Hombre, what’s the matter with you? You’re all uptight. Where is your little friend? Miranda, Monica, Marcela, or whatever? What’s her name?
“Monica. I was over there earlier. She’s in a mood.”
What did you do?
“El Guapo, I did nothing. Nada. I just went over there and she started yelling at me.”
“Si. Her special visitor is among us.”
Ah. That’s not so bad though.
“I know. I don’t mind it either. But when it comes, she shuts down.”
What do you mean she shuts down?
“She shuts down. You know. She shuts down. It’s movie time when her special visitor comes. Movies with John Cusack. It’s horrible.”
I still don’t get it. Why does she shut down?
“She says that she doesn’t like it when her visitor is in town?”
She doesn’t like it?
“She doesn’t like it. The restaurant shuts down.”
But why does it have to shut down? She’s just out of arroz con leche. You can still have flan, ice cream…
“Fruit, pupusas, tamales, si, I know. Not with her. If she’s out of arroz con leche, she shuts down the restaurant. It’s closed for a couple of days.”
Restaurant is closed.
“Restaurant is closed.”
So what are you doing tonight?
“I don’t know. I can’t deal with that. I'm hungry. I’m going to go see if there are any other restaurants open tonight. Interested?”
You better believe it.
