Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
English girls are trouble.

But a lot of fun.

The two girls I mentioned above had a way of getting themselves into situations they expected me to help them with.

Case in point.  The American girl started something she had no attention of finishing with this guy at a club, so the place closes out and as we're leaving she comes up beside me and says to hold her hand.  I was sort of pissed at her at the time.  But I agree.

So this guy comes up behind us, and starts talking to her.  She tells him that I'm her boyfriend (a lie and a painful one since she alternately would be my best friend and cold to me.), then he starts chatting it up with this other girl who was out with us.  

No dice.

She says that I'm here boyfriend too.

At this point this guy is no longer horny, he's angry at me.  And he starts going on saying "you have two I only want one"  and I'm seriously think that this guy is going to start some shit with me.  I was so pissed at both of these girls that I ditched them both on the way home, and got lost.  I was only wearing a T-shirt, and it was freezing.  So eventually the sun rises and I find my way home past all the ETA inspired grafitti, which is sort of disconcerting until you realize they don't give a shit about you because you're not Spanish.

Later, I would get my troubles for these two the American and the English girl paid back in full.  I was at the Americans flat and hadn't drank water all day long, so I passed out while talking to her.  I left a dent with my chin on her hardwood floors.  I split upon my chin.

So they both babysat me for the next 10 hours at the hospital as I got sewed up.  Funny story, the nurse is telling me I'm going to need 3 puntas stiches, I was a little bit out of it, so I have the two girls with me at the hospital (and a whole fuckin mess of Erasmus students too) and I say to the nurse that I only need one because I've got two putas that's Spanish for bitches, with me.  Like I said I was out of it.

Altogether my experience with Spanish hospitals was ok.  It was only 150 euros for stiches, xray and blood test.

I miss those two girls though.  I said something to the English girl that upset her so we haven't talked since I left Spain.  The two of them became good friends through me, but no dice. The English girl though, if it weren't for the ocean, I would have made it work.

Women. The moment we men condemn them for the troubles they cause us we make ass of ourselves and they pay us back for they things we done for them.

I seem to recall that being in my contract, too, but it has failed to materialize in most cases, and hence my efforts to keep fully stocked with alcohol, nicotine and male friends.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
