The House On Mango Street Chapter 20 "Chanclas"
What about the shoes?
I opened up the door and she's there with bags and bix boxes, new clothes, socks, and a new dress but mama didn't have the shoes.
I forgot. Too late now.
Mama dances, laughs, dances. All of a sudden, Mama is sick. I fan her hot face with a paper plate.
Everybody laughing at me because I have new clothes and the same old saddle shoes I wear to school. My feet scuffed and round, and the heels all crocked and that look dumb, so I just sit.
Then Uncle Nacho is pulling and pulling my arm and it doesn't matter how the new dress Mama bought it.
Will you dance with me?
Uncle spins me, and my skinny arms bend the way he taught me.
