“ I’d let that catch go and cast a new line out in the sea of good men who know how to treat a woman…”
I went to the flea market this weekend with my boyfriend. It was hot! Anyway, we were there for about half an hour and in the lane where I usually buy my cold drinks, I saw a man taking off his shirt. He wasn’t doing it for attention because I could tell he was really sweaty and wearing two shirts. He was only taking off one, but the other stuck to it and it showed his upper body. Naturally, I looked in his direction, but it wasn’t anything serious. I suddenly felt this ugly pinch on my side, and I turned around and slapped the person who pinched me out of reflex. It was my boyfriend! Long story short, he made a scene and we were asked to leave. He argued with me all the way home telling me I shouldn’t have been looking at other guys. No matter how much I tried to tell him it wasn’t a big deal (my boyfriend is way better-looking), he wouldn’t hear it. He ended up breaking up with me after he drove us to my place. Should I try and get him back or move on?
Girl, any hombre who pinches out of anger or jealousy deserves a smack! To me, that is the equivalent of people who leave hickeys to mark their territory… disrespectful. So what if you stared at the sweaty guy who was foolish enough to wear two shirts in hundred degree weather in Texas? (Nombre shut up, that guy esta loco!) Your ex’s jealousy was over a look and he felt possessive enough to pinch you over it. Heck to the N-O! I’d let that catch go and cast a new line out in the sea of good men out there who know how to treat a woman. Mamita, la vista es natural, so next time the “Pulga Stripper” strikes again, you look all you want. It’s still a free country! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
I think my girlfriend is being unfaithful. All of a sudden she is wearing nice clothes, make-up, and fixing her hair. She has always been a t-shirt and exercise pant-wearing woman who simply puts her hair up in a pony-tail or wears a cap. I love her any way she looks, but she’s never made an effort to impress me. It never bothered me until now. I work eight to ten hours a day sometimes, and she works part-time. My friend sent me some pictures of her all dressed up at the store, and it bothers me because she never did that before. Plus, she doesn’t stay like that for me. By the time I get home, she’s back in the same gear. What do you think?
Papito, I can understand your worry, but I have a feeling that you both have become way too comfortable with each other. You shouldn’t take little things like make-up and nice clothing for local shopping trips too seriously. Here’s an example of why. I love being at my casa, wearing my house dress and slippers most of the day. It’s crazy hot and no one here cares about what I wear as long as it makes me happy. BUT… when I get out of the house, I like getting dressed up like a hot tamale. Porque? Because I feel like it. I’m tired of being at home all the time and since restaurants, clubs, and bars are closed, you are darned right that I am gonna dress like a DIVA when I get out! I need this for my self-esteem. What makes her so different? What are you doing to make her feel sexy or pretty? What is she doing for you? I think you both should reevaluate what you have going on and make it better. Communicate and fix this problem before it gets worse. As for wondering why she doesn’t stay dressed that way for you, have you forgotten that this is Texas? I practically have to peel my clothes off after sweating so darn much! Just like stripping off that mask when you get in the car brings relief, changing clothes does the same. Tambien, why in the heck is your amigo taking pictures of her in the first place? That chismoso is only causing problems!
I hate the fact that bars are closed. I miss having beers with friends at the local spots and I think it’s stupid that people can be out in crowds protesting, but bars can’t be open to the small groups that usually go. Does that make any sense?
Yeah, the great debate on “La Rona” continues on with so many confusing facts and fears. Some of these rules are devoid of common sense, pero our current situation has certainly opened my eyes to how easy it is for people to turn on each other. Those who don’t frequent the bar scene will never understand how much fun it is to get away from home and have a few cold ones with amigos. Socializing is good for morale and people have to understand that not everyone has someone to come home to. The bar owners and their patrons become like a second family to each other when you are at a good place. It’s easy for people to say “Why can’t you stay home and drink?” pero I say “To each his own”. My main concern is from the small business standpoint. Whether people like it or not… bar owners are small business owners too. They are trying to survive this pandemic just as any other struggling business, and I find it completely unfair that they aren’t given an opportunity to maintain a clean, socially-distant atmosphere to stay open for business. Nombre! If soap and water can kill this virus, can you imagine what alcohol can do! SASS!
Bueno, today I’m staying away from my stove. Nombre, it’s too hot to be cooking so I’m making sandwiches for my loteria amigas. Hasta la proxima!
In the words of my abuela, “There is only one of ‘you’ in this world. Take care of yourself, honor your family, treasure your life, and be a good person who makes me proud.”
Con mucho love,
