You’d be surprised how often I get asked this question!
Like they say in Puerto Rico, “¡Esa es la pregunta de los 64 mil chavitos!” The literal translation is “That is the 64 thousand pennies question.” The statement literally means that the person has asked a somewhat complicated question at least in my case. 🙂
I can answer by telling them I’m from (town where we live), but I know my answer will not suffice their curiosity. So I’m happy to oblige, and educate them!
However, being questioned where I’m from or what am I so frequently brings me to think of our beautifully mixed son. He’s just 5 yrs. ago, and I’m teaching him to embrace his biracial, and multicultural identity with pride. So when the question of “los 64 mil chavitos” arises he’ll be able to answer with pride!
