Happy cuatro de julio!

As things wind down for the Independence Day weekend, I share an actual conversation I had with a Central Market checker earlier today:

Checker: Hi, did you find everything okay?

Me: Actually, no. You’re completely out of Dos Equis lager.

Checker: Oh really? I apologize for that. But, we are coming up on the July 4th weekend, afterall. There’s nothing more American than Dos Equis!

There wasn’t the slightest hint of irony in his tone. There are several ways various people would have taken that, both positive and negative. Personally, I was highly amused, and I liked it.

    I thought there was nothing more American than XXX?

    Well, when I was in El Paso recently, I asked the clerk at the Shell station if they had any Mexican beer. Without hesitation, he said, “You mean like Budweiser?” He was Mexican-American.
