1. The old man that gets mad when your ball goes in his yard.

2. El Cucuy.

4. Cosquillas.

A Coaquillas attack can occur at any moment but usually happens when you least expect it. You stopped breathing after seven seconds of the torture and wondered if you would ever breath again.

5. El guau guau.

Most guau guaus are nice and fun and love to play. But the guau guau you saw on your walk to the store with your mom? Forget it. As soon as you saw that one red car you asked your mom if you could cross the street for no particular reason.

6. Getting lost in the store.

All you wanted to do was look at a piñata for 1.3 seconds and your mom decided to walk away. You panicked the entire time you looked for her, and though it was a short time you knew you never wished that sinking feeling on anybody. Not even your worse enemies.

7. El Diablo.

All the stories you heard as a kid when you were with your abuelos still haunt you to this day. One day, you imagined life if El Cucuy and El Diablo met and formed a friendship. That night, you watched Looney Tunes throughout the night.

8. Spilling food on the floor.

Dropping a limón meant you had to endure your dad's angry stare. Dropping an entire plate meant lockup.

9. Your dad.

Most of your decisions were made by asking if your dad would get mad at this or not. On the times you took a risk, you immediately regretted it. He loved you in a te-voy-a-chingar type of way.

10. El comal.

You tried to pull a tortilla off the comal with the finesse of your mom and dad but learned quickly that you aren't born with that ability. So, for a few years in just stayed clear of it in order to avoid any more burns.

11. Any chile that hits the kitchen table.

You thought you were funny once and took a bite out of one. 34 minutes of llorando later and they gave you the chills every time you saw one.
