You forgot someone’s name? Just call them ‘Dushi’…!
You’re not surprised when you get ‘bon pasku’ weeks after Christmas…
You order Polar ‘ku kup di eis’ (= with a cup of ice)
You understand that ‘don’t drink and drive’ means ‘bai poko poko’ (= go slow slow)
You have a ton of ‘ooms and tantes’ (= aunts and uncles) that aren’t even remotely related to…
You sometimes wake up craving pastechi*…
* Code for many things… local politicians sometimes accept pastechis from local businesses to fill their… hummm… tummies. Our Aruban siblings liken their pastechis to sex… and there’s even a Pastechi fan page on Facebook!
