A little story

AdRi and her father went out to dinner together last night. When they're together, they speak to each other in spanish. Last night, they talked a lot about several items and projects, in detail and probably in great length. Afterwards, her father left and a very nice older woman seated nearby approached AdRi. She asked where she was from, and AdRi had to think for a moment. She told the woman that her father was from Mexico, and the woman asked what language they were speaking. AdRi replied spanish, and the woman said, "Oh really? I thought you were speaking yiddish!"

I'm tempted to make matzo ball soup for dinner tonight, but I think that might be pushing it.

Well, at least she had an inquiring mind...and THEY DO WANT TO KNOW. But, please, yiddish? I'd have had to laugh, giggle and make some snarky comment. Yikes....they're everywhere!

Since when does Spanish sound like Yiddish?

Wow, Spanish must have changed a lot since I was in high school.

Oh look at that, my eyes just rolled right out of my head!

Sure, sure, I could see that. Yiddish/Spanish, sure.

I used to love to listen to my roommate talk long-distance on the phone to her mom and dad -- mom was Puerto Rican, dad was from Spain. (And also my college Spanish teacher! That's how she and I met.) She'd be all "fast talk fast talk, Mami, DUH! fast talk, YEAH, WHATEVER!" I loved the mish-mash.

Obviously that poor woman doesn't have an ear for languages! Oy!
