Hairpin, you're killing it these days! This was wonderful.
@Mariajoseh thank you for writing this! I found it very interesting because some aspects of your experience are so different from mine, even if I'm Mexican and was raised catholic, but "la madre, la virgen, y la puta"? Oh, yes. Every Mexican woman has to deal with that.
@up cubed I'm Mexican and very white, I've been called güerita all my life. I just had never heard o read the term weta with a "t", but maybe it's more a chicano thing.
This was great, The Hairpin's really good today!
But pleaseee, the typo in the title me está matando. Should be "Malinche" and, as someone said on Facebook, I think it should be "wera" and not "weta".
YES. THIS. THE END.
I needed this too. So great and so well written and so true. Thank you.
This was so funny, now I miss my cat AND I want to take her to a psychic
This is the best thing that ever bested, i hope she reads it!
Going to at least 2 weddings this year. One is my cousin's and already filled with family drama, but I think the event itself will be fun. The other is one of my best friend's, in my hometown. I'm taking my boyfriend and it will be my 1st wedding with a date. I'm happy for her and looking forward to the wedding but don't wanna be a bridesmaid (she hasn't asked, but I'm pretty sure she will), how do I say no?

@rebecca the brave Interesting! I've always thought I have a textbook first-born personality, but my friends are mostly the youngest in their families. That's so weird! Also, I have dated 3 people: One oldest, one youngest and currently a middle child.
But yes, I am definitely more driven, responsible, and qualified than my 3 sisters.
