What? You tell me you didn't? Oh come on. January 6th was Kings day, and the holiday celebrated in Mexico with the traditional circle of bread called Rosca de Reyes. Inside the rosca is hidden a baby. AdRi tells me that if you're really poor, the baby is actually a lima bean. Back to the story....a plastic baby is hidden inside of the bread. If you are the person who gets the baby, then you have to throw another party on February 2nd.
Let's just clear it up now. I never get the baby. Last year we were in Austin and picked up the Rosca de Reyes and brought it to JaAmLo's for his birthday. I didn't get the baby. I didn't get the baby the year before either.
But guess who got the baby this year? That right peeps! Lelo!
We always save the babies, and they live on the window sill above the kitchen sink. But what the hell? This year's baby, courtesy of Su Casa in Hillsboro, was a frickin' freak. What kind of baby is this? It's pale white! And it looks more like one of those statues peeing than a baby in a rosca de reyes! Hey, this isn't right. Whatever.
