March 18/365 Foreign Relations

Mary and I attracted small foreign men. We were tall Irish girls with broad shoulders and hips. “They know we can plow the fields…without the mule,” said Mary. One night, on the inbound Blue Line, two men sidled up. “Here, you have,” one said, holding out a cassette of Guatemalan disco music. We left them disappointed.
