we prefer “sana”

I had hoped to have Alice baptized at a mass that was held in a cherry orchard last night.

It didn’t work out, but we went to the orchard anyway, just to say hello to a couple of the families I know. All David understood were the polite looks of surprise when I said “cuatro meses,” and the words, again and again, “grande” and “grandota.”

Oh, Alice.
