Mario's mom and sister are visiting, so we've been speaking a lot of Spanish. As Mago (Mario's mom) was washing dishes, I heard her say that she found an "aspa" in the blender. I believe that I heard the word for nest, too. I couldn't figure out how wasps had made a nest in the blender. And, oh, was I disgusted!
Mario couldn't understand my reaction, as he told me that his mom had found our missing blender blades in the blender. "Aspa" means blender blades--not wasp (avispa), like I thought I heard.
Whew--no wasps in the blender, and now I can make chunk-free baby food! Oh, the joys of not catching everything!
