Sometimes Kody struggles with going out of town with one wife because then it sets up expectations for the others. If he goes on a super vacay with one, he has to plan and pay for three more super vacays. Meri agrees – she was excited on her birthday when she found out but she had to contain it so as not to rub it in the other wives’ faces. It’s hard to get excited when you know three other people are only sort of happy for you.
“Yaaaaay,” whispered Meri as quietly as possible
Robyn says she was not jealous when Kody presented Meri with a trip to Mexico for her birthday. Janelle agrees; Meri deserved a bigger gift than usual since she got double jipped last year. Christine admits that she started thinking about her next vacay after momentarily being happy for Meri.
“Like you two weren’t thinking the same thing. Whatevs, I keeps it real, yo!”
At least they go on trips. Kody says that some polygamists don’t do anything nice or take vacations with one wife because they want to avoid jealousy issues. I wonder if this is true for his brother Scott and his wives?
Meri and Kody have visited Mexico together before. This time they’re staying in a condo instead of doing an all inclusive resort. That’s probably cheaper. And their condo is right on the beach. BONUS! Kody says he could spit that distance from their balcony to the ocean. EEEW! They’re beat so they turn in upon arrival.
It’s a beautiful day in Mexico when they wake up the next day. Meri wants to play on the beach but they have plans already. They are going to climb pyramids then visit caves. They arrive at the pyramid and it’s really cool. It also looks like the set for the movie The Ruins. I hope they don’t get eaten by killer plants! Side note – The Ruins is one of my guilty pleasure horror movies even though it is ridiculous.
While Meri and Kody climb pyramids, Christine and Janelle are off to take the real estate exam. Janelle is nervous or she has the flu as her stomach is going crazy. She’s nervous about the test and she doesn’t feel like she studied everything. Christine has taken practice exams before but not the licensing exam.
“Let’s make this test our bitch. Brown wives HOLLA!!”
Robyn is really excited for them because (a) she gets really excited easily and (b) they’ve both studied like crazy. Janelle really wants to get the license because they need all the income they can get. After the exam, they’re going to lunch with Robyn and they’ll call Kody and Meri with their results.
“Janelle and Christine are taking a test, which is really exciting! Then, we’re going to EAT LUNCH! IN A RESTAURANT! TOGETHER! I am sooooo excited!!!”
Things at the pyramid have taken a turn for the embarrassing; Kody has sweat his pants. Now that’s a new one. It’s not pretty:
I never needed to see Kody from this angle, but at least now I know I should never wear khakis if I’m going to get sweaty.
Meri is laughing at him and taking pics, which is exactly what I would be doing. At the top of the pyramid, they marvel at the canopy that extends as far as the eye can see.
After climbing back down, ol’ Drippy Drawers freaks out their cave tour guide when he refers to one of his other wives. They’re polite about it, but clearly they were caught off guard.
“HAHAHAHA look at their faces! It never gets old!”
The male tells Kody he’s the man, and the lady is like “are you for real?” They put it behind them and head to a Mayan village to go visit an underground freshwater lake. I WANT TO GO!!!
