Lo Que Pica el Gallo

Hablando de lo que pica el gallo…formando un arroz con mango.

Mas atravesado que un Miercoles

Murphy’s law states that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.  I don’t doubt that it was a Cuban who said if something can get in the way, it will get in the way (or something along those lines) and when it does, esta mas atravesado que un Miercoles.

Today’s distractions were definitely not an exception. Amidst a busy day of work and being late for work and classwork, right smack in the middle of my day I had a quiz to take for an online class. Of course, it would interfere with my work day and my productivity momentum, so to say it was “more in the way (or lying across) than a Wednesday”  suit the situation well. More so because it’s a Wednesday.

To get a better idea of what the idiom means, take for example the picture below. It was taken last year while I was directing employees of Dolphin (Landshark/Sun Life) Stadium into a situated parking space. Our parking technique is simple, yet some people just don’t get it and pull stunts like this:

Of course this smart patron could not follow directions, nor could they follow a parking pattern and park next to the white truck ahead. They thought that parking in between two parking lanes was more suitable. Estuvo mas atravesado que un Miercoles.

This guy thought he’d resemble a Wednesday as well:

Leave it to a Miami cop to own not just one lane, but two. To top it off, he was well out into the intersection, passed the light above us. Este tipo was definitely atravesado como un Miercoles.

About Lyanis

I'm always a little skeptical about filling out an "About Me" section. I'm supposed to tell you about who I am, when really, as wordy as I tend to be, no one can really get to know someone from a box confined to a certain number of characters. You see, I'm a bit complicated. I don't like to admit it, partially because I like the simple things in life but truth is, we're all complicated and none of us come with instructions on how to decode one another. So in the mean time, to better understand me for me, I'll give you the basics: I'm a hometown Miami girl born to Cuban parents. I'm the only girl of 4 children still living at home with mom and dad while I work and study in hopes that one day, all this writing pays off and...well... literally pays off. I'm working on getting my Bachelor's degree in English with a minor in Communications. I tried reaching for my roots and focusing in on Spanish, pero que 'va, I like Cuban Spanish and Spanglish way better than the Spanish the teach in college. Both my parents have instilled the importance of family and togetherness in me and my siblings. For that, I'm thankful. Although at times my house resembles una casa de locos, it is that very essence that makes me a little bit more of who I am, and provides me with the material I write about here. I have big dreams for myself as well as for Lo Que Pica El Gallo. This is just the beginning of a long journey and I sure do hope you stick around to see where it takes us.
