a fire hydrant if it had a nice smile had to stop and offer assistance.

“What seems to be the problem ladies?”

“We’all are heading to the marina to meet up with our husbands, but the headlights won’t work and were afraid to drive in the dark.”

Chris proceeded to first thump the lights…didn’t work.  Then he lifted the back seat to reveal all the batteries and he checked the connections…seemed in order. 

“Is the key on?”

“Yes.”

“Might be the fuse.”  I offered.

After several minutes of head scratching and conjecture, my first born son, Mike reached over to the steering column and suggested,
“Maybe this switch with the light bulb printed on it needs to be turned to the on position.”

Yup, that seemed to do it. 

Funny how they never mentioned they couldn’t find the switch, they only said they couldn’t get the headlights to work.

Blondes!

Anyway, we didn’t have to walk to the marina for dinner on our last night in Costa Rica.

  1. The use of the term "ladies" when speaking to strangers really is the international sign of being slightly creepy. Not as bad as "How are you dames doin'?" but still...

    Haha. Not being blonde, though, I really laughed.

    1. never heard that, didn't know it was a creepy way to address a ...what, female person? I guess I am guilty of being creepy too.

      Help me readers, how do you address female strangers if "ladies" is creepy?

    2. "Ladies" seems appropriate to me. 'Course, many of them seem to think I'm creepy, so.... ;)

    3. Must be a cultural thing because ladies is the term I would also use.
      But maybe its an age thing?

  4. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, maybe in their cars back home, the headlights come on automatically, like they do in my car. It's still a funny story, though!

  5. "Ladies" seems appropriate enough...I think it depends on the tone of voice and the body language.

  6. Your brother would flirt with a fire hydrant if it had a nice smile? Bwahahahahahahaha. I think I know your brother.

    I'm glad you had a great time on your fishing trip. ☺

  7. I had no idea "ladies" was creepy. I do know most women don't like being called "ma'am." Where's the rule book on how to stay out of trouble with women?

    1. There's probably no way to stay out of trouble with women.

  8. Gotta love your smart son Mike and laughed about your brother's flirting instincts. Also impressed you put this out for your wives to read though that could actually be a smart move. Surely if anything untoward happened, your would never have published it. Right?

  9. I sent this one to my wife's daughter, who you may know is an attractive blonde. But she has a good sense of humor and appreciates blonde jokes too so I don't think you're in any danger, Cranky.

  10. I'm still laughing out loud at the expression "stunt blondes."

  11. As long as they weren't "evening" ladies, using that tactic to drum up business...

  12. So how does the ditzy "blonde" thing work? Do you have to be a natural blonde or can you be one who gets it from a bottle, who has dark eyebrows and roots? :)

    I'm glad I read Pixel Peeper's comment because I didn't initially see your caption. I thought it was odd that their makeup and hair was perfect out on a hot sweaty golf course.

  13. Hi Cranky,

    As a "greying" blond I don't like the implication that all blonds are stupid.

    Actually, a lot probably are...

    ;o)

    Cheers
