The thing I can say best in Spanish is “Mi Espanol es muy mal,” which means, “My Spanish is very bad.” I have practiced saying it so many times that I pronounce it perfectly and the Mexicans in Oaxaca, where my sister, Janet, and I recently spent much of this past February and March, didn’t believe me.

I’ve heard some people say they adore lobster, but they’ve never actually eaten one—not really. These people have been served a lobster tail in a restaurant, sometimes alongside a hunk of steak.

Why not get right to the point? I don’t like winter. It’s an annual refrain anyone who knows me has heard.

Wearing layers of shirts and sweaters indoors, especially when cooking, is cumbersome.
