When You’re the Only One In Your Group Who Can’t Stand the Spice
…Because everyone assumes you like it spicy since you’re Latino.
You tell your friends you don’t like chile and they act like…
Like the f*cking world is ending.
They take such offense.
WTF? It’s not personal.
Then they question your authenticity… But you’re Mexican.
You’re literally the worst Mexican ever.
Ha! I’m not even Mexican.
How do you not like chile?!
And they give you the sad eyes to convince you it’s sooooo good ?.
You’re such a pansy… Or a personal fave: grow some.
Because eating that is going to make me stronger?
Then there are others who tell you it’s not spicy, “You’ll be fine.”
Literally, my mouth is on ?.
When they know the only only Mexican candy you can handle is Mazapán.
Those aren’t real friends.
Even the waiter at a restaurant chuckles because you ask for the mild sauce.
And you’re trying to hold back the tears.
Even mom gangs up on you because she says, ni pareces mi hijo.
She knows you can’t stand the heat.
The worst is when your hero betrays you: el elotero.
He asks si lo quieres con el chile que pico o con el que no pica ?. Crushed.
But there’s no need to respond because you know tomorrow everyone will be regretting their choices.
One word, gastritis ?.
