My sister-in-law is going to San Diego next week and I am rather jealous. If only I was not eight months pregnant I would be going with her. My six year old niece told me excitedly what she was going to do in San Diego, collect sea shells. I then informed her that I am from San Diego. I was born there and lived there when I was a kid. Her response was my favorite.
"You are Mexican!"
"Uh, no actually San Diego is still apart of America. But it is really close to Mexico."
If I was Mexican I am pretty sure I would be the palest Mexican in the world.
