Yes, tv show again. I have a tv on all the time, when home, because it helps me ignore the strange noises in the house. It was a fun movie/pilot. The point, however, is this:
My new life plan is to move to Botswana and become a detective! The character Precious is so brilliant! She sort of stumbles into solving the cases, but whatever. She's friendly, she's funny (sometimes without meaning to be), and all the bright colors. *Everyone* dresses so colorfully, and 99% of the time, the women are wearing brightly colored scarves on their heads. I'd fit right in!
Yes, there are flaws to the plan. A) Show is fictional B) I don't speak Botswanan (not the actual name of the language) C) not a detective. Aside from all that, perfect! Forget being a farm wife! I've read Sherlock Holmes, and every Batman comic ever! I can do this.
But seriously, if I could get away with dressing like they do on the show, and not have people staring at me like a circus freak? I would.
