No I shall not.

Now I know I like to save the funnies for Fridays but I couldn't resist sharing this with you.

I got an interesting email from one of my new readers. Here it is:

my name is fandy in indonesia. I am amazed to see your blog. it seems you have a lot of experience. Shall you be with me?

Now I know my blog has been all prettied up and all, but honestly this is not on!

  3. I laughed so hard... now someone tell me where the 'experience' call comes from. Since I only have the one child I'm a bit confused!

  4. You should reply and tell Fandy that your father requests a dowry of 100 goats and 30 pieces of silver. Then you'll consider it.

  5. STL how dare you! My father would at least request gold if not diamonds for his only daughter.

  6. It's hilarious. The person is probably Asian and as English is not his/her native language, sometimes slips such as this can occur. Perhaps he/she meant differently.

  9. To be frank, I dunno what he/she meant by that.

    'Shall you be with me?'

    I'm sorry to say this, but it sounds like she wants you to be the love of his/her life. :)

  10. Hey girl, you just missed your 'one and only' chance at an Indonesian email order bride. Too bad my uncle didn't see through that one.

  11. I think she meant 'can I follow you' as in follow your blog. Some things don't translate well and I believe her culture dictates being polite and asking your consent before she adds you.

  12. Ahhh...brings to mind some old memories. I lived in Jakarta Indonesia from 1976 - 1979...actually went to school there 9th-12th grade (did I just give my age away?)....

    But...it is funny...and probably not what the poster meant to say. Perhaps she (he) was asking if 1) you will join their blog, or (2) if you will help her (him) with their blog....
