So strange to me: the whole time I lived in Texas (Fairfield, midway
betwixt DFW and Houston) I met exactly one Latina. Before we left SoCal,
I spoke Spanish pretty much fluently 'cause my dad worked in Tijuana.
But after seven years in Tejas, I'd forgotten nearly all of it 'cause I
never used it. There I was, thinkin' I'd get to speak Spanish in Texas.
Not if Fairfield you don't!
