I started this two weeks ago. And as promised, we will occasionally continue to bounce back to it as the weeks pass.
(this one is gonna hurt)
I once had a whirlwind romance with a girl who is a Mexican national. At least I presume she still is.
She is also a veterinarian, like myself. We met in Las Vegas at a continuing education conference. She wanted to migrate to the US, but had family issues in Mexico which….well, never mind. And I had family issues in the US which….well, never mind.
But I tried to get her into the US on a sponsorship with the clinic I was with at the time. It didn’t work out.
The hard truth is that I unintentionally screwed her over.
Shit, now I’m crying. That sucks.
We need comic relief….
Sorry, I thought that was funny. I’m a terrible person.
If you’ve read In Search of a Goddess, or Goddess II…? The character of Leticia is based upon a real life human type lady person. The whirlwind romance to which I referred above, of course.
She is a wonderful human being. Beautiful, both inside and out. A true angel among humans if ever there was one. Sincerely.
I won’t give you her real name nor her location, for obvious reasons. But she deserved better from me than she got. At the time she and I crossed paths I had my own life issues going on, as I already implied. And so did she. But if I’m being honest, I really let her down. I didn’t mean to, but I did.
I wish I had been in a place in my life to have been able to give her what she deserved. And she deserved the best. She didn’t get it from me, I’m sad to say.
I miss her.
So in her honour, this week we’re doing Sexy Mexican Girls.
Buckle up Buttercup.

When I Lived And Worked In Arizona
One of my employees was Mexican, and also an “illegal” as the phrasing goes. Though I prefer “undocumented worker”. But she paid taxes. She helped the community. She was a good human being. She tried to help everyone she knew and cared about. She was a cute little woman, in her 60s, and as gay as the day is long. But always happy and optimistic about life.
I had to pay her under the table, of course. But she still paid taxes via her partner, who was a US citizen by then.
And for me it was worth it also because she made the best damned tamales I’ve ever tasted. She brought them to me at the clinic every Friday.
Holy shit those things were good.
She was a good person. She used to call me “Dr. Guapo”. If you know your Spanish then you know how much of a compliment that is.
I loved that woman. She helped me with my Spanish, most of which I’ve admittedly since forgotten.
I found out recently she has passed away.
Descansa en paz, Berta. Te amo mi hermana.
