Maria Escobar

August 10, 2019

I remember my dad telling me stories of his youth and one in particular that I like is when as a kid his mom would send him to buy fruit to the store. Instead he and his little friends would go to an orchard and climb the trees to get it so the money mom gave him would last the family for other things . The oriental man would come out chasing them but they didn't know what he was saying.
