The farmer and the cook label was designed by my friend Katy Overstreet; but I had the idea to include a dicho on the inside of the label...a prize, if you will, inside of every box. Now a dicho is an idiom or saying of which my Colombian mother has many. Whenever I see her she has remembered a few more gems for me. Here are some now:
"Mas popular que un chupon in el orphanato"
More popular than a pacifier in an orphanage
"Un boca cerada, no entra mosca"
A closed mouth doesn't let in flys
"El ambition, rompe el saco"
Ambition breaks the bag
"Mata un hormiga y un million viene al funeral"
Kill an ant and a million come to the funeral
