el capitulo final...
Yeap..el capitulo final de "La Madrastra" was yesterday. How do i know? because my family is mexican!!!!!...i know this sounds pretty bad but that is totally not the way i mean it. hellooo? i'm mexican myself. so anyway, i went to celebrate Labor Day...the americans that we are, cuando nos conviene, hehehehee...with my family on the southside. We celebrated it Mexican style of course...arrachera, salsa rojo y verde, tortillas en la parrilla, quezadillas con flor de calabaza, arroz y para que no se nos olvide que estamos en los united states aventamos unos hotdogs y hamburgers tambein. After eating all this yummy food i went upstairs to watch some spanish videos...reason number two on why i love to visit my parents...they have that dish cable thingy and so i get to see spanish videos and not only the spanish mtv videos, they get these other two channels. anyway, i went upstairs layed on the couch, big mistake after eating so much because i fell asleep. when i woke up my sister had changed the channel to telemundo. she was watching a novela...not sure which one but there was an older woman telling a younger man that she was pregnant with his child. apparently the older woman was lying because right before the commercial she says to herself "este me salio mas gallito de lo que pense!" toda dramatica. Yeah, i'm not much of a novela person, ni en ingles ni en espanol. I never got what the big deal was, to me is has been the same thing over and over again, so it seems. a poor girl inheriting some money, or someobody is pregnant but lies about who the father is or some old geezard getting married to a younger lady...yeah i never got them. so i decided to get up from the couch to go to my parents room to watch something else. my little niece was watching another novela in there!!! "i've told you before you are waaay to young to watch these things!!!" hmm, se le metio por un oido y se le salio por el otro. i walk out frustrated...not because i couldn't watch t.v. but because i truelly believe that she is too young to watch these kind of novelas. frustrated i go to another room...yeah every room in my parents house has a t.v... but to my surprise the t.v. was gone!!!ha?!?what?!que?!?como?!?! oh well, i thought to myself, i'll see what the familia is doing outside after all i do need some fresh air after taking a nap. what i'm about to describe has been the funniest thing i have ever experienced with my family this summer....i said this summer because there have been other things this year but not enough time to write about all of them. so as i'm going downstairs, i hear a lady speaking...toda muy dramatica...i begin wondering "what the hell?!?!?" i walk out to the back yard and it's like a theatre back there!!!! the missing t.v. was outside!!!...a todo volumen. my family was sitting in front of it watching victoria rufo being nostalgic. "quitate!!! no nos dejas ver!!!" everybody screamed out at me. at that point i said "well if you can't beat them join them!!" so i sat down and watched as "la madrastra" was about to be murdered!!! well as you may imagined, she wasn't murdered and she was reunited with her children after being in jail for 20 years....i got all of that in only the first minutes of sitting down. i kept getting yelled it because i kept making little comments "hah!!! uuueeeeeh!! no porfavor!!! piensa en tu hijo!!!" and when they were thanking La Virgen de Guadalupe i kept pretending that i was crying along con la madrastra, los hijos, la hija, los vecinos, el padre...did i forget somebody? oh yeah el perro y el gato...hehehehhehe. if it sounds like i'm making fun of all this i'm not...ok maybe i am but in a good way, seriously. i have my,como se dice? misas tambien. I NEVER EVER miss "Smallville" even if it's a repeat. AND seriously, Smallville is waaay more unrealistic and dramatic than las novelas!!...at least there aren't any flying people en las novelas...well unless somebody throws them out the window para "vengar la muerta de mi padre!!!" . Anyway, i just thought the whole incident was funny. Which to be honest, considering what my family has been going through, was very much needed.
