Life's Like That

Spanish never came easy for my sister. Still she did her best to communicate with the spanish-speaking staff at the restaurant she managed.

But when she made mistakes--- and she made a lot of them---she'd apologise by saying, "Me estupido". Finally a member of her staff took some pity on her. " Susanna, you're not estupido", she said, bucking my sister's ego.

" You're a woman", she then continued, "so you're estupida".
