“Here, read this. It’s what I was talking about at the conference in Austin,” I said as I handed the latest copy of Puro Pedo Magazine to my cousin, Vero.
“Oh, I’ve seen this online, when you send it out on MySpace,” she said and then started flipping through the magazine. I’d caught her in a rare moment when she didn’t have the baby in her hands.
I pointed out some things to her as she read. “I wrote that article. And I’m in that picture, see.”
“Who is this?” Vero asked. She was on the page with Rio’s Valentine’s Day cards. “Is that your dad?”
“No,” I giggled. “That’s César Chávez, the guy who started the farm workers union.”
“Oh. Wow. Your dad looks like him,” she mused.
“Yeah, he gets that a lot,” I said.
