11. Don't even think about getting close to the grill when they're grilling carne asada.

12. They don't believe in taking a six-pack to a party.

14. They're not into showing much emotion...

15. ... Until a Chente song comes on.

Then the tears begin to flow.

16. They will NOT let go of their mustaches...

... and if they did shave it off, they mourned for days.


20. They gave you a little taste of beer when you were a kid.

23. They still believe this is the #1 hangover cure.

25. Their wallets were made for more than just cash.

27. They've sacrificed a lot so you wouldn't have to...

And that's why you love and appreciate your dad for everything they've done.
