Hello Mint Braves,
I owe everybody an explanation for my sudden absence of reports from the Amazon jungle.
Unfortunately, I had to leave the area in a hurry.
As I mentioned some time ago, the chief here was apprehensive about the mating season of the Amazonians, those attractive, fierce female warriors.
October is their time. They raid the villages and abduct any braves that they take a fancy to.
So, the tribe has, in the past, lost some of the best young men.
Needless to say that most young braves don't mind, and as a matter of fact, they always welcome this event.
The Amazonian warriors, by the way, are tall, blond women of extreme femininity. They have no men in their tribe, and they are very excited when they meet their first favorite mate.
They can't resist the call of nature, you see.
So, the expedition had to leave the area before this event took place, being afraid that we might lose some of our best men.
Being a very attractive fellow myself, I was afraid that I might be held permanently a hostage by these beautiful females. Although the experience would be most exciting , to say the least. You see, I am bored with our civilized way of life.
Life in the jungle is what the creator intended it to be, ideal for humans and animals alike.
But, I have been wondering what happens to the men after these pretty females get bored with them; I hear divorce is unknown here. Could some of the shrunken heads in the jungle market be the product that results from some sort of a divorce? I wonder!
I wouldn't take a chance, anyway. Besides, there are no lawyers here.
Anyway, it's too high a price to pay for some wild excitement.
So, back in civilization again, with all of the humdrum, nerve racking noise and anxiety, depression, and civilized shrinks that charge many times more than witch doctors in the jungle. But guess what, the shrinks here don't charge anything! They're only interested in your cerebellum; not your pocketbook!
So, enough for today, my dear friends.
More to follow later.
