… a homemade spinach tamale and jugo de melón

27 Jul

  It’s amazing how the whole day can change with a good plate of food!

To top off what already felt like a long day at work, two of our clients showed up half an hour late for a meeting this afternoon.  Frustrated, the first words out of my mouth were going to be the grumpy interrogation “why were you so late??!”

but

before I had a chance to say anything, one of the women asked “would you like a tamale and cantaloupe juice?”

so, instead, the first words out of my mouth, were a grateful and eager “yes, please, thank you”.

and as I happily nibbled and sipped I reflected on my mood change, realizing that if someone brings me tasty food it really is okay that they are late.
