What Is Pablo?
I keep my grocery list on my phone.
I noticed a puzzling item on the list.
What is Pablo?
No, it’s not a poblano chili.
I already have a bunch of chilis in the fridge.
I’m sure that this was an autocorrect.
But what did I mean?
I can’t have meant to buy Pablo, the ubiquitous character in my 7th grade Spanish textbook.
You know, the guy who’s mother always has a cold.
And who always wants to know what time it is.
And who is always hungry, thirsty, or needs directions.
No, it can’t be that.
Well then what is Pablo?
The minute I get home from the store is when I’ll probably figure it out.
“But I put it on the list,” someone will complain, angry that I didn’t get that thing.
Or maybe it will be me that will be doing the complaining.
When I reach for the Pablo and we don’t have any, that’s how I’ll figure out what I meant to write on my grocery list.
Everyone has a story to tell.
