A few hours ago I went to my favorite Latin food market to look for some goodies. As I was shopping, I noticed this young, Dominican couple hovering near the baking products and in serious discussion. The girl cautiously approached me and asked if I knew any good cake recipes because they wanted to bake a cake for their nephew's birthday today. I told her how cool it was their nephew's birthday was just two days after mine. Her face lit up and she said: "De veras? Hace dos días? (Really? Just two days ago?)". Well, after that she and her husband offered to buy me a treat. Initially I refused, but they insisted on it. Finally I took a cupcake from the bakery, they paid for it, and then they wished me a happy birthday before leaving.
