Had one of those moments.
Went to the appliance store today, where Lee bought all our appliances during his short trip here last July, to look at buying an ice maker. We have so many guests so I thought I'd look into the possibility. Anyway, in talking with the salesman I began describing what I was looking for since I didn't know the word for "ice maker" in Spanish. Twice I described it to him in hopes he'd say the actual name. Twice he just went with it. So, I decided to ask. I just had to admit that I didn't know the word for what I wanted. Certainly not the first time. So, when I asked "what do you call that thing that goes in the freezer and makes ice?" His reply..."ice maker." Apparently, all you have to do is lay on a pretty heavy Spanish accent.
