El Examen es Muy Bien

I wrote my Spanish mid-term last night. The students finished at staggered times, so the teacher marked our exams as we completed them.

I aced it.

I did study my little heart out for this test.

When I took my French classes, I wouldn't study as hard and I'd come home with 97 or 98 (have I mentioned I'm a bit of an over-achiever?). The Husband would always ask me: "What happened to the other 2%? You speak French, for pete's sake!" Which is probably why the teacher marked me harder.

So needless to say, I felt compelled to call The Husband after class to brag.

Me: "Hola!"

TH: "So? How'd you do?"

Me: "100"

TH: in his best Spanish accent "Das berry goot Chica! See ... choo hab Espanish blood in choo."

Me: giggling"I don't think so."

TH: "Oh chez. Choo hab Espanish blood in choo. Choo can tell by chore hass. Choo have de Heneefer Lopez hass. Ees muy beuno."

Crazy MO...I see where you get your online name! That was hilarious!!! I didn't know you speak French?? French was my college major...although so long ago...I have forgotten most of what I learned...as you know if you don't use it, you loose it.

Great Post..

That's some sort of spanish, french, german hybrid, right? :)

Angie: Here to help. It's all about the laughter.

Dan: I speak Ontario French Canadian French. Anyone will tell you that's not French. It's more Frenglish. However, I can get by as a tourist in France, so that's not too bad.

septembermom: Gracias!

3carnations: I see you've met The Husband.
