"A guy called Louie who works at a tire shop near where I live."
"Do you like him?"
"Love. I love him and he loves me."
"Love is sacred to me. I don't kid about it."
"Then you are no longer interested in Claudio?"
"If he were drowning, I'd throw him a sack of papas."
"We didn't even meet him."
"He would have been like all men. Except Louie."
"Why is Louie an exception?"
"Because we're in love."
"You just met him."
"That's what really makes it special. I know him so little that it has to be love."
Ramona was forced to ponder Glenda's reasoning but could find no reason behind her reasoning.
Ramona continued to search Chicanos For Love website for love. Glenda dated Louie until she found out he was also dating several other females who also considered him in love with them and they in love with him.
Claudio was never heard from again. "A passing dream," Ramona dotted in her journal, which she kept in the open for anyone to read.
Ramona decided to re-position herself in life. No more salivating over men. She would play it cool and refrain from showing too much interest. Let them chase her until the right one catches her then wrestles her to the ground under the shade of a majestic fruit tree.
