Buenos días, my dear Esperanza, and in light of your following communication with me:

Oscar, I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you've written.
It's the rest of what you posted that throws me for a loop:
I'm stumped by what you mean by that, but it's definitely not part of the joke
don't (like the proverbial rat) desert the ship!
How can anyone conceivably feel less then the warm atmosphere of your welcomed parlor?
Not that the trifles of decorum is of any consequence but when one defines themselves with the need of always being “right,” someone or something has to always be wrong. What is the percentage of emotional positive returns in always having to wrong someone? Short lived, transitory and at best an ego based false sense of self, and on, and on...........
Finding the wrongs in life is too easy. Mentoring wrongs can be an endless, creative art whose colors define the artist and a person’s “sense of self.” You don’t have to be clever nor brave to weather on coming storms, just aware of why and from whom they come from.
Life is simple but our “so called intelligence” sometimes gets in the way and makes things intense and complicated? Some like it this way and some are conditioned and know no different.
As for talking about recipes, on second thought, it’s not such a bad idea, especially now that my wife is on a 3-week mother visit back east. I’ve never been a practiced cook because Mi Senora handles this very well. But since she’s been gone, it’s opened up a whole new world of palatable kitchen adventures.
I just love cutten and choppen all kinds of fresh veggies like red onions, yellow onions, various types of lettuce, multi colored bell peppers, tomatoes, scallions and just about anything cold and crisp, garnished with raspberry raisins, walnuts and feta cheese with various delicious salad dressings. The world of cool crisp salads is coming alive by yours truly. I know, save it for the Kitchen Forum and I will.
Once a Kitchen thread centered on the scarceness of yellow onions, so when I saw them en la tienda, I scooped them up and made haste en la cocina. I will in future try on this Learning Spanish forum to describe my kitchen misadventures in Spanish. Especially trying to get the correct names and spelling of various types of edibles. Now that would truly help me tremendously iin describing the meal and its ambiance.
