Hello and welcome!! You’re listening to Song Stories, Quiet Stories. This is podcast episode 12, My Trujillo, the third bonus episode of my one-woman original musical play, Tales of Tila, which premiered at the Electric Theater, St. George, Utah in October, 2018. I am your host, Carolyn Murset.
Grandma Tila is sitting right next to me. I invited her to visit us one more time. If you’ll remember, she wasn’t here for the last episode when, I told you some of my own Christmas stories, including a couple with my other Grandma, and let you listen to some of my songs and arrangements. I asked Grandma Tila to think of some nice things to say about my Grandpa Trujillo, because his birthday is very soon, on the first day of the year. Grandma, tell them what you’ve told me.
Hello! This is Tila Miera Trujillo. You may not have expected to hear from me again. I didn’t know if I’d return with more stories after I last talked to you. Well, here I am, back for a little while. First of all, let me tell you a little more about the man I married many, many years ago: as people say, it seems like it was only yesterday.
For a Trujillo, his hair was much lighter than you’d expect. He had a lot more of it in his early years, than he does now, so he covers his baldness with the Stetson, and tells people he wears it so he won’t get sunburned. Whether that’s true or not, it’s a good excuse.
It was nice to visit with you once again. If la Carolina doesn’t beat the bushes and get on the phone, to get some more stories out of you family members, she’s going to start making up things about all of us. Are you curious to hear what she’d say about you?
Here now are some things for you to write about….Have you ever saved a life? Were you as frightened as I was?
Are you a noisy eater? Be honest, now. Do you eat more candy and sweets than you should? Why? I knew it.
I have no idea what la Carolina is going to talk about next time. Come back anyway and listen and be surprised.
I have to go now and bake a birthday cake for my viejo. A big enough one to hold 126 candles. Hasta Luego. Happy New Year!
