Quiosquito

“—Me contó un pajarito que  la señora atiende en un quiosco en la quinta. ¡Sandié, sandié , quién lo conociera a Quiosquito!” It is the diminutive form of kiosk, a kind of small store where cigarettes and candies are sold. The character Savastano would like that dissolute Mrs. Kruif did him a special “service” in that kiosk. (Mentioned in Bustos Domecq story.)
