Yesterday my mom was helping me run some errands. We were at the mall and she wanted to stop at a kiosk and buy a gift for a friend. While there, one of the store owners turned to ask his wife a question about one of the products that my mom was inquiring about, in broken Spanish though.
After a moment or two of listening to their conversation I turned to the woman and started asking her questions about the product in Spanish. I figured I could ask her directly for the specifications my mom was looking for.
I jumped as I heard a man behind me say, “Whoa! How in the world does a blonde like you know how to speak Spanish like that?” I chuckled and we all chatted for a minute in Spanish.
Admittedly, I love moments like this. I have a passion for the language and love when I can surprise people that a blonde like me, can speak Spanish like that. It absolutely made my day, and actually made my mom proud!
