An Anecdote from Barcelona and a Random Thought about Spanish

So I was hanging out at a friend's flat earlier tonight and he told me about meeting a Finnish girl he fancied yesterday.  He'd been in a bit of a rut with women lately and was excited at the new possibility. He called her. She called back and they agreed to meet at outside a restaurant at a certain time tomorrow. There was no call me after work, or I'll send you a message just to confirm, or let's touch base tomorrow. A time and a date was set and that was the end of communication until they saw each other. It was like back in the day when we were kids and we'd all meet up at that certain spot to get into god knows what. And I thought, How refreshing.

On a completely unrelated note, I find it interesting that the verb for to know and to taste is the same in Spanish (saber) given how important food is here. It's like - you don't really know something until you taste it.
