Chef introduces me to The Family.
Originally posted on Everyone Has A Story...:
Chef is from a very, very large Hispanic family. His mother is the eldest child of 13 kids. How incredibly awesome is that?? Basically, her parents gave birth to their own football team, with alternates. I love that…Anyways, Chef’s white father left his family pretty early on in Chef’s life, and left his mom and her very large, close-knit family, to raise their four kids. Sad, but it was what it was.
To introduce me to this large extended family, Chef thought it would be fun to take me to one of his family’s get-togethers. And these people throw a fantastic party. Good food, good locations, and Mariachi‘s for entertainment. And I was really nervous, but excited to be going. When we arrived, the family was really nice to me, especially my new mother-in-law. The only fly in the soup was that they all spoke Spanish to each other. And my Spanish really bites. I can understand some of it if you speak super slowly and only ask me where the bathroom is. Oh, or cuss my mother. I know the bad words…I mean, I did go to school in Los Fresnos for awhile..lol.
