Two favorite Texas words, plus Libertad

In Caramelo may be found "urracas" (Texas peacocks, or grackles; written material always says that grackles are zanates, but in Texas they're always urracas) and "canicula." There's also evidence of a fondness for Libertad LaMarque on the part of the author, Sandra Cisneros. Her purple house, evidently, is still purple.
