The school year was just about to end, and I found out my dream boyfriend, Carlos, was spending the summer as a camp counselor out of town. Heart sick, I moaned and moped for the first week, then it came. My stomach was all churny, my skin was all tingly, and my heart- pounding. A love note, in Spanish, from Carlos. Two years with Hermana Carlota prepared me for words like amor and hermosa.
Yesterday, I had that same, well, similar, excitement as I gazed into my mailbox at the small brown box. My seed order from Johnny’s Selected Seeds arrived ! A couple of hundred bucks worth of tiny dried particles in a brown box.
My new Carlos!
buenos dias y feliz cinco de mayo!
