word of the day: padrino

The word of the day is padrino:

1. godfather (de bautismo); best man (de boda)
  • padrinos -> godparents (padrino y madrina)
2. second (en duelos, torneos)
3. patron (protector) (

"So the padrino finally decides to visit, she declaims in one of those loud ronca campesina voices."
