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.
