Jesús and I were supposed to get ice cream on Monday, but things didn't work out. This didn't phase my easy-going (therefore, clearly non-estadounidense) friend.
"Sabes que dice el camello?" (Do you know what the camel says?)
"Aún nos queda mucho desierto para recorrer." (We still have plenty of desert left to walk over.)
Jesús' astute recognition that Sparky's isn't going anywhere.
