La Popular

Dustin calls from Texas to tell me, "I wish you were here..."

I am thinking this is a sweet sentiment, until he finishes the thought.

"...If you were here, I wouldn't have eaten a pound of tamales by myself."

A different hypothetical: if La Popular Tamale House was not, in fact, so popular, it might not sell its tamales by the dozen and Texas newbies might not assume that the minimum order corresponds to an appropriate serving for one person. Because, really, if I was there, we would just have tried to split two pounds between the both of us and then sagged together on the couch with the same repentance I hear now over the phone.
