@DavidArchie family ties (not really)


Break glass and use in case of emergency.

Break glass and use in case of emergency.







A friend sent me this picture, aghast and astonished at how much it looks like David. From the neck up, of course.

No surprise at all, I said. It’s actually a picture of Fernando, David’s third cousin once removed and twice replaced, by marriage, on his mother’s side.

He grew up in a little shirt-optional fishing village outside Santiago protected by St. Buff, the patron saint of well-toned abs.

In fact, town bylaws prohibit the fastening of all shirt buttons. That’s why Fernando looks Β frantic in this picture. He’s about to be ticketed for a cover-up.

The resemblance is so startling, he’s mistaken for David anytime he wears a grandpa sweater or buys a crate of mangoes. He can no longer frequent Thai restaurants.

Lately, Fernando and David have been able to share family stories, and their love of music. Fernando doesn’t sing but he hums beautifully. This helps strengthen his diaphragm on such Christmas classics as Six-Pack-A-Pan,Β Chest Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire, and Little Ripped Drummer Boi.

Fernando’s father is from Honduras, his mother from Paris. He recently returned to his mom’s birthplace to enter a Speedo-sponsored tanning contest. David’s advice when he lost?

“Don’t give up ’cause you’re half-French.”

*hides for eternity*

    LOLOL You have outdone yourself with this post! You made my day. πŸ˜€

    These “Fernando doesn’t sing but he hums beautifully,” “third cousin once removed and twice replaced,” and “don’t give up cuz you’re half-French” had me ROFL. And … is that a wedding ring hanging around his neck? Wasn’t there a rumor about that recently? πŸ˜‰

    The first time I saw the term, “half-french”, I thought, “How rude!…” And this time there is a giggle in me that just won’t stop! TOfan! You are an unbelievable genius! I enjoy your “outside the box” impressions so very much. Thanks for sharing.

    This is so hilarious, all of it! Can’t pick a fave part, did a double take for sure..at that photo, haha.
    Your incredible wit makes me think you should be writing a screenplay for David TOfan….maybe a romantic comedy. It could take place in that “little shirt-optional fishing village outside Santiago”

  19. Utahmom says:

    There are many SEO India firms operating in the country but it is important to select the right organization to get the best result.
    Many companies also offer to train people under their SEO reseller programs to
    help them get more companies looking for SEO assistance and earn a better commission at the same time but before you join any program make sure to join an SEO firm that is going to
    compensate you well for the business you will be bringing for the firm.
    How to Hire: If your SEO company is going to specialize in digital design, it’s important to have a designer on board.
