Example text

Whoever says different is a liar. Pirucha danced rock and roll and Rosita danced Spanish dances, which she does well even though she is a blonde. We ate club sandwiches already a bit dry, pink meringues that tasted like perfume, the little tiny ones, and cake and candies. The drinks were delicious. Pituco mixed them, shook them, and served them like a real waiter in a restaurant. Everybody gave me a little of this, a little of that, and that way I was able to come up with about three glassfuls altogether, at the very least.

How funny! We went up in the elevator to the fifth floor. I was in a foul mood, because I didn’t want to go out: my dress was dirty and I had planned to spend the afternoon washing and ironing my bedspread. We rang the bell: the door opened and we, Casilda and I, went into the house, with the package. Casilda is a dressmaker. We live in Burzaco and our trips into the capital make her ill, especially when we have to go to the northern part of the city, which is so out of the way. Casilda asked the servant for a glass of water right away to take the aspirin she had in her purse.

Pituco mixed them, shook them, and served them like a real waiter in a restaurant. Everybody gave me a little of this, a little of that, and that way I was able to come up with about three glassfuls altogether, at the very least. ” “No, not even a sip,” I answered, because I was ashamed. ” And he made me drink something that burned my throat all the way down. ” It’s not right to do these things to a child, don’t you think, Miss? People were very jolly. My mother, who hardly ever talks, was chat­ tering away with some woman or another, and Joaquina who is shy danced by herself, singing a Mexican song she did not know by heart.
