Family of Little feet. Sam Fox

I do not like feet. So the beginning of this chapter made me a little nauseous. Especial when she describes grandpa's feet and how he stuffs them into his socks. But I think this chapter is more about how the shoes they acquire make them feel. These girls are still very young, but the shoes make them feel much older and a little dangerous.
The language that stood out to me the most was, "His feet were fat and doughy like thick tamales, and these he powdered and stuffed into white socks and brown leather shoes"(Cisneros 39). "Mr. Benny at the corner grocery puts down his important cigar"(Cisneros 40-41).
I picked these two sentences because, I got a visual of the feet, and I feel like I know Mr. Benny and his important cigar.


  1. I am not a big fan when it comes to other people's feet, but I agree with the meaning. A new or different pair of shoes can make you feel good.

  2. those two quotes were very nice! I could totally visualize those in my head too
