You will need to know a couple of things.
First, here in Haiti, it is very dusty and hot. Things, people and animals get very dirty in a single day.
Second, my son's full experience with horror movies is limited to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' video.
So, you can imagine my surprise and amusement the other day when, as he was looking at my hands, he made the following statement about my fingernails:
"Man! They look like something out of a horror movie!"
And of course 10-year old boys' fingernails always sparkle....
