Jen Smith of Harrison County and Smith Horse Farm in southern Indiana was overheard enlightening Mexican locals about life in the United States of America earlier today.
‘Every little girl gets a pony,’ she told the bewildered ‘natives’ José and Marlene, who had had the misfortune of choosing an adjacent table at the all-inclusive resort bar as Jen polished off her third watery margarita, ‘una how do you say it, caBAlo, and every little boy gets keys to a Mustang, vroom vroom when he is sixteen. Not like here I imagine.’
‘She thinks we are native to Acapulco, but we are here on vacation from Mexico City,’ Marlene told The Gorko in perfect English. ‘My parents are ranchers in Pachuca, so we sometimes take our little girls there to learn to ride.’
A little while later the American tourist tried to pay for the couple’s drinks. ‘No no no no no no no,’ she shouted when José objected, ‘I can’t let you pay for those.’
‘I am a bank executive in the capital of this country,’ José told The Gorko. ‘I make more money a week than she does in two months.’
‘It’s an all. Inclusive. Resort,’ added Marlene.
