I just received this email from my sister this morning and I must say that I agree:

REGULAR FRIENDS vs. PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS

REGULAR FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Are the reason you have food.

REGULAR FRIENDS: Will say “hello.”
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Will give you a big hug and a kiss.

REGULAR FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs..
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Call your parents mami and papi and say
“bendicion” when they see them.

REGULAR FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Cry with you and know why you are crying without
you saying a word.

REGULAR FRIENDS: Will eat at your dinner table and leave.
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Will spend hours there, talking, laughing and
just being together, then they help you clean up.

REGULAR FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it’s yours.

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

REGULAR FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that’s what the crowd is
doing.
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds’ ass that left you.

REGULAR FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, “I’m home”.

REGULAR FRIENDS: Are for awhile.
PUERTO RICAN FRIENDS: Are for life.

Love you sis! ¡Que viva Borinquen!
