Ti’ho Tales and other Lawsonisms

Beryl Gorbman

I just noticed that the paragraph I wrote recently on choice pieces from other people’s websites, was missing the last entry, one I really enjoyed. It disappeared into internet hyperspace the way things sometimes do. So I will expand on it.

William Lawson, is a long-time resident of Merida, a business owner, and raconteur. He knows the Peninsula like the back of his hand. Recently, he has started a serialized novel online that is incredibly funny. It pokes fun at us foreign immigrants by writing humorously in the first person, some adventures of his heroines, Pat and Betty, as they struggle to triumph over this unfamiliar culture. It is nothing short of hilarious. The first installment, The Trouble with The Muchacha, is masterful.

Lawson also writes a truly excellent restaurant blog, and maintains several other sites.

He has published a book, a dictionary of local colloquilisms which illustrate the nature of local society, is priceless. I read it when it was still online but now you can buy the book. It’s essential for people trying to learn local Spanish or at least understand it.

    What can I say? I totally agree with you! But it sounds so much nicer when you say it. (no need to publish this note!)
