¡Ay Caramba!

This is what San Geraldo said when he saw a beautiful crepe (mine) drizzled with dark-chocolate fudge sauce at Restaurante Primavera.

"Oy Cabana!!!"

Obviously what he meant was "Ay Caramba!!!" When Mai, our charming waitress, seemed perplexed, he looked at me and said, "That's not right, IS it?"

INDESCRIBABLY DELICIOUS. OY CABANA!!!
MY COFFEE THAT NIGHT.
LEFT: WHAT I WAS SERVED. RIGHT: WHAT I IMAGINED.

  2. At first I thought you were served the face drawn in and I was amazed by the talent. Then I realized that you drew it in and I was amazed by the talent.

    One thing I laughed at when I first met Carlos was that he would sometimes say, "Oy! Mi madre!" instead of "Ay! Mi Madre!"
    Since we had several Jewish friends I assumed he was just going multi-lingual.

  6. Your posts too often make my stomach growl. Too much magnificent food. I'd be bigger than those giant black bull signs if I were exposed to suck edible treasures.
