Husband Hunting: The Phagwah Parade

This weekend was the Phagwah or Holi parade in Richmond Hill, Queens. It was also a tremendous opportunity. What better place to find myself a West Indian husband (as my mother has threatened to find for me many many times. Because it would make me happy, damnit!)?

But guys, there was a problem.  The choices were a little slim!

First up were these boys. They look good and know how to keep rhythm (a plus), but I dunno, you know what they say about drummers…

Then there was pair. I’ve always been a Hanuman fan (mostly because I like monkeys) …

But there was something about Krishna that was appealing. Unfortunately he’s a little too “Avatar” for me (Ugh, that movie ruins everything).

Whatcha thinking about Krishna?

This one’s too young:

And this one’s too old:

This one’s too into his makeup and jewelry. Plus he already has a whole entourage of ladies:

And mom would definitely not approve of these two:

But wait! Who’s this vision?

This guy has everything a West Indian girl could want. Note 1) The cup of hard alcohol just a little after noon:

2) The huge Om necklace. He must be really religious! And

3) The wedding ring. Oh.


And he coulda been the one, too. Sorry mom! We’ll get ’em next time, promise.
