Eh girls Great spot for peoplewatching. is delecta But th awful noatise is makin me hungrgy for Bugles! Next thing I knew, 2 of the dad elks were facing each other and pawing at the muddy ground. Then they bugled, dipped their heads down, and ran full-speed—right at each other! Their antlers crashed together, and then it was like an epic stick fight, only with big stick bouquets tied to the tops of their heads. “Whoa,” I said to Jack. “Qué chido,” Jack said to me. And we fist-bumped over the top of Abuelo’s little raisiny noggin.

Good ol' Jack called me after school today to say that she DID make them and there were tons of extras and I should come have one. ) When I walked into Jack’s mom-house, it smelled like spicy warmness and sounded like a happy, noisy restaurant—all chatter and laughter and clinking glasses and forks. I followed Jack to the kitchen, where every square inch of the counter was covered with Lopez family delicacies.
