When Turtles Fly

I was chatting the other day with an acquaintance of Cuban origin.

He was a bit upset because a friend of mine had been unreasonably "fierce" with him on account of a minor mistake he had made.

I explained that my friend is a charming and delightful person, but that from time to time she sees life in black and white terms, with no gray areas,

I said "think of your Cuban Grandmother".

He grinned and said "if she says that Turtles can fly, then Turtles can fly!"

Then he gave me the thumbs up.  I think that I had ameliorated his distress.
