MY EMBARRASSING MOMENT ON A HOTEL LUGGAGE RACK
By: Carla Cotropia
First I have to ask myself why I am even writing about this embarrassing experience. But I am, so here goes. When I was in my twenties, I wanted to take my sister on a trip to Mexico. My sister, Kimla, is 12 years younger and my Mother was terrified that I would lead my sister astray. I usually stayed in a little Mexican hotel on the water in Puerto Vallarta. My Mother decided that if I was going to risk my sister's life, I could at least take her to a nice hotel.
