My dad is visiting. He’s here to watch his granddaughter go off to school. He’s also watching the birds, watering the plants, cooking, vacuuming and washing my windows…A lot…”Mira que polvo!” I think I fail the Cuban Cleanliness Standards.
So, on the way out the driveway this morning (and, more about school in a coming post), Maria says:
“Mami, I saw abuelito’s pee cup.”
“What? You saw what?”
“His pee cup.”
“In the driveway. Right there.”
“Oh, do you mean his pick-up?”
“Yes, his pee cup.”
Say it fast “peecup” equals “pick-up” in Cubano.
Yes, indeed. My daughter is learning lots of new words from her abuelito.
