Hehe, was it my unexpected beauty or my unexpected ugliness that surprised you?
:))) What was I supposed to look like, eh? A long-haired and bearded blonde

LOL. Yes, Muke and me wouldn't easily be mistaken for each other's twin

Yes, I've heard that more often. Even people who didn't know anything about my

language with remarkable ease. Perhaps I was a Pole in my former life, after
all. Or who knows, perhaps the mailman was a Pole? :))
