I talk a lot about my paternal grandfather. I think mostly because the loss is still so raw for me still. I had another awesome grandfather, he was awesome in a different way from the recently departed one but still awesome. Over a Mama Kat’s one of the writing prompts is to write something that your grandfather used to say to you.
Abuelo J would say to me when it looked like I was scheming to get something,:”Ese huevo quiere sal”(That egg wants salt). As I stood there contemplating my request he would read my intentions. Initially I had no idea what he meant and eventually I just wondered how he could read me so well.
As Abuelo C would say: “El diablo sabe más por viejo que por ser el diablo“(The devil knows more from being old than for being the devil).
