Some truths

I am loud (!!!!!).

I won’t hesitate to yell at someone in the street if I have to;

and my have to doesn’t need to be an emergency,

it may be a simple Hey, I’m here.


I love dancing,

I love shaking my hips as if worms are controlling me.

I enjoy moving like a possessed creature and sweating like crazy while dancing

(You’re not really dancing if you don’t sweat).


I like güiros,

and I won’t be stopped by the lack of this instrument in my new country.

I can make a güiro out of almost anything;

you’d be surprised about my indispensable skill of improvised güiro making.


I prefer babies over dogs.

I do like dogs (First World dogs are insanely smart and polite, I don’t know why),

but you won’t see me petting random canines in the street.

I will, however, wave and smile at babies and kids at any opportunity.


I don’t care at all about real state

(Simple and clear, nothing more to add).


I love music,

I cannot understand the world without it.


I’m not cool,

I’ve never been, and I doubt this could change.

I like weird music and

I deeply enjoying reading poetry aloud.

The combination

of music and poetry will definitely make me cry.


I like food with flavor,

Boiled vegetables with butter are not a dish.

Luckily my grandma raised me well,

So if you give them to me I will eat them.

(I like vegetables, but boiling them doesn’t make them into a dish,

they simply transform from raw to cooked).


Note: If someone is offended by this post, just think of it as a fictional account of what I sort of think, but not really. (¡Claro que me gustan los chícharos hervidos!)
