I was having lunch with my co-workers in our lunchroom. A new engineer had just come on board, fresh off the plane from Fresno, & while we had picked up a bunch of Bacalao salad & pasteles from The Pastele Shop, he was eating the crappy spaghetti from a nearby plate lunch place. We had asked him if he wanted us to pick up something for him, & he had declined.

During lunch, one of the managers said, “Pasteles are kind of like tamales.”

The new guy said, “But with seaweed in them right?”

I sigh.
