37. you know the funny thing
I have always worked with Indians. I admire their family values, they actually walk the walk. They respect those around them. I would tell them we need more of people like you in this country and if I were to ever marry again I am gonna take me an Indian. They would laugh of course as I say the last part in jest. You are a lucky person to be married to one
