Your Spanish Totally Sox

, , , | Friendly | September 27, 2018

(When my old roommate first moves to Mexico, he is worried because he doesn’t speak Spanish.)

Mexican Coworker: “You’ll be fine. Spell ‘socks.’”

Roommate: “S-O-C-K-S.”

Mexican Coworker: “See? You just said, ‘That which is, is,’ in Spanish; ‘Eso sí, que es.’ You’ll do fine.”

(A year later, I move in.)

Me: “I’m worried. I speak very little Spanish.”

Roommate: “Don’t worry; you’ll pick it up. Here. Spell ‘socks.’”

Me: “S-O-X.”

Roommate: “Then again, maybe you never will.”

(In my defense, it was an exciting baseball season that year.)
