What’s yo numba? Can I have it?

Lets be honest: if you are white in Jamaica you stick out. Second fact: if you are a woman in Jamaica, black or white, you get a lot of unwanted attention. Thus far in our stay here I haven’t found the unwanted attention to daunting. However, as we go out in public more in Stony Hill many (not all) men have no problems yelling things at us. Some things are lewd, some are flattering. Either way they really just want to get in your pants. Many of the females in my group have found that if you approach a potential unwanted attention situation and greet them their expressions immediately change and the tone of the conversation stays as you want it: short and sweet. There are a few men, however, who are extremely persistent and the best way to explain what that situation is like is to share this old Mad TV skit. Don’t judge. I know its old but I still laugh every time I see it. What’s yo numba?
