tale of two animalitos

Scene: Boxes piled high, filled with every imaginable kind of game, toy, candy, coloring book and sundry knick knacks. Girls hovering around picking, choosing, sniffing, prying, fingering and sorting.

El Ratito/The Little Rat: On the hunt for chocolate, spies a blue square package. Always a good sign. Lunges and resurfaces with booty.
In true rat form, sniffs package suspiciously, discovering not chocolate but SOAP. Throws back in disgust and continues rummaging.

El Puerquito/The Little Piglet: On the hunt for...anything edible, spies a blue square package. Always a good sign. Reads on the wrapping "An Alaskan Tradition for 50 years"

"Whatever THAT means", it thinks dissmissively, ripping off blue packaging and stuffing suspected chocolate between it's hungry teeth.

"SPIT!! Waa...it's SOAP!!"

El Ratito smiles to itself, and feels cunning.

Heh.. cute. Except "el ratito" means "the little moment". A little rat would be "la ratita".
I'm such a nazi. Sorry...
