The Bottom With The Tapas / El Trasero Con Las Tapas

THIS WAS ALMOST on our table last week at the café we've been going to lately (because our favorites are closed for vacation). I'm glad I was only having coffee. Do you think he's a plumber, or a builder.

The coffee had a bitter aftertaste.

ESTO FUE CASÍ en nuestra mesa la semana pasada en el café al que hemos estado yendo últimamente (porque nuestros favoritos están cerrados por vacaciones). Me alegra que solo estuviera tomando un café. ¿Crees que es un un fontanero — o un constructor. 

El café tenía un regusto amargo.

      Especially unpleasant to stare down the crack of over morning coffee. And the poor people who would sidle around him to select tapas from the case. Not very good for business, I would say.

      It's called La Esquinita, in Los Boliches on Calle Benalmádena just off the corner of Avenida de las Salinas. Not my favorite place for coffee, which is often not good, but very good for 1 euro tapas of a great variety.

      Santorini is freshly painted with new furniture and a brand new terrace. They did a great job.

      That's actually the nickname for the asscrack here in Spain, la hucha, which is a coin slot! You're so clever. And if that's where I have to put the coins, I'm swearing off coffee!

      I don't care how cute they are; they should be put away when stationed at a tapas bar or a foot away from my morning coffee.

      Ew, you actually found those exposed thongs attractive?!? Ew! I'd rather see plain old plumber's crack.

      That was Jerry's question (as it usually is). And it was especially cold last week. He'd have to know that bare skin was exposed.

      Oh groan. Two other guys were at the counter that day in various stages of "exposure." I just couldn't get photos of them. I just don't get it.

      I didn't mean to suggest anyone needed to lose weight. A little more discretion is all I ask. Have some ice cream! You would never appear like that anyway!

      I'm so glad our beach bar re-opened yesterday. Although you can imagine what we see there given many customers roll in off the sand for a quickie. (As long as they put a towel down on the chair, I don't mind.)

  13. Once we were out and a butt crack was on display.. my uncle is the family comedian, he asked us for a coin to put in the slot, then to remind him to post that letter, then suggested someone should have brought along a bike to park.

    I do not like to see butt crack on the street. I do not mind the occasional handsome tradesman butt crack. Unfortunately street butt crack is mostly what I see now and it is Not Pretty. Thanks fashion designers! :)

      Hucha is a Spanish word sometimes used for butt crack. It means coin slot, piggy bank, slot. Your uncle was bilingual
