In my next life I might just have to be a language teacher…

Why because the comedy of it all would add years to my life!  Tonight in looking for a Spanish teacher to tutor me en casa (in my home), I phoned Boo’s vet here.  Both are Alexandra’s… so it was an honest mistake.  But as I was trying to explain to Boo’s vet in my horrible Spanish that I would love to have her come to my house and teach me Spanish, and she, a bit confused, asked me in Spanish how Boo’s eyes were.  I thought it a bit odd that she knew about Boo… and then knew that he had eye issues!   Well 15 minutes later, it was crystal clear to me who she was…

Ok.. and let’s talk misuse of words… like my conversation in the park with another dog lover about how proud I was of myself for cooking in the rain!  Cocinar is to cook in Spanish… Conducir is to drive.  And my friend Michelle had  real doozey in class this week that resulted in the instructor writing in big letters P O R N  XXX on the dry erase board.  Apparently she was talking about eating juevos (eggs)… and however she said it… well, it was XXX-rated…  It’s funny.. as we try and navigate our Spanglish… we slaughter words, create words, put o’s on the end of words … and with Troy Hitch’s instruction, we talk quietly and seriously to appear that we actually are saying something worthwhile….

And on that note… if I’ve posted it here before.. sorry.. but it’s worth another 5 minutes of laughter… click here.
