just a chick from Trinidad writing about her life on a small island but with big dreams all the same.

Amazing day.....

What an amazing day I had today.

It started with my girlfriend screaming in my ear that my sister made the newspaper today she was with Brian Lara so if anyone of you has access to the Trinidad express e-paper she is on page 10 and since we are twins you can have an idea what I look like.

Then I had that meeting with my boss my eyes got glassy when the first thing out of his mouth was Amelia if I haven't told you before you are my most valued employee and that the VP commented that he likes my entuasiam and bubbly attitude I almost started crying right there in his office he said that we just have to understand each other and then he called in the guy and we made up he said he was sorry and that I can be dismissive sometimes and I told him don't take offence because when the pressure is on I can't help but be short with people and I feel high and we have been smiling with each other the whole day.

I left the office for lunch for a change I went to a resturant and had lunch and I think I need to stop eating at my desk I need to take a break and breathe and see the outside and regroup and relax and continue work its for the best.

Oh but the best thing was as you know I work at the airport and I met a man from El Salvador and I just commented that it must be nice to be able to speak two languages and he asked me my name and my real name is a Spanish name and he asked me if he could touch my arm because he has never seen someone with my dark skin I could not believe it he kept putting his hand next to mine to compare the difference in shade and he asked me for the English word for my hair I told him corn-row he said in his country he has never seen someone as beautiful as me black skin, black hair, black eyes and I felt so special I told my sister and she wants to move there.

Please don't burst my bubble by telling me he was trying to lyrics me because he seemed genuine and we had a great conversation and he was cute too.

Cho! The Express wants money for me to access their e-paper. Post the pic yourself, why doncha?
Glad the cas-cas at the office worked itself out, and since the Salvadorean felt you were so lovely to look at, post the picture yourself, why doncha?

Oh, did I say that before? ;-)
