Student has gone on summer vacation to meet Mexico City. He is staying in an Air B and B.
Student to Professor Zero, by e-mail: There is a towel on the toaster and on the coffeemaker in this apartment. Does this mean I am not to use them? I was hoping to have toast and coffee on the patio.
Professor Zero: The towels are to keep off dust and look pretty. It is a Latin American kitchen thing. There will be towels on everything and the sugar bowl will be in the refrigerator to keep off ants. You may use the toaster and the coffeemaker.
