Upon arriving in Maz 3 yrs ago, it was decided that ‘we’ needed a couch. Not just any kind of couch, oh no, it had to be a large, Lazyboy couch that ‘we’ could spread out on, and after much searching we did find the one and only available in Maz at the time...a cloth, three seater with a Lazyboy on both ends...
Leaning over the couch I explain...“It’s a couch. It’s too big and hard to move...and it’s not supposed to be attached to you!”
And so the search went on for months...old stores...new shops, they were all scoured and then we found it! A brown leather loveseat.
The lovely salesperson told us the price, and even wrote it out since confusion happens when numbers are given to us in Spanish.
‘What??? It’s called negotiations!’ he explained to me as he walked around the item in question...touching it...running his hand lovingly over the back...and then asking me... ‘is it leather?’
“What? Do I look like the manufacturer...ask her,” as I point to the smiling sales girl and wander over to something of interest across the isle.
Immediately I hear rapid fire Spanish between Hub and the girl...ok mainly it’s the girl, but Hubs listening to it, so I saunter over just in time to hear the word... ‘Moo’.
“Well noooo......but moo?” as I double over laughing...shaking my head...noticing people starting to stare.
Needless to say he was not impressed with my help but...
I’m happy to say, the new Moo couch was delivered to our home...on time, early the next day!
Just another day in the life of 2 Canadians,
living it and loving it in Mazatlan...our home in Paradise.
