Maria, who works in my office, is from Puerto Rico. Today, she literally ran into my office saying that her husband had had a heart attack and the ambulance was taking him to the hospital, but before she left she wanted to give me the list she’d made of the things I should do while in Puerto Rico. In case you’re wondering, it’s kind of surreal to have a conversation with someone about tropical vacations when their husband is on the way to the ER.
But I do love this list. Because it includes instructions like “go to the casinos” and drink pina coladas “with rum” and an entire section labeled “Junk Food.” Maria really gets me.
