Negotiating with The Green Card Cupid
I'm trying to manifest a green card for real, and one for John. The thing that I wanted on the playa was to spontaneously receive one.
As it turned out, I saw my opportunity, but I did have to ask for it. Actually, I had to negotiate for it :)
Me: Hey, I need a Green Card!
Green Card Cupid: "are you looking to marry an American for a green card"
me: "well, I'd prefer a different option...it's not out of the question but I'm already married and I don't want to get divorced"
GCC: "well, I don't think I can find anyone who wants to marry someone who's already married"
Me: "c'mon - Polyandry - it's not unheard of"
GCC: "well, you can fill out the form, I guess"
me: "look, strictly for voodoo purposes I would love it if you would take a picture of me with your Green Card form. It would help me a lot"
So there you have it, sometimes if you want it bad enough ya gotta ask for it directly.
