A conversation with local jewelry store owner
Him: Sergeant, you need Diamond ring? I give you good deal?
Me: No thanks.
Him: You have wife Sergeant?
Him: You know what American Soldier say?
Me: What’s that?
Him: you know happy wife, a happy life. Your wife need diamond.
Me: My wife needs a lobotomy, not a diamond.
Him: What is that?
Me: It means she needs her brain examined.
Him: You do that to your wife?
(It wasn’t until after I left that I hoped he didn’t go back to his village and try to give his wife a lobotomy)
