Like A Yo-Yo / Como Un Yo-Yo

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

SAN GERALDO WAS stumped.

"Is there a musician whose last name is 'YuhYOmuh'?" he asked.

"What?"

"Well, I don't have the first letter filled in yet, but the clue is 'Musician whose first name is a toy,' and the name ends with 'O-Y-O-M-A."

"YoYo Ma?"

And, yes, we both burst out laughing. YoYo Ma, too.

SAN GERALDO ESTABA perplejo. 

"¿Hay algún músico cuyo apellido es 'YuhYOmuh'? preguntó.

"¿Qué?"

"No tengo la primera letra todavía, pero la pista es 'Músico cuyo primer nombre es un juguete' y el nombre termina con 'O-Y-O-M-A'."

"YoYo Ma?"

Y, sí, nos dos rompimos a reir. YoYo Ma, también.

      Oh, I hate doing crossword puzzles with anyone. I do MINE alone. Jerry does his quietly until he has a question. Then he asks for contributions. He prints his out. He at first would print one out for me, as well, but he got pissed if (WHEN) i filled mine in too quickly (more quickly than he did his), so he starting printing out one from a previous day for me.

  3. Did you see the episode of Louis Gates's show "Finding Your Roots" featuring Yoyo Ma? It was terrific (as they all were). Goes into how he got his name, among many other things. Watch it if you get a chance.

      I've only read about Finding Your Roots and have never watched an episode. This sounds interesting.

      I should be ashamed of myself. Itzhak didn't even cross my mind and I could play with mine forever!
