Un Aviso

Un Aviso

One home remedy a friend (supposedly successfully) tried for the flu/cold/cough ailment that’s been going around is a tea made of eucalyptus leaves and bougainvillia flowers.  I told her, like I tell my mom (who also insists on making tea out of the random vegetation surrounding our house), to always leave behind some evidence of whatever she put in the tea on the kitchen table.  

“Así, si te encuentran patas pa’ ‘riba, saben lo que tomaste.”

The way I see it, if they’re ever accidentally poisoned by one of their concoctions, at least I can tell the police what they had (or that they were making a beautiful wreath) before they died.
