Nitpicking.

Grandma Secretary on phone:

We don’t have anyone here right now who speaks Español.

[pause]

Oh, your English is good! You know, if you dropped me in Mexico, all I could say is cerveza.

[pause]

Oh, you’re from El Salvador?

    Cerveza is most of my Spanish. Baño is the rest. One does lead to the other.

    Not to say that Grandma Secretary is anything but a waste of flesh. Just showing off my excellent bilingual skillz.

    I know shes the bane of your existence, but I really, really love your Grandma Secretary stories.

    You should publish them. 😛 And just so you don’t end up sued I’ll let you borrow some of my stories about my hick father-in-law. You know, for DIVERSITY.

    My own personal Grandma Secretary (or she would be a grandma, if she hadn’t single-handedly f’d up her 3 sons) recently got into a show-down with her attorney. She vehemently requested a reassignment. She’s around the corner, yet I hear *every* word. Gawd, it can’t happen soon enough.

    BTW, your link to the chaos in Oaxaca had this headliner on the sidebar – “Brad Pitt is wet and in boxers”. No way I could pass that up. Especially where it said “Enlarge picture”. Hee, hee.

    You can tell I have the alcohol tolerance of a preschooler, I had no idea what cerveza meant. My memories of high school Spanish include Me gusto_______, Me llamo _______, iglesia, and la asignacion– which I’m not entirely sure is correct anyhow.
