YOU KNOW YOU’RE BRAZILIAN WHEN…
You didn’t know anything about bills until you came to the US.
You still wear Speedos to the beach or pool!
You like Guarana better than Coke.
If someone tells you to be at a certain place at 1:00 pm, you don’t show up until 2:30 or 3:00 p.m.
You know who Xuxa and Pele are.
Your entire family goes to grandma’s house on Sundays for a big family get together….even when you guys see each other everyday.
Your American friends call you for dinner at 5:00 pm sharp and you’re still recovering from the lunch you had at 2:00 pm…
You can name at least 30 novelas and 10000 actors/actresses.
BBQ (a.k.a. Churrasco) means steak, sausage, chicken wings, pork, rice, farofa, molho and beer.
You are the loudest person in the room.
You got a Brazilian flag hanging from your car’s rearview mirror (or a bumper sticker flag).
You travel to Brazil and instead of taking a suitcase with all your stuff, you take presents for the entire family, the dog, the neighbor, not to mention the old/used clothes that you take just in case someone needs it.
You live in Florida, New York, New Jersey, or Massachusetts... and a few in Chicago . You leave your house spotless when you have people coming over. An ideal woman is a woman with small breasts and a big butt. You can dance. Your jokes are always about Portuguese people. You take soccer too seriously. You go to a birthday party, and you can't leave until you take that piece of cake home. You know what Capoeira is. You know the difference between Samba and Pagode. You've studied the history of almost every country. You eat rice and beans (or you would love to) 7 days a week. Your breakfast consists of milk and coffee, bread with butter, and maybe a piece of papaya. Everyone thinks you're everything but Brazilian (when we speak Portuguese in public, many Americans think we're speaking French - others think we're speaking Spanish). You know who Os Trapalhoes, Turma da Monica, Zico, Caetano Veloso, Tom Jobim, Elis Regina, Ronaldinho, Jo Soares, Cazuza, Gilberto Gil, Silvio Santos, Roberto Carlos, Ayrton Senna, and Carmem Miranda are. You go to a bar and ask for salgadinhos with guarana. You are so used to corruption that nothing surprises you anymore. You know how to play dominoes and cards. You don't care about race or color. And once you come to the US, you realize what racism means. You have a sense of fashion. You wear slippers... a lot! You know how to play volleyball and handball. You are always taking pictures everywhere you go. You know what it's like to buy liquor without an ID. You know how to party, and if the party doesn't last until after 5am...its not a party! Any holiday...being it official or not, is an excuse to stay home from work and take a week vacation. You know what feijoada and pavê are. Your favorite drink is Caipirinha. You dress up to go to the supermarket. You spend an entire day at the beach. You are too friendly. You're proud to be Brazilian! ALE FERRARI, orgulho de você, beijo no coração! Obrigado por enviar ;)
