He must be from another planet, that’s for sure. Planet Aurimar, where forever-smiling Aurimarians are trying to save the world, with the energy levels of 7-year olds and the humility of The Dalai Lama. “I am your slave” is not an uncommon expression used by my host, as he quite literally backs out of my room, bowing deeply. Recently the following conversation has started to take place between us several times a day:
“I love you!”
“Er…. Obrigada…” (me, embarrassed)
“Don’t mention it.” He adds, heroically.
If everyone were like him, this earth might actually have a chance to survive.
