Carmina: She wasn’t that big.
Bonita: She had such a pretty face.
Alejandra: She was a beautiful person.
Carmina: I don’t know how she talked her husband into it.
Bonita: I heard it cost $10,000.
Alejandra: That money could have gone to her kids’ education.
Carmina: Or daycare. Miguel’s a single dad now. How’s he going to take care of those kids on his own?
Alejandra: It is so not worth it.
Bonita: I considered it once.
Bonita: Just for my nose.
Alejandra: What’s wrong with your nose?
Bonita: I always hated my nose.
Carmina: We all hate something.
Bonita: But not <i>that</i> much… Not to die for.
Alejandra: Why did she risk it? Just so she could wear a bikini again?
Bonita: I heard they’re burying her in it, her new bikini, under her clothes.
Carmina: Oh… It’s just so sad, such a waste…
Alejandra: It didn’t have to happen.
Carmina: It should never have happened.
Alejandra: She always said there was a thin woman inside her, waiting to break out.
Bonita: She broke out all right.
Carmina: She wanted her before-kids body back.
Alejandra: You can’t ever go back, not really.
Carmina: I think plastic surgery actually <i>hurts</i> self-esteem.
Bonita: They talked her into doing her hips, too, while they were at it. Can you believe it?
Alejandra: I can see doing it for burn victims or someone like that.
Carmina: Yeah, they might actually <i>need</i> it.
Alejandra: But not for regular people… certainly not our poor Esmeralda.
Carmina: Why does society put so much value on looks?
Bonita: Even boys have body image issues nowadays.
Alejandra: I blame it on the media.
Bonita: Who can escape the media?
Carmina: Oh, I just feel so bad for her kids.
Alejandra: I know… those poor kids. A heavy mama is much better than no mama!
Carmina: Why couldn’t she have seen herself and accepted herself as Jesus did?
