    Don't drink with Strangers

    When he gets up to use the bathroom, his half-finished drink is "enhanced"...

    I have to say that I do not feel sorry for him. Should have known better than that. Thinks he comes over here, waving his foreign passport and a few valuta notes and silly promises. That will make every nubile, most beautifull, willing and waiting for Price charming young girl running to him.Begging him to take her out of her misery from her lousy life. and she will make him the most loving, beautifull, willing, caring wife forever and a day. Or whatever comes first.

    From the photo in the article, he is not a 16-year-old kid who knows nothing.


    Same with these -Nigerian letters-. One reads and hears about them every day. People still think it happens only to others, not to them.

    Why go to Ukraine if he thinks......
    Marko Westerink, 48, was in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, looking for a girlfriend because he says: "Russian women are quite beautiful. I don't know if Kiwi girls are any good."

    He may be an adult, but he flunked geography.

    I suppose Petro would be fuming that many Westerners still think Ukraine and Russia are the same country.

    Reminds me of coming back to US from Russia one time, on Aeroflot.

    For some reason, they did not have my seat available, so they bumped me upinto First Class. Cool!

    The Flight Attendant asked if there was anything I needed (you're in First Class you are pampered) and I said "вода."

    As usual, since you are flying into the jet stream, there is lots of turbulence and I was climbing the walls in nervousness with the plane-shaking.

    The Flight Attendant brought me back a glass of clear liquid and I was already sipping it when I realized it was водка.

    When I finished it, I was no longer gripping the seat rails tightly, fretting about the Jet-stream buffeting, I was calm and relaxed.

    at 2.30 the guy is drinking milk?
    I think the best scene is missing. it is from an old CCCP film, don't remember the title. the guy has the shakes, tries to steady his glass with the necktie. and pull the glass up to his mouth.with the necktie. because the hands alone are so shaky he cant drink. for that scene, alone hoe should have gotten the Oscar!

    From what I have gleaned from the story the man hasn't made it to a dating site or even to a female, for that matter. Don't eat borsch with strangers, visit a dating site instead, lol.

    I would get drunk with Stephen King or Dean Koontz or another one of my favorites...

    It amplifies the emotions in the book...

    Best part is when you're finished you can read it again, it's like reading a new book because you can't remember the ending!
