Laughing Out Loud in Public

Two passages in Luis Urrea's "Into the Beautiful North" have made me laugh out loud in public.
She liked to think of Matt's mouth as having American lips--labios Americans. It could be a power ballad by Mana'.

The girlfriends had all seen "Los Hermanos Blues" at the Pedro Infante a few months earlier.
"We're on a mission from God," Nayeli intoned.

There's many more that got close to the out loud threshold. I haven't even finished this book but I say go get it!

No, actually. Because I don't have any cloth napkins. Hence why I registered for them on our alternative registry. :o)
