On La Malinche, La Llorona, La Virgen: My Mother's Ghost Stories

@Mariajoseh thank you for writing this! I found it very interesting because some aspects of your experience are so different from mine, even if I'm Mexican and was raised catholic, but "la madre, la virgen, y la puta"? Oh, yes. Every Mexican woman has to deal with that.

On La Malinche, La Llorona, La Virgen: My Mother's Ghost Stories

@up cubed I'm Mexican and very white, I've been called güerita all my life. I just had never heard o read the term weta with a "t", but maybe it's more a chicano thing.

On La Malinche, La Llorona, La Virgen: My Mother's Ghost Stories

This was great, The Hairpin's really good today!

But pleaseee, the typo in the title me está matando. Should be "Malinche" and, as someone said on Facebook, I think it should be "wera" and not "weta".

On What I’ve Learned About the Weddings I Remembered

Going to at least 2 weddings this year. One is my cousin's and already filled with family drama, but I think the event itself will be fun. The other is one of my best friend's, in my hometown. I'm taking my boyfriend and it will be my 1st wedding with a date. I'm happy for her and looking forward to the wedding but don't wanna be a bridesmaid (she hasn't asked, but I'm pretty sure she will), how do I say no?

On “What do Angela Merkel, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Sheryl Sandberg and Beyonce have in common?”

@rebecca the brave Interesting! I've always thought I have a textbook first-born personality, but my friends are mostly the youngest in their families. That's so weird! Also, I have dated 3 people: One oldest, one youngest and currently a middle child.
But yes, I am definitely more driven, responsible, and qualified than my 3 sisters.
