Spanish Thoughts

Better than walking spanish down the hall is actually walking in Spain.  It has been really nice here for the past few days, with weather not too hot nor cold.  It is just right, although I would like it to be a little warmer when I go to the beach Saturday.

My friends Andrew and Jamie have been taking great care of me and still are able to get their work done.  That has been cool, because I certainly didn’t want to be in the way as their guest.  On the contrary they have made me feel most welcome indeed.  I have even gone with them to the local gym where today we did a boxing workout.  That was pretty fun, let me tell you.  I am a little sore from pulling punches, though, because I didn’t want to hurt the instructor.  Actually he was a crusty old guy who could probably have knocked me out with one punch after toying with me until I was exhausted.

Hopefully I’ll be a little more able to write now that my course has finished. See you soon, wherever you are.

What on earth is “walking spanish down the hall?”

I’m glad you’re having fun. Are you doing the
cooking?

from book review, “The Cornered Office: Joshua Ferris’ debut novel ‘Then We Came to the End’ rockets into the Dilbertian universe of cubicle life,” by Gordon Hauptfleisch, San Diego Union-Tribune, March 11, 2007:
The phase “Walking Spanish down the hall” originally comes from the days of piracy on the Spanish Main, when the pirates would lift their captives by the scruff of the neck and force them to walk with their toes barely touching the deck. A more recent usage in a Tom Waits song describes a similarly ominous tottering as those unfortunate souls make their way toward execution.

I haven’t done any cooking…yet
