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.
