Finding humor in the 'oops' moments...
|Text from me to my son Jack. |
Once you're done laughing at me, read on to see how I ended up in this mess....
|Costa Baja, La Paz Captain's lounge|
|Jack in the act of letting me out - this is after he laughed at me|
The next day I went to a large grocery store, Soriana. One of the items I needed was a pound of ground beef. Well, I knew I needed to order it in kilograms, so I did a quick conversion. I asked the butcher, in my best Spanish, for 2 kilos of ground beef. He began gathering and wrapping up what looked like a HUGE amount of beef. It was then that I realized I had converted in the wrong direction - I should have requested less than half a kilogram. At this point, I was too embarrassed to ask him to take back over 4 pounds of ground beef, so I took it like I was making burgers for 20. Kids, learn the metric system!!
|Lots of frozen ground beef in my freezer|
On a side note - I'm cleaning out a cupboard, anyone need any of this?
|Probably don't need this anymore.|
