Scott’s All-in-One Spanish Lesson Curtosy Of Nelly…

Bilingual Nelly is also trying to sort Scott’s life out for him too as he said he wouldn’t mind trying to learn Spanish to woo an unsuspecting South American at a later stage in his life…Personally i think he needs to sort his gut out first then start becoming the silver tongued maverick he’s always dreamed of being. Either way this is what he touched upon with Nelly in the time we travelled together..Thanks Nelly ;)Hola Shrimpy!!
