Accidental Virgin

Last week I went to the SFMOMA to see their Photography in Mexico exhibit. I went with my friend, who is full Mexican and who can speak Spanish.

I'm half Mexican and I can't speak Spanish.

I said, "I'm going to make a self-portrait of myself as a modern Virgen de Guadalupe."

This has a lot to do with the fact that I have a lingering case of ringworm right now, which is contagious and has prevented me from intimacy for about a month and a half. It will be another month before I'm allowed skin-to-skin contact again.

She said, "What, so you're going to dress up like a chola?"

Uh ... no?
