What's crazy to me is, the Mexicans all don't want to leave because they don't want to be away from their family. I have offered to support her entire (immediate) family; move to a big house and take them all in.... all they have to do is pack up and come join us... and they just won't do it. They have hundreds of regularly visiting family members down there. It's crazy... being an American I just don't get it. My current family consists of a couple of siblings I hardly talk to. My wife's family, seriously.. and this is just the people she's close to... is over 200. Easily.
She'll show me photos of like a whole mob of family members... "Mida, mi amor... ok this is Juan, this is Popín, this is Rudolfo, this is Araceli, this is Olivia, Miriam, Roberto, Jose, Junior, Lolís, Marisol, Vero, Ricardo, Reuben, Emily, Omar, Pablo, Melani...." and I'll stop her and put my finger over her lips and be like... "It's ok honey, I lost you on the 2nd one.. I'm old and I can't remember..."
Oy vey!!!! Get me an aspirin! And a drink! STAT!
