By Beth Beutler
1 "La cucaracha, la cucaracha (La kook-a-racha, la-kook-a-racha)," sang Sancho. "La, de, da, de, da, de, da."
2 "What are you so happy about?" asked Mario as he watched his friend spin and dance.
3 "I've been chosen!"
4 "You've been chosen? Chosen for what?" Mario asked.
5 "The party! I'm going to the party!"
6 "What party?"
7 "Julio's party, silly friend! The big party celebrating when he turns 10."
8 "Oh," replied Mario. "THAT party. How do you know?"
9 "I overheard Mrs. Garcia talking about it. They will, of course, have a Mexican theme. What's a Mexican party without chips and salsa?"
10 "A party in which WE don't get eaten, that's what!" argued Mario. How could Sancho be excited? As a tortilla chip, surely he understands that he would be eaten at the party!
11 "Oh, my." said Sancho. "I hadn't thought of that! I don't want to be an appetizer!"
12 "Then you'd better come up with a way to get out of this party," Mario answered with a smug look on his face.
13 Sancho plopped down dejectedly. "What am I going to do? I don't want to be dipped in salsa and disappear."
