Re: What is it about me

Guys - it doesn't matter how pretty she is if the windows are tinted.

It's actually an insider tip - whenever I wanted to smuggle something I started to look for a Dutch minivan or camper and followed it for the last kms to the border - no matter how slow they were. If there is a check, it always hits them and then not me. Works like a charm. Every time.

Re: What is it about me

My Swiss colleague always takes off her sunglasses, smiles and winds down the window, drives through slowly as if ready to stop and gets waved through even when I'm a passenger.

When I start driving here it might be another story though.

You are obviously stunningly beautiful, but you must be mightily thick if you can't understand why you're being stopped.
Men are such suckers on teh intertubes.

That's not her, that's me!

Being on EF and being the mama of 4 kids doesn't mean you can't be amazingly beautiful, why not ?

I think it depends which border crossing one uses and how bored the guys are, really. Usually, they don't disturb a sleeping baby inside.

Re: What is it about me

In that case, imagine me with dark hair.

Blond doesn't suit me well...

Sky, because I believe she wouldn't put her real picture on a public forum, not because she can't be stunning.
