So, before Valentine's Day my Salvadoran co-worker and I were sitting in my office chit-chatting when she noticed the shamrock. She kinda stared then asked, "What's that?" I told her it was a clover. Again, a brief stare. She shrugged, we sat for a few more moments then she moved to the next office to chit-chat. I walked into the hallway and heard her asking one of the Chinano women when was St Patrick's Day.
The next day, my Salvadoran coworker's new adornment immediately caught my eyes. It was a combination Gold & Silver Cresent Moon necklace. I complimented her, she said Thank You. We both smiled knowingly.
Conversely, one day while joking with one of my newly converted Christian coworkers about the too many ways to prepare chickens, she started stumbling over her words... "Chicken, kitchen, chitchen, Wiccan!" Brief stare. Awkward moment... My comeback: "Wiccan chicken? I bet that's delicious, all them herbs & spices!" Lol. She gave a fake laugh, then excused herself to tend to her business.
Moral of the Story: 'It Takes One 2 Know One."
