Written and performed by CARLOS GALLEGOS
Alfonsito wakes up in the morning with the urge to buy one or two bread rolls. Yet this seemingly simple task is quite complicated to accomplish. It will take Alfonsito some time to collect all his courage to overcome his fear of leaving the house. And then, once outside, he will have to pretend to be as normal as other people. Eventually, as he hurries along the deserted street, he will have to make an effort to ignore the jokes of his friends and the melancholy of the street sweepers, and most of all, avoid the encounter with that blabbermouth Magalita. Will Alfonsito manage to get his bread rolls at all?
