Madam Carol, yes, HER - she made that statement about me once. 

I believe it was talking about drunk driving or something in china, where it's a very serious offence (it SHOULD BE!) - and no amount of peddlng, cajoling, or under the table can get you off the hook regardless of your societal status, or financial status, or whatever, which isn't always the case in some other Asian nations. (China for the past 10 or so years has managed to eradicate most of the corruption people deal with on a day to day level, which believe me, given how it was in 80's and 90's is mammoth and real progress for any Asian nation)). 

"in your country, maybe"... she went .

She was saying MAYBE you could "sort of" get away with it in your country i.e. my country "whichever that might be". 

Then the conversation shifted to being a foreign 😈 in the PRC. 

Thats nothing ,I laughed. 

I have the same thing when I go to India, or Spain, or any other place! 

And it's true. 

Think its different back Stateside? 

Nah. 

Im most at home there, but the "ephermeal" feeling upon seeing me, and me seeing others (most commonly happens when I see men with mustaches and big pot bellies, hehe or not) .. it happens. 

Picture this, me walking down the road, without a care int he world, literally, happiness RADIATING OFF me, then THAT sort of nod, and look - and .. .smile "that insane smile, looks like God knows why he's so happy, what he's thinking!" ... often to people you dont even know!

I dont know if you understand, but it happens!

And its THAT which causes people to classify me as what Carol said above. Hehe. 

And it's happened to me with bosses I've liked that that hired me on the spot, friends, and everything .. 

First impressions, I dont know ... 

And the men with mustaches thing? 

I dont know, certainly not because of what Mom said once about a certain Indian movie star in the 90's when I was little, Jackie Shroff. 

HE's so manly!

I remember that comment till this date. 

He did not seem particularly that - or not - to me!

But then again, as Dad said. 

"One of those comments she will never live down". 

Hehe 

Indeed. 

I dont know, another guy - I liked both, actually "Anil Kapoor", always had a mustache, so I asked my father curiously if he looked tough or manly or what not. 

"He's always seemed rather stupid" was his response (he meant the look). 

I dont know. 

Didnt seem that to me, I loved them both, but the epitome of manliness to me growing up, well, we've been over that plenty of times!

Hehe. 

Till this date. 

Pity the 90's are done gone, real times, but they'll return... 

Anyway ... 

The 0 Excuses FItness Ship forum is one of the best places to share witty insights like this with your fellow trainees, ask questions (of me) and more ... 

I answer all!

And not to mention, of course, free access to every product we have ... (except physical products) ... 

Get in NOW if you aren't already. 

Best,
