You Know You're Latina When....
You can fight two struggles everyday and make it look easy.
You can make a child happy on Christmas Day even if he didn`t get a damn thing.
You are admired and fantasized about by men of other races and know that when you do cross over it's done out of sincerity, not a political move.
You watch other women pay plastic surgeons tons of money for physical features you were already born with.
You curse a man out, make him feel like crap then, make love to him the same night and make him feel like a king.
You can wear the hell out of spandex
You can raise a Doctor, a World Class Athlete and an A+ student in an enviroment deemed by society as dysfunctional, broken, underprivileged and disenfranchised.
You can heat a whole house in the winter without any help from the gas company.
You can go from the boardroom to the block and "keep it real" in both places.
You put a LATINO and his non-LATINA date on pins and needles just by walking into a room.
You wear big hoop earrings, 3 1/2 inch heels, and a miniskirt to work - and make it look professional.
You can live below poverty level and still set fashion trends.
You look 21 even though you're 31.
You're proud to be latina - and you pass these jokes on to all your latina friends!
