It was almost 9 at night when my mother's dream came true. She was in the kitchen watching me eat with amazement. Why on Earth was she looking me that way? There was an awkward moment of silence between us. Oh! That's right, I had eaten my vegetables! It all started a typical refreshing Monterrey day, only 104°F, when I jumped on Facebook.
