El xili i el meló del bon karma / The good karma chili and melon


Avui podeu escoltar, tot llegint el bloc...

Today you can listen while you read the blog...




Hola, colla pessigolla:

Avui he anat a comprar teca al mercat de verdura de Berkeley, i abans d'anar-hi he preguntat a la dona de la casa si necessitava quelcom del mercat, que jo li anava a buscar. La gent d'aquí es sorprèn molt quan dius aquests tipus de coses... no hi estan gaire avesats.

Doncs la dona, m'ha dit que necessitava una mica de formatge i pasta de full d'arrós. Doncs ja que hi anava, li he fet el favor i les hi he comprat i les hi he donat quan he arribat a casa.

Al cap d'una hora o així, m'ha cridat a casa seva, i m'ha dit que havia preparat xili per sopar (hi van forts els suïssos aquests...) i que n'havia fet un bol per mi, i me l'ha donat. Ja us podeu imaginar que m'ha fet molta il·lusió. Així que he tornat tot xiroi a casa, he deixat el xili a un raconet i he tret un senyor meló que tot just acabava de comprar. N'he tallat la meitat, i li he anat a portar. La dona ha tingut una alegria també, i m'ha dit que el treuria per les postres.

Doncs una bona estona després, quan era treient la roba de l'aixugadora, m'ha cridat la filla petita de la familia, i venia cap a mi amb dos talls de meló ben escurats a la mà. I em diu "ooohhhh és boníssim!!! a mi no m'agrada el meló, però aquest m'encanta!!!" (bona traça que hi té un per triar melons*). Doncs li he dit a la nena que m'acompanyés un segon, i li he tallat un quart més de meló, i ha marxat ben contenta a casa amb el tall de meló.

Al minut ha vingut la mare dient "hahaha, li he dit que sortís a donar-te les gràcies, però no calia que li en donessis més!" "calla calla dona, jo encantat" "és que saps que m'ha dit?: Ja sé que no li hauria d'haver agafat més meló, però és tan bo que no podia dir que noooo!"

Així que somriures per tothom, i xili per mi!!!

Petons!

Hello people!

Today I went to vegetable market, to buy some food. As I had to go, I asked the woman who rents me the little house for if she just needed something from there. She was suprised of me wanting to do her buy... for what I have seen these days, people in USA doesn't seem to be very used to that kind of things.

She told me that she needed some cheese and rice wraps. So I buyied them for her and gave them to her so she didn't had to go.

Later, she called me and explained me that she just had cooked some chili for dinner (woa, those from switzerland have heavy dinners...) and that she had prepared one extra bowl for me. Oh! I was very happy! So I toke my bowl and go home, put it in a corner and toke a big melon I had just buyied. Cut it in two halfs and gave one of them to the woman. She was very happy and told me that she was going to use it as dessert that night.

Later, as I was doing my laundry, the little girl of the family came out with to eaten melon slices and told me "woa... I never use to like melon, but this one is really good! I love it!" (yes, I am good choosing melons :p). I take her to my home, and cut one quarter more of melon and gave it to her, that returned smiling to her home.

A while after, the woman came out and told me "oh... you shouldn't give more melon to her... you are going to have nothing of melon!" and I replied "ohhh, it is ok, she just told that she never likes melon and that one she loves it!" "you know what has she tell me now?: I know that I shouldn't take more melon... but it is so tasty!!!!!"

So smilings for everyone and chili for me!

Have a nice weekend

I'm glad you are good at picking out melons because I'm horrible at it. My favorite melon is watermelon especially when it's really cold and the temperature outside is really hot.
