At the Mexican restaurant I’m struck by the word molletes— I’ve never seen it before and for a moment cannot imagine how to pronounce it. I get it wrong then am reminded that the double L’s, as in French, are like Y’s.
Molletes is not MOLEETEZ but MOYEETEZ. And comes with pico de gallo (GAH-YO).
I think I’m getting it.
Not fluent yet, not conversational, but I get the L thing.
It’s a start.
[For the record, I had quesadillas.]
Here’s to family, good friends and good food. May we eat, drink and be merry together in many languages, and in many ways. Or at least may that be the greater goal…
