    Me gusta el título, Derek. And I’m eager to read.

    Courtesy of Carlos Fuentes, from Aura: «Y ya no piensas, porque existen cosas más fuertes que la imaginación: la costumbre que te obliga a levantare, buscar un baño anexo a esa recámara, no encontrarlo, salir restregándote los párpados, subir al segundo piso saboreando la acidez pastosa de la lengua, entrar a tu recámara acariciándote las mejillas de cerdas revueltas, dejar correr las llaves de la tina e introducirte en el aqua tibia, dejarte ir, no pensar más.»

    Am I just stating the obvious when I say it looks like Baby Jesus is peeing in that man’s mouth?

    Nevermind, Kelsey told me it’s breast milk. I see it now.

    I said “título.”

    I saw it instantly. I’m kind of jaded, I think.

    Incidentally: the same thing happened to me, Derek, as I began learning Italian. It got more and more mixed up with what Spanish I knew.
