Mi Querida Mama…

Mi Querida Mama,
Remember what you told me about Tio Johnny? I don’t know why, but the other day I had a dream about him. He was holding hands with Uncle Steven. I know Steven wasn’t my real uncle, but he was so nice to me, and used to shower me with lots of gifts after his travels.
Mama I felt so sad for Tio Johnny. I mean he was always alone except for when Uncle Steven would come around. They would go out and not return until I was asleep. You know, I don’t think it was such a big deal. After all he didn’t hurt anyone. Who cares if he fancied other men. I will always love my Tio. I don’t care what anybody says. Don’t you agree Mama? Besides, would you love me any less if one day I told you I liked women? You would probably light a dozen candles to the saints, but I know you wouldn’t love me any less. Well Mama until next time.
Your loving daughter.
