Cast of Characters
Him: socially inept, cheerful but fairly clueless, very Italian last name. Son of landlord to houseful of Mexican immigrants of uncertain status who do farmwork for them.
Me: anti-social, fairly often outraged, Irish temper. Bound in on three sides of property by this new landed gentry. Also currently cold, wet, and hungry.
Him: "I saw you out shoveling before."
Him: "Don't you have Mexicans to do that for you?"
Me: "No, we use Eye-talians for that."
