hilarious sms...

I got this hilarious sms from my sister on behalf of her boyfriend Ilya.

What are you up to? Ilya is asking if you need to be kissed under a tree ;o).


How considerate of him :o))! My answer was though that I have not been kissed for so many years that no harm will be done adding one more to it...

For those confused:
1st May is day of love in Czech... and guys actually do a favour to a girl if they kiss her under a blossoming cherry tree, as that ensures the girl will blossom herself as well fot the upcoming year and she will not dry or fade.

For guys:
I really pity those guys who do not live in Czech republic...
Imagine that:
* one day per year you are allowed to whip any girl you like as hard as you want and even get drinks for it.
* one day per year you are to allowed to kiss a girl under a tree and she should be willing and glad to let you kiss her.
* and what is the charming part about it... 30th April is the day when witches are being burnt... So on that day you can burn all ugly girls and straight the next day, on the 1st of May you are left with only beautiful ones to be kissed!! ;o)

Take that, Bembridge Scholars!

hahahaha, I advice though to come only next spring... cause you have missed all the fun for this year. The next thing I recall is on the 13th November when girls run with wooden spoons to pubs and start to poke guys with it to get them out of there... ;o)... so you would probably not like that :o) since our beer is so good!

hehe, ensure you have the whip and come for the Easter Monday :o)... I can supply you with info, but I guess I will ensure to get out of the country, so that I do not have the pleasure of being whipped myself :o)))

I think as many as you want. In Prague it is not that big, but in villages, especially Moravia, as the guys get drunker they whip more and they take it seriously. So some girls might have problem to sit for a week. :o)
