The title says it all. In the interests of full disclosure, it’s really older women. OK. OK. Not just older, but old. And truth be told, it’s not women, but a woman. I guess adore is a pretty strong word too. Appreciate is probably a more apt description. That’s about enough full disclosure for me.
The brief interaction I had today put an extra bounce in my step, and reinforces my love of Spain, and Almuñécar in particular.
I was running some errands near the center of town. As I was walking by a store front, a voice called down to me, “¿Qué hora es?” I looked up, and there was a little old lady looking at passersby, and generally just people watching. She asked me again, and it took me a split second to figure out that yes, she was actually talking to me, and she was asking me what the time was.
I called up to her, “Son las diez y veinte.” She couldn’t hear me and did the international sign of “I can’t hear you” by cupping her hand to her ear. I spoke louder and clearer and told her (in Spanish) that it’s 10:20.
With that, she thanked me and blew me a kiss! Yep, that made my day. So I suppose that I should change the title to “There’s An Old Lady in Almuñécar that Appreciates Me“. I think I’ll stick with the original.
