Hello, mi gente! It’s Amy again.
I’m having issues. I need help.
The other day, I was talking with my Mom and I was messing with her a bit when out-of-the-blue and for the first time in my life she exclaimed, "San Apapusio, baja!"
Umm . . . what?? who??
Obviously, she was frustrated and asking for a particular Saint to come down . . . I understand that part, but most Saints are famous for something and that’s why you call on them.
So, what is San Apapusio famous for?
Before admitting to her that I didn’t know what she was talking about, I did what any modern-day Cubana would do. I asked Mr. Google and guess what? HE DOESN’T KNOW!!!!
El Señor Google left me hanging. So I went to the next best source, Abuela. But, you won’t believe this, she said, "It’s just something we say when someone is being difficult and we’re frustrated. I don’t know why. Ask Mr. Google."
Great. This Mr. Google guy has only been here a couple days and already he’s letting me down.
Not ready to admit defeat, I called my one Cuban friend who has only been here a couple years. He started laughing at me and said he had no idea who it was.
WHO IS THIS SAN APAPUSIO?!?!?
(you get extra points if you can link him to Kevin Bacon)
