Little Allie can’t pronounce her Rs yet. Madre Berta is trying to teach her how to say Terrrre.
No, says Madre Berta: Terrrrre.
Update on Tere: One monthly subscription of $55 will now go towards Tere Tele’s salary of $8000 pesos a month. I have absolutely no doubt that her service will be supported. It’s a pretty great feeling, actually, when you know someone who is so exactly suited for the important work they do, that everyone feels confident that she will be able to continue with full support backing her.
CODA: Madre Berta hates having her picture taken. She seldom allows it. But when I told her it was for Tere, she said “shoot at your own risk and hope your camera doesn’t break.” Au contraire, Madre Berta, thou art more lovely and more temperate than a summer’s day.
