I am learning spanish right now!

I'm sitting in my office and 5 guys are here to clean the showroom floor. By the end of the morning, I should know enough Spanish to be able to communicate floor cleaning desires effectively.

Hardly. But you will be able to talk smack about yourself, 'cause you know that's what they are doing!

Or Gringo...

That's about all Spanish is good for INSIDE the USA. Dictating orders, filling out welfare papers and being a social worker...

People learn it because they think its easy and useful...useful if you work in a low paying social service office. German, Japanese, Chinese and perhaps French are the best languages to learn if you want to make money with them.

I studied two years of french, and about all I can do is read my wife's fancy shampoo bottles

Spanish is now part of most school's regular curriculum. My son has had Spanish class since kindergarten. When I was growing up, it was an elective in high school.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

Maybe there's a hillbilly part of Mexico that spells it "hablar".
Until I was twelve, I thought "yellar" was a primary collor.
