Clueless / Fuera De Onda


"What is '3D White brand'?" San Geraldo asked as he peered down at his crossword puzzle.

"Crest?" I asked in return.

"Crest?" he repeated.

He looked perplexed. "I have everything filled in around it, but there must be something wrong because I've got the word 'oralb'"

"Oralb?" I laughed, "like in Oral-B?"


"¿Qué es 'Marca 3D White'?" preguntó San Geraldo mientras miraba la crucigrama.

"¿Crest?" le pregunté.

"¿Crest?" el repitió.

Parecía perplejo. "Tengo todo a su alrededor, pero debe haber algo mal porque tengo la palabra 'oralb'"

"¿Oralb?" me reí, "como en Oral-B?"




SAN GERALDO SHOULD HAVE ACCEPTED HELP FROM THE WHITE SPOTTED ROSE BEETLE THAT STOPPED BY.
SAN GERALDO DEBE HABER ACEPTADO LA AYUDA DEL ESCARABAJO DEL SUDARIO QUE SE HA DEJADO.

  3. I haven't had breakfast yet--Carlos is making pancakes--and now, seeing that bug, I may not be hungry.

    Who am I kidding? I said 'pancakes' didn't I?

  6. Come to think of it, Oral-B is a rather odd brand name.
