Siete de Mayo

7 little Mexicans in Georgia on the 7th of May.

Have you seen my picture to the right? It is probably obvious even in the black and white that I am really white. REALLY white. A week at the beach and all the self tanner I waste money on makes not a bit of difference. I'm not even lucky enough to get orange. I am the kind of white that if I was a lot younger and my Hubby was a prince and I had four more short people to take care of I would totally be Snow White. We have bad apples in the kitchen too. When we see Snow White in the Disney parade, she is always tan compared to me. What does this have to do with Mexicans? Nothing. Except that I might be the exact opposite. Funny that my Dad looked a lot like a Mexican and very dark skinned. Yes, he was my real father so don't let your mind go wandering. (Add to my to-do list: look for picture of Daddy to post.)

These little Mexicans are in the Big Guy's Kindergarten class and I would love to have any of them as my seven dwarfs. Why is it not 'dwarves'. [disclaimer: I know it should technically be "little people" now, but I am staying true to Disney at this time, so no emails to straighten me out, please.]

I am leading up to something in another post. I'm not just posting random pictures of children dressed in Mexican attire, although that would not be unlike me at all. I don't have a lot of time right now so sorry to be such a tease. If it makes you feel better, it will not be an interesting post at all. A total wast of time for both of us, I'm sure.

What I have already learned today: After tres anos of Spanish I had to Google Siete to make sure I was spelling it correctly.

Oh my gosh you are hilarious! Down right funny!! And it didn't really matter what you were talking about 'cuz anything you put little Mexicans and Snow White in is bound to make your audience giggle. Have you considered stand up? Siete or See'yet'a, you don't even have to know how to spell doing stand up.

This post made me laugh! I always thought that Snow White was the MOST beautiful of all the Disney characters AND I've always been envious of white, creamy skin. Just thought I'd let you know...

Funny thing. My Dad looks Mexican, too. Seriously, he could pass as Mexican and has been mistaken as one many times. Unfortunately, I wasn't blessed with dark skin or fair skin, such as yourself, but I have the in-between, greenish-hued skin. I DO tan, but that's only like 3 months out of the year in the state of Minnesota. The rest of the year I'm left looking palish green.

Tiffany's comment was ALMOST as funny as your whole post!

Those photos are to die for. Gorgeous. I want that background color in my house somewhere. Heck, I want YOU in my house somewhere. Like in my kitchen, where I usually am, so you can talk to me and keep me entertained.

Oh, and thanks for the warning on the other post. I will admit that I did not read it. Sorry, but vomit on my computer would just not be worth it.

Oh, and you should google spelling "waste" too. Sorry. I am sure that was actually just a typo on your part and that you actually know how to spell it. Since it's English. And, a word to the wise, this post gets funnier each time you read it. I can't read it again tonight or my snorting and chortling will wake my husband. Who, in an ironically Disney fashion, is sawing logs like Sleeping Beauty.
