Just learned my new favorite Spanglish word.
And this time I didn't make it up or learn it from another gringo--it's standard around here! I saw it on a billboard a few days after hearing it.
The other day, I walked past a table where someone was selling cupcakes. They asked me if I wanted a quequito. Of course, my English-driven brain heard "cake-ito".
But no, if you want a cupcake in northern Mexico, a quequito it is.
Yet another joy of living awfully close to the border!
