My husband turns back and says to me, “Do you think the baby is dressed as Toto?”
I said, “Oh my G-d. Don’t ever say that dog’s name to a Dominican person. Ever.”
He asks, “Why not?”
Of course, at the same time, another Dominican woman from synagogue passes by and I relate the story to her. She can’t stop laughing.
“But what does it mean?” my husband insists as he watches the Dominican woman laughing hysterically as she walks into synagogue.
“It’s slang! It means vagina.”
