When we were kids mom frequently would say to us "ok kids, for the next hour we are only going to speak in spanish". This was her attempt to improve our conversational skills in her first language. We would roll our eyes and play along for the first 5 minutes. Dottie is the only one who has become fluent. The rest of us can scrape by if need be. But since it is mothers day, in honor of Angie, sometime today, in your best spanish accent, please tell your mom feliz día de las madres!
P.S. Hey mom, Chris and I are going to speak nothing but spanish tonight from midnight to 1am. Also, I am taking good care of your vase and the Iris from your house in Arkansas are having a really good year.
