You want to know why that land isn’t cleared yet? It’s because the stupid ojetes we had working the job ran away and won’t come back -- and even being paid two hundred pesos a day! And now that they’ve been talking about what happened, you can bet there’s no way any of the locals are going to work for us at any price. We’ll have to bring in labor from a different state, where they have different superstitions. Because, you know, you’re not going to find one of those fools that isn’t superstitious somehow. But we can go north, maybe to Chihuahua or Durango, and find some men who worry about desert demons instead of tree demons.
