So after posting my cry for help, I took some of your advice.
I was at the local mercado, shopping for some basic cooking supplies when I found myself in the aisle where they carry the "velitas." (Apparently they call them "veladoras" in Mexico.)
I tried to remember who it was I should pray to and be
lighting the candle for if I’m looking to get married.
Nah, that seems
St. Valentine? Does he even have a candle? Do we really pray to
Oh! I know! San Antonio!
I decided to look for a St. Anthony candle. I was in deep
thought and concentrating really hard . . . and then I found it! Success!!
Armed with my velita, I begin to head to the front counter
to check-out when . . .
There he was. An Adonis. It was almost painful to look at
him. But I also couldn’t look away because he was looking directly at me. It
felt like his eyes were piercing right through me to my soul. My first
conscious thought became a prayer of thanks, “Wow! Gracias, San
Ay Caramba! Now he’s coming towards me! He opens his mouth
to speak . . .
And that’s when I woke up.
