Everyday is a good day, just some days are better...
Yesterday Arvid gets a call from a guy he knows in
Fort Lauderdale. He is visiting Puerto Rico and is
thinking of maybe moving here permanently.
Next thing I know, Arvid says he will be
showing Dave around. I didn’t want to go,
but did agree to meet them for lunch.
Dave is a non stop talker. He knew everyone
and everything. Reminded us of a few people we
know 😱, even so it was an entertaining time.
I also learnt a brand new expression (for me it's
new) It’s called catfishing. Of course this also
made me laugh because I do know a few people who
when you see their online profile it's NOTHING
compared to what they look like in real life😂.
As Arvid said, “our nephew J knows all about this."
He experienced it first hand. J was the one who
first mentioned it to Arvid a while back.
Seems like these women touch up their pictures
so much that when you do meet, it’s as if
you’re meeting a totally different person.
Dave said that many online profiles are this way
Facebook, dating apps etc. I also know a few people
like this Their profile picture and the real them is
like night and day. They're some people I have
no clue what they look like without makeup.
I love all the Apps that can edit pictures and
stuff, but when it starts to get too unrealistic
then something is definitely wrong here.
It's like how can a person look the same way
today as they did 5-10 years ago. Face totally
smooth to the point it's really shiny. Not a single
wrinkle, that is until you see them in real time.
Dave really made me laugh😂 yesterday.
Another warm day here. Arvid is back to
checking the daily cases of Covid. Not so
good right now. It's starting all over again.
A very good friend of ours back home in Florida
has been tested positive for this new strain. He's
vaccinated, but at the same time he is in his 80's.
A happy day to all. Arvid and I do enjoy our balcony time.
At the end of the day, I am thankful my
blessings are bigger than my problems...
