("Buen provecho" is the same as "bon appetit" — "enjoy your meal" in English.)
San Geraldo looked at me perplexedly and asked:
"Why did she say 'leche' [milk] after I said, 'gracias' [thank you]?
|SOMETIMES, I GET TIRED OF BEING SO NICE.|
The different Andalusian village accents are not easy to understand. This young woman is from a small pueblo and even the other staff tease her about how she swallows her words.
Still, I could have had a really good time (for myself) with San Geraldo.
I could have told him, "It's an odd local custom, but you really should do it as well. Whenever someones says "Thank you," you're supposed to respond, "Milk!"
I'm so nice. I hope he appreciates how lucky he is.
