El Chico and his donuts part 2


This kid walks in with a box of not uno but DOS dozen donuts ( all kinds of flavors). “What do you think you’re doing bringing those in this house?” “Mama, we have to make room for the paczkis.” “Not my problema!” “But we haaaaad to take all the leftover donuts off the shelves to make room for the 10,000 paczkis for paczki day.” WHO keeps making up these holidays? “Nope, take them out. Wait, take them to our neighbors the T’s.” They have 5 kids under the age of 12 and I think they all have skinny legs (summer was a LONG time ago). They could definitely use some donuts. “Super idea mama, I’ll go right now.” “And por favor take that chocolate chip coffee cake too!” Shoo! Whoa that was a close call. El chico gets back “Ma, all 5 kids came running to the door, when they saw me through the window, Mrs. T was so thankful.” “That was very nice of you to take those over, those kids need some sugar.” I’m sure mom will be texting me any minute about it. Well two hours later, ” Hey tell your chico gracias for bringing over the goods. The kids are so excited about having them for breakfast tomorrow.” Me – “so glad the kiddos like them, el chico is such a nice kid always thinking of others.” What I really mean to say is muchas gracias for taking those disgustingly delicious delights out of my casa, and you can have anything else he feels he haaaaas to bring home.
