Anticipating our first delivery of firewood (a ton of red eucalyptus), I took a couple of the rejas to our local metal guy Daniel. A few spot welds later, I can stack firewood (leña) without fear of blocking the only electrical outlet (tres en linea) in the carport – vast improvement over the rickety wooden frame I used previously.
Whenever the firewood gets around to arriving, that is.
In Spanish, esperar means to wait, and to expect, and also to hope. To a northern North American, that seems hopelessly imprecise. To someone in Uruguay who ordered firewood two days ago for delivery today, its level of precision seems about right.
LATER THAT SAME DAY 😉
