THE Negotiator, Bendy Spoons and a wanna be gangsta

Our finer moments include...


1. The Negotiator- No, not the movie. Meet Ash. THE Negotiator. Friday, Ash was in the process of buying a car. Here are the things I learned from him. First, have no shame. When I say no shame, I mean NO SHAME... at all. Second, when bargaining, offering a $50 coupon to the ER is acceptable. Third, if that does not work, offer anything else you have lying around your house that you think they may want. Fourth, pulling into a very wealthy gated community with 3 Egyptians, 1 African American, and me will cause the security guard to be suspicious. Therefore, he called the Yang family first. Fifth, you will no longer be a "brother" if you offer them $2,000 below their asking price.
2. Berripop- The MOST amAAAAzing yogurt shop ever. We went twice over the weekend. They even have very masculine bumper stickers, i mean tattoos. This is now Cindy's favorite place to eat her snack and a lighter option than ice cream.
... they have the cutest "bendy" spoons!!!! I think they would be perfect for a party.

3. Alex will never be a gangster. I know, this is very hard to believe. The picture speaks for itself!



4. Swagger Wagons & signs... deep down Ash REALLY wanted a minivan (aka. swagger waggon). However, he ended up with a 2002 Honda Accord and still has his coupon to the ER.

5. I know I am missing something... we have laughed and laughed and laughed!!!!
