A question for the ages

It was a little early for dinner, but we were at a mall with many eateries around and basically nothing in our fridge. This is still the first day in Lima. I was feeling a bit better about the whole living in a foreign country. I was also being comforted by the mall – actually, my distinct thought was that I wanted to live at that mall. As I went to ask The Archaeologist if he was hungry, I stopped. I should say this in Spanish – I can figure it out – this is what I need to be doing. So I gave my husband a pleased, what-do-you-think-of-this look and asked: You got a man?

Tienes hombre? Tienes hambre? So close.
