THE - MEXICAN

THE MEXICAN I went over to my friends house last night. I love it when he smiles with a grin, He holds the door open, and welcomes me in. With a style of a gentleman. "MI CASA ES SU CASA" ~~~~~~(he says) At first I did not know what he meant. I don't fully speak Mexican. I never got the hint, when he called me his brown 'DULCE' medicine. Funny how I thought he was a *WhiteSican* ~~(lol) Always offering me 'TORTILLAS' with rice and beans. OH! Now I now exactly what he means. On Thursdays when we play 'CHALUPA'. ~~~~~(aka*bingo) He'll remind me not to forget- my 'GUACAMOLE JALAPEÑO' dip. We'll talk and laugh and, oops there he goes again with the gas. Blames it on all them beans he eats. Than he'll talk me into dancing "LA CUCARACHA," ~~~(with him) Dancing and jumping to the beat, he always steps on my feet. MMM I love it when he makes "ENCHILADAS!" ~~~(all for me) We sit and watch Spanish 'NOVELLAS' on TV. I never complain, thinking he knew what they where saying' It's not the right time to tell him I'm a silly Texan, with a poor excuse when it comes to a 'MEXICAN!' I'll keep it to my self and enjoy the cute things he does for me. I love the words he speaks before I leave. Like a gentleman he opens the door. He hugs me and calls me his "AMOR!' He waits for me, as I get in to my car. Than he'll yell~ 'ASTA LUGO MI AMIGA!' I'll smile and turn back and say, ~"ASTA LA VISTA BABE!"~ by;p.d.
