- This painting depicts what has happened to me and what typically happens during a birthday celebration in many Latin American households.
- "La Mordida", the bite, is when the birthday person has to take a small bite of the cake to start the nights festivities. It's never something to look forward to as there's always a cousin, sibling or friend ready to smash your face into the entirety of the cake. Not very hygienic but that's why there's always a second cake!
