Meaning of Palomitas

Hi everyone! I recently received a correspondence from a friend who speaks Spanish/English, but the letter he sent used a word and I'm not sure if I found the correct definitions for the word or if he misused it. He says "I am responding to your "palomitas" dated the 19th of this month". - Any help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated. The only definition I could find was "popcorn".

I'm assuming your writer wrote the sentence in English, just as you quote it. Since he put palomitas in scare quotes, we know he is using the term in an unusual way. Without knowing the whole context it's hard to guess the intended meaning, but he may be making some kind of joke: "I am responding to your "popcorn"..." Palomita can also mean "darling" in some places, but that doesn't fit here, either.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
