Latino Heritage on Less Than $50
So it's 6:00 on Friday and I realize I am the Grand Marshall of the Latino Heritage Parade in Pasadena the next morning -- and yikes!
I don't have a single thing to wear!
My father was from Mexico and my Spanish is conversational, but my closet is full of Talbot's.
I beeline it down to Olvera Street and for $29 -- voila! A Oaxacan blouse, sash and fake flower and I am Senorita Zavala.
The car I'm riding is, by the way, is a 1973 French something-or-other that has been in enough movies for a SAG card.
What kind of Grand Marshall would I be if I didn't throw candy to the kids. Add $20 for that and the total comes to $49. I also got $20 in cash but I realized later I forgot to get it from the cashier. Damn. Have you ever done that? I won't add that in.
The funny part was when adults actually would yell, "Hey -- over here! Over here!"
I don't know if anyone actually knew who I was, but what the heck. Tuve un gran tiempo! And what a bargain.
Don't be afraid to talk to your children. This is the perfect time to talk about the beliefs you hold to be good and to encourage your children to be brave in the face of adversity.
