“you want a friend, she says. okay, I’ll be your friend. But only till next tuesday. That’s when we move away. got to. Then as if she forgot I had just moved in, she says the neighborhood is getting bad.”
I chose to relate to cathy because i feel that i can be that type of friend. I can be talking to someone the i'll say something that i didn't mean to say. It's not something i'm proud of, but it just happens. I really do try to not do it much, but it does happen every once and a while.
I really do think cathy is a god person and a good friend to esperanza, I mean she did become her friend even though she was only going to know her for a week. She just said something and didn't realize that esperanza could have took offense from. It was a common mistake that everybody makes.
