Thanks, but I think I'll hire a tutor. Seems somehow more civilized. Anyone know where I can get a tutor?
The guys going north may have no sense of humor - and I agree they don't - but they are unlikely to lock me up for bringing in a fern. A Marijuana plant, probably.
Oddly enough, a trunk full of illegals - no. They almost never prosecute the driver of illegals. They just turn them loose. Wouldn't it be ironic, if they put me in jail for bringing in a fern and let the next driver go, when they find him with a whole clown car full of illegals.
My favorite border story of all time was one time when I lived in Las Cruces, NM. Being poor college students, we used to go to Juarez to get stuff for parties. One time, my wife insisted that we bring back some mangos. I explained to her that they were not allowed. No deal. We had to have mangos.
At the border I expected the usual, "nationality, what are you bringing back, etc." Instead, "Nationality. Are you bringing back any mangos." I didn't answer that question, but I did recite the whole array of stuff we had brought back for the party until Ihe was so bored he sent us on our merry with our mangos.
