Yesterday at comida, we had this delectible tortilla soup. We also had potato salad and porkchops. They was really yummy.
Today at breakfast, we had double decker toasted sandwiches with beans and cheese. They were good, but it certainly wasn't our favorite meal. Lunch was much better. We had chicken sauteed in some kind of delicious red sauce, with tomato, beans, tacos, salad and the tastiest cookies n' cream ice cream we've ever had.
Today after school, there was pretty much no traffic. This is unusual because normally, it takes us several minutes to get home due to the traffic at 3:00 (the time of comida and when all the kids get out of school). The reason that there was no traffic is that today at 1:00 Mexico plays England in futbol (soccer). Everyone is CRAZY about futbol here.
Also, we forgot to mention that the other day at the quincinera, our Uncle Victor stole this little plastic horse from a small child. We thought that surely he was going to give it back and so, with a scolding from our Mama about how stealing is a sin, we decided to let it go. Later, however, when we returned to our house, we decided to play cards. In the middle of the card game, what should appear on the table but the plastic horse! Victor thought it was the most hilarious thing ever. Poor little boy! He doesn't even know what hit him.
In addition to this fun escapade, the other night when we went out dancing, this guy asked us to dance. At first, we thought it would be fine and it was fun at first because he was a really good dancer. However, after one dance with him, he started asking us if we have novios (boyfriends) and when we replied that we did not, he wasted no time asking us if we wanted to be his novias (girlfriends). We told him that we, in fact, did not. We then got with our friend Hector and promptly escaped out the back of the restaurant so that the creepy guy would stop dancing with us. We have decided to call him Mr. Stiffly Starched Striped Shirt because he was, in fact, sporting one the other night.
Well, I suppose that is all for today. Hasta pronto!
