From the motherland: Ronald Capone II’s trip to South Korea

One of Sheepie’s longest flock mates is Ronald Capone II.

Ron, a resident of Niagara Falls, recently traveled to with Niagara Universityย to South Korea, where he was born. This homecoming trip of sorts was filled with all kinds of adventure.

Ron was kind enough to sit down with Sheepie Niagara for an interview after his return from across the globe.

๐Ÿ “So Ron, how does it feel to be back home (in Niagara Falls)?”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท “Well, it’s a little different lifestyle. Specifically the weather.”

๐Ÿ”I think we can all agree with that! Why did you want to go to Korea?”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “I was born there, and I wanted to experience what home was like.”

๐Ÿย “You know I have to ask this: what was the first thing you ate when you got there?”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “Krispy Kreme.”

๐Ÿย *salivating* “SHUT UP!”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “I’m serious: they had Krispy Kreme at the airport.”

๐Ÿย “Okay: what was the firstย Korean foodย you had in Korea?”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “Technically I had fried pork, rice, and milk that tasted like Sierra Mist.”

๐Ÿย “It’s called Mist Twist now, you know.”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “Whatever.”

๐Ÿย “What’s the most memorable thing you did in Korea?”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “Learn how to K-Pop dance.”

๐Ÿย “Oh, boy…”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “It was an experience.”

๐Ÿย “I know: I saw the photos.”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “But you didn’t see theย videos.

๐Ÿย “Moving on. I heard you went to the DMZ. Tell me about that.”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “It was intimidating at first, to be completely honest. We were able to dress up as soldiers and made our own dog tags.”

๐Ÿย “So, did you meet your mandatory military requirement?”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “…next question.”

๐Ÿย “Tell us one crazy story from your trip (I know you have some).”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “Oh, crap.”

๐Ÿย “Hey, Sheeps needs some tabloid fodder.”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “I got in a taxi cab, and told the driver to take me to Line 6. Instead, he drove me into a different city on the highway.”

๐Ÿย “That sounds awful!”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “It was aย traumaticย experience.”

๐Ÿย “Final question: Niagara Falls or South Korea?”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “Do you want me to take this philosophically?”

๐Ÿย “I want you to take it steamed: what do you think?!”

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย “*%&#$” *laughter*

End of interview.

In all seriousness, Ron is an awesome guy who had an awesome experience. It was awesome living vicariously through him as he traipsed about South Korea. He even brought me back a sheep!

The author would like to thank Ronald Capone II (he’s quite adamant about that II) for the wonderful interview.
