Ms. Sanchez: Look, manita, Alfredo often comes back from work well stressed out.
Ms. Delgado: My old man was like that too.
Ms. Sanchez: But very stressed and nervous. He cannot sit down, he smokes and goes from one place to another, sometimes shouting at me and sometimes he gets violent at times. For the nerves, for the stress of work and for not bringing wool.
Ms. Delgado: Well, you have to help him calm down. I tell you, Roberto was like that, too.
Ms. Sanchez: What happened to the doctor, or what?
Mrs. Delgado: No, little lady, doctors! … With pure passion fruit tea, you calm down.
Ms. Sanchez: Really? How do I do it?
Mrs. Delgado: Look, when your old man arrives from work, you already have his little boy ready. You do it with a few leaves or flowers and a little honey. Sometimes it takes a little time to work. In the meantime you could massage the neck and shoulders to help your nervous system relax.
Ms. Sanchez: Ah, well. I’ll try it today. Thank you, Berta.
Ms. Delgado: Good luck, Tare.
