Friends vs. Latin Friends

I didn't write this, but I certainly have experienced it. And my life is so much richer for it!


FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
LATIN FRIENDS: Are the reason you have food.

FRIENDS: Will say "hello."
LATIN FRIENDS: Will give you a big hug and a kiss.

FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs.
LATIN FRIENDS: Call your parents mom and dad.

FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
LATIN FRIENDS: Cry with you.

FRIENDS: Will eat at your dinner table and leave.
LATIN FRIENDS: Will spend hours there, talking,laughing and just being together.

FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
LATIN FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours.

FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.
LATIN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
LATIN FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds' ass that left you.

FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
LATIN FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, "I'm home!"

FRIENDS: Are for a while.
LATIN FRIENDS: Are for life.
