The importance of being Baldomero


I have some family visitting at the moment.
Gina makes cakes.
The story here is that someone ordered a cake for a birthday party.
The name of the boy: Baldomero.
"For godsake! Who names their son with such a name? It doesn't almost fit on the cake!"
We laughed and laughed...

Tengo familia de visita por aquí.
Gina hace pasteles.
La historia es que alguien le encargó un pastel para el cumpleaños de un niño.
El nombre del niño: Baldomero.
"¿Pero a quién se le ocurre ponerle a un niño ese nombre? ¡Casi no entra en la tarta!"
Nos reimos mucho.


(Dedicado a Aran, una extraordinaria repostera, para que tome nota de la importancia del nombre... Con cariño...)

Today's music:
Mary Onnettes, Scarlett Johansson

Jajajaja
Algún abuelo?
Conozco a un Evaristo q insiste en que su hijo se llame igual q él, y pone como excusa que son ya muchas generaciones. Después de eso entendimos pq las novias le duraban tan poco.

Jaja, mi mejor amiga le puso al niño Salustiano, she went to a beautiful place and someone said -Salustiano is not here and she went crazzy with the name.

Hice lo mismo q en mis post, empiezo a escribir en un idioma y sigo en otro. Espero que solo sea cansancio, me banco las arrugas pero volverme gaga antes de los 40, no, señor!!!

Esti, que me meo de la risa... te acuerdas de aquella serie que echaban en la 2 cuando eramos pequenos que se llamaba "Don baldomero y su gente?". genial!

Nata said...

Cuánto más largo es el nombre, más grande es el pastel. ¡Baldomero es un niño con suerte! :)

That is a big name, perhaps everyone calls him mero instead? Seeing all these delicious pies and cakes is making me very hungry indeed.

My coffee is very lonely now without a cake. :)

Oh that's hilarious! What a name! It has quite a swashbuckling sound to it though. I imagine a little boy with a fierce black Dali mustache and penchant for drama!
