SOLD.

"Lately, I want to tell her, my stepfather looks at me the same way he looks at the cucumbers I’m growing in front of our hut. He flicks the ash from his cigarette and squints, "You had better get a good price for them," he says."

"A son will always be a son, they say. But a girl is like a goat. Good as long as she gives you milk and butter. But not worth crying over when it’s time to make a stew."

"On the mountain we mark time by women’s work and women’s woes."

EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW

Before today, Ama says, you could run as free as a leaf in the wind.

Now, she says, you must carry yourself with modesty, bow your head in the presence of men, and cover yourself with your shawl.

Never look a man in the eye.
Never allow yourself to be alone with a man who is not family.
And never look at growing pumpkins or cucumbers when you are bleeding.
Otherwise they will rot.

Once you are married, she says, you must eat your meal only after your husband has had his fill. Then you may have what remains.

If he burps at the end of the meal, it is a sign that you have pleased him.

If he turns to you in the night, you must give yourself to him, in the hopes that you will bear him a son.

If you have a son, feed him at your breast until he is four.

If you have a daughter, feed her at your breast for just a season, so that your blood will start again and you can try one more to bear a son.

If your husband asks you to wash his feet, you must do as he says, then put a bit of the water in your mouth.

I as Ama why. “Why,” I say, “must women suffer so?”

"This has always been our fate,’ she says.
"Simply to endure," she says,"is to triumph."

My Dole Whip

I’m allergic to pineapple. Not deathly allergic but if I eat it I start to get itchy and my face turns red and blotchy. I don’t mind it because I don’t really like pineapple in the first place but then I was introduced to Dole Whip. Dole Whip is this pineapple soft serve found at Disneyland near the Tiki Room and it is delicious. I can have half a Dole Whip and not have any major reactions but one time I did eat a whole one and had to suffer the consequences of itchy red face for the remainder of the day, totes worth it though. I’ve only ever been in one relationship and it was a 4 year ordeal and left me heartbroken and bitter. All could have been avoided had I listened to my friends from the beginning (and throughout the years) to break up with him because our relationship was toxic, alas I was blinded by first love. So friends, if I date someone and you all see something that I don’t see just use the word “Dole Whip”. Something that I want however am allergic to, and sure maybe nothing bad will happen from consuming a little pineapple, or maybe I’ll have a horrible reaction and die.
