Lately, Lilia has been unwinding after school by watching a Mexican soap opera. I didn’t even know that we had access to Mexican soap operas until Lilia tuned in. And I’m not altogether sure that it’s Mexican. Today there was a scene at the airport in Miami. Everyone speaks Spanish, and I’ve heard of Mexican soap operas, so I just assume that’s what it is. Anyhow, I think Lilia likes it because the action on screen is so melodramatic. She doesn’t understand the conversations, and neither do I, but she can get the gist from the crying and kissing and grand gestures.
