9 Times Bilingual People Just Have To Use Spanish

Univision

No matter what language you speak most of the time, there are moments when only Spanish makes sense. I mean, I don’t make the rules, I just abide by them whenever I stub my toe or see a cute puppy. Here, let me show you what I mean:

1. The tinier the animal, the more Spanish you need.

Look at the little puppy tan lindo y bonito lo voy a comer enterito como un merenguito tan rico iiiii… See? Can’t even write about puppies in English, smh.

2. Babies can only understand Spanish. Sorry.

Because, honestly, tell me which sounds better: “Wow. Look at that chubby baby.” or “Mira ese bebitititito gordititititito”? Exactly. SQUISH!

3. Yelling out in pain is just not the same in English.

How else am I supposed to adequately express the DEPTH and BREADTH of my pain without a “CARAJO” or “ME CAGO EN LA LECHE”? *stubs toe in Spanish*

4. And anger just doesn’t have the same “oomph” in English.

For one, insults in Spanish are just ever so much more… descriptive. (I’ll refrain from going into detail because I don’t know your mothers.)

5. “Chisme” is simply not the same as “gossip.”

Gossip is sharing information about someone else. Chisme is an art.

6. Showing off in front of monolingual friends? Time for Spanish.

Oh, me? Just here hablando en dos idiomas como si fuera nada.

7. Flirting in English? Lol good luck.

There’s a world of difference between “I like you” and “te quiero.” (And yes, saying, “Hola, soy Oscar Isaac” counts as flirting.)

8. And reprimanding small children? Gotta be in Spanish.

English just never sounds forceful and terrifying enough. Maybe that’s why it was always my mom’s language of choice to get me to behave as a kid.

9. And, of course, when your parents go into their “solamente en español” moods.

These Fans Couldn’t Believe Who Their Pop-Star Lyft Driver Was

OMG! How do we get a ride from Demi Lovato?!

While in Denver, Colo., for a concert, Demi Lovato teamed up with Lyft to surprise some of her fans with a car ride courtesy of the Texas-born singer. Not only is this a super adorable video, Lovato, who tells her riders she is Samantha, also shows off her acting chops by acting like just your normal, boring Lyft driver with a dream. During one ride, she shares her wish of becoming a singer and just how totally committed she is to making that dream come true.

“I’ve actually been traveling the country with my ex-boyfriend’s brother ’cause he sings, too,” Lovato told one rider. “We really want to get our names out there at open mic nights and, like, whatever we can do.”

And, of course, Lovato had just a little shade for Selena Gomez — according to Gomez fans, that is.

It seems at the end that she might be holding back a laugh. At least that is what Gomez fans seem to think.

Seriously, the Selenators were not having it.

Though some diehard Lovatics totally played along.

This one fan’s reaction would literally be all of us.

She even had to take her sunglasses off to make sure she was really with Lovato. #Adorable
