About the name : Don Manolo.
First and foremost.
Mafalda was written by Quino, as you can know, the comic is quite old, but nevertheless very up to date.
Mafalda presented a reality mixed with childhood fantasies of a long gone time for Argentina and South America in general.
Manolito was my favorite character. Dumb as he can be, he's a disaster
in everything at school except for math, due to his work at his dad's
grocery store. Well known as:
- Almacén Don Manolo. -
In Mexico many, many grocery store was tendered by spanish shopkeepers
, mexicans named as "gachupines" a wrong term but effective.
To honor Mafalda and those owners, I named Don Manolo to my point of sale.
