Ordering Out

My mother asked for the “Corned beef and garbage” at the Norm’s diner.

She must have seen my left eyebrow rise ever so slightly, because she follow up her request by asking “Comó se dice ‘repollo’ en íngles?”

“Se dice ‘cabbage’.” I answered.

“Lo bueno es que se preguntar,” she smiled.
