The last couple of blog posts have resulted in some questions that I thought I would address, to satiate the curious minds out there.
"But DZER, how did you know he was a transvestite hooker if he wasn't in his work clothes?"
Well, kiddos, Guam is a small place, and my village, Anigua, is an even smaller place. The person in question is a neighbor, who lives in a nearby apartment building and plies his/her trade at a skanky strip club across the main road. I know this because have previously seen him in her workclothes -- if you stop by the gas station near the strip club on your way home from a late night of poker, you often see these operators, who solicit very drunk people, often members of the Armed Forces, coming out of the club.
So THAT's how I knew. Happy? LOL
"DZER, what is a pica pole?"
This is a pica pole. It's a tool of the newspaper trade -- or at least it used to be before we went almost entirely digital. A pica is a unit of measuring; newspaper column widths are measured in picas. The usual formats are: 9-pica, 11-pica, and 14-pica columns. It also measures inches, as newspaper column lenghts are measured in inches. Being a metal ruler, they also are used by editors to lay out newspaper pages on paper dummies, resulting in nice, crisp, straight lines.
And Mimi, I'm sorry to report to you that it does NOT vibrate. LOL
