I have finished my class.
Every time I take a class, I try to set my expectations accordingly. If I learn one new thing, I'm pleased. Just one. Sometimes I don't even get that one thing. If I learn more than one thing, well, huzzah! How great is that?
In this class, I learned one thing.
And, because I'm a big believer in education for all and I'm all about paying it forward and I used to have a friend that would always say "Share the wealth" when he meant "Share what you know", I'm about to share what I learned with you and save you three days of your precious time* and thousands of dollars.
All right. Here it is:
You know how when you take your hand up to the side of your head and point at your head and move your hand in a circle, it means "crazy"? Well, in Argentina, this gesture means you have a phone call.
I swear that's what I was told.
So, next time someone does this to you, don't take offense. Just say, "¿Dónde está el teléfono?"
* I know you have lots to do. Like avoiding that one curled, greenish-brown chip in the potato chip bag. Why does every bag have one? Is it some FDA requirement? A government microchip that you accidentally ingest? What?
** Thanks for sitting up a little straighter and pricking up your ears. You look so cute when you do that. How do you do that?
