Sunset Sao Miguel de GostosoOriginally uploaded by mgharris
Out for the afternoon stroll through the heady urban delights of Sao Miguel de Gostoso in Rio Grande do Norte state, Brazil, we happened across this fabulous sunset.The trip through town – a single street lined with colourful bungalows and coconut trees – was livened up considerably for our daughter by the sight of cute young Brazilian guys whose heads turned to check her out.
“I love it when guys check me out,” she murmured to me as she and I walked slowly down the avenue. Meanwhile I nervously adjusted my sarong in case their gazes accidentally strayed. “Look at that one,” she laughed aloud, identifying one of the boys with a flick of her finger. “He’s actually stretching and flexing his muscles in front of me! He likes me! OMG he’s so hot… When we walk back I’m going to give him a Look,” she said. And then set about considering which Look from her repertoire to deploy.
“How do you know this stuff?” I said, amazed. “I didn’t know any of this when I was fifteen.” She replied, deadpan, “Instinct. And I’m just a lot sexier than you.”
Actually my mother could have taught my daughter a thing or twenty about how to mix sex appeal with (apparently irresistable) vulnerability. But sadly she passed away before my daughter was born. So my daughter has to resort to discussing such matters with her mother-the-geek.
I sneakily took a photo of the boy she likes. He was wearing a blue sleeveless shirt that showed off a fairly beefcakey physique. He’s around 18 and has a dimple in his right cheek, which made her swoon. We have decided to refer to him as Blue Boy.
