This humorous tale is about an old man who cannot seem to listen to his wife. As she leaves for a barbecue, she reminds him to bring "el puerco"-the pig that will be roasted as a main dish. He later wonders why she wants him to bring "la puerta"-the door-but dares not question her. Delightfully illustrated, this story shows that sometimes mistakes turn out for the best.
