Esa tarde Grama Cuca came home de la casa de los neighbors. She sat down en la silla next to la mesa en la cocina. Grampo Caralampio was sitting allí after having made un kite para Canutito out of some string, glue y newspapers viejos. The little boy was outside con su papalote and grampo wasstill sitting aquí amolando his new ax. He had just bought esta hacha and he wanted to sharpen it para hacer make sure que iba a cortar wood really well.

He glanced up y he could see que grama estaba toda outraged. Something must have happened acase la vecina. Grampo ventured una preguntita: “¿Qué pasa, Cuca?” he asked her. “Parece que you are toda upset con algo.”
