    Haven't we met here before? No? I'm sure we...oh never mind!

    Hi everybody,

    A cloudy, grey, snowy afternoon here in Winnipeg. Just the kind of day to dream up a new thread for the the forum.

    This is kind of a remake of a thread 4 or 5 years ago (it worked wekll then) but you know, different site, different people, etc.

    The theme for this site is stupid, cheesy, lame pick-up lines that you've heard or really dumb behaviour you've observed between men and women. The only rule is, you have to have heard/seen it in Aruba.

    I'll get the ball rolling.

    Back in 1990 we were staying at Talk of the Town, and on about day 3 of our vacation we were at the beach across the street. That afternoon, there was also a Dutch woman, mid-30's or so, dark hair and an...um, athletic build. She had a small dog with her and much to my chagrin, the dog only responded to commands in Dutch. More about that part later.

    Anyway, with the sun and the heat etc, this woman decided to sun bathe European style, moving to the water when she wanted to cool off.

    While watching her was fun, watching other guys watching her was even more fun! One individual, not looking where he was going, darned near castrated himself on the corner of a picnic table. Another fellow with a beer in one hand and his two year old daughter in the the other arm, dumped almost half a can of Heineken over the little girl's head, watching this woman with his mouth open. You didn't need to understand Dutch to know that his wife was really unhappy!

    Me? I didn't do anything that day but the next day we were downtown shopping. While Donna was in a clothing store I headed for a bookshop. I quickly found a Dutch phrase and was quietly but desparately trying to find out how to say "Here doggie. Nice doggie" in Dutch, hoping of course that the woman would show up again. Never saw her again. Probably served me right.

    Yes, men really are that shallow. I should know!

    Love to about silly things like that that you've seen or heard. You know, take men, women, add alcohol and bake in the tropical sun; someone's bound to say something dumb!


    Have a great weekend.

    Heard this at Lacabana Pata Pata bar and I think it worked
    Him-Hi, can I take you to paradise?
    Her- Im already there.
    Him- See how quick I work.
    Not sure what transpired after that, I had to walk away or I was going to pee myself laughing.

    See? That's the kind of romantic lines we're looking for.

    Us guys really can be predictable at times and Aruba seems to provide us with lots of opportunities to show just how shallow we can be.

    For guys like us, a good pair of mirrored sunglasses are just as indispensible to an Aruba vacation as sunscreen. When used correctly, both can help avoid a lot of needless aches and pains.

    I have an almost foot in the mouth cheesy pickup line my sometimes clueless husband came close to using on our waitress at Aqua Grill.

    A little background: Years ago, when Hooters was closer to downtown, our boys, then 10 and 14 wanted to go, so, being on vacation, we said fine. My 14 yr, when he saw the building, said, "Wow, that's the biggest Hooters I've ever seen!" (It was in a huge building) Our cab driver and we laughed our heads off, but that wasn't the last time his face turned beet red that night. Our younger son has always been a bit of a flirt, and at ten, it's still charming. Our waitress was cute as a button, and he was smitten. I asked her if we could take her picture with him, and she said sure, but after we took the one pic, she blew a whistle, and all the waitresses ran over for a picture with both boys. The picture is so funny because my older son's face is so red, and it wasn't from the sun.

    Anyway, that's the reason why my husband, who has the most uncanny ability to never forget a face anyway, could recognize this girl almost 10 years later, because her picture is in my son's room.

    Last summer, we were at Aqua Grill, and he whispered to me that our waitress (now around 30) was our waitress at Hooters. There was no way I would have picked up on that without him pointing it out, and I still wasn't sure. He was 90% positive he was right, and said he was going to ask her. There was nothing wrong with asking her, except he's a 50 yr old tourist, and it seemed a bit creepy for him to ask this young woman if she used to work at Hooters, especially *if* he were wrong. So, I said I'd ask her, and sure enough, she was. We told her the story, and we all had a big laugh over it.

    Hi Corona,

    You are a very thoughtful and understanding spouse; helping your husband out like that. And it's fun when you can laugh at it.

    I don't know about your husband, but at 59 I still haven't developed that most important of skills when in Aruba; the casual glance. Even with a pair of mirrored, wrap-around sunglasses my wife still knows where I'm looking.

    Have a super day.

    As soon as the ring is on the finger, we know what you are thinking and where you are looking. Just like as soon as the baby is born, us mothers now have eyes in the back of our heads to see everything and extra good hearing to hear everything!
