At A Family Gathering
She's a little more comfortable and outspoken in this setting, but she probably won't beat your ass in front of abuela (because sometimes abuela will protect you from mami's wrath). "I TOLD YOU TO RELAX! RELAX!!!" And she might even hit you on the shoulder a few times.
This when she's equipped with her chancla, the belt, and god knows what else. You better run.
