The Spanish Class, Part Dos

Tonight's Fun Facts On The Unfolding Aventura

1) Mr. and Mrs. G. only arrived thirty-five minutes early for class.

1) Mr. and Mrs. G. managed to share one book, though in a moment of frustration, Mrs. G. defaced one page with a blue Sharpie.

3) At one point Mr. G. turned to Mrs. G. and said of the teacher, "It's like she's not even speaking English."

4) The teacher asked each student to take a minute and write a sentence describing something another student was wearing and Mr. G. asked Mrs. G, "What color is your brassiere?"

5) When they were leaving, Mrs. G. told the teacher, "Adios." Mr. G. followed up with "Buenas Nachos!" Mrs. G. told him in the car if he ever said "Buenas Nachos" again, heads were going to roll. He snorted.

In case you hadn't noticed, this is marriage.

Until next week, despedida.

This needs to be an ongoing feature. There is comedy gold to be mined here!

Hey -- if you ride home I'm the same car? That's rock solid relationship status. Bonus points -- Mr. G was thinking about your undergarments. You two are golden.

Sign me up for one of them Table Top bras, por favor.

You two need to keep taking this class for years. This could be the foundation of a best-selling book!

They were teaching a Spanish class here and they were teaching people to say, step out of the car,hold up your hands, show me your license. Needless to say it was reported and changed.
I want to do something that does not involve a new language. I have enough troubles with this one.

i'm sorry....i just spewed tea.
and by the way, my 11-year old says "Buenos nachos".....Mr. G. needs him for support. they'll get along great.

You need to make reproductions of that "anger expression"--on t-shirts and posters and coffee mugs. It's awesome.
Nachos--I'd have slugged him!

I"m sorry, it's early (well, for me) and did I see FRENCH intermingled with espanol? Did I??!!

Sounds like you two are having a great time with the Spanish. I can order beer - my one accomplishment in the language.

This is hilarious of course but also quite admirable. I have been attempting to learn Italian on my own but have recently been thinking that Spanish makes much more sense since they only speak Italian in Italy and practically everyone in Florida (but me) speaks Spanish. I have a dictionary and workbook on my amazon list but maybe a class is the way to go. Can't wait to hear the continuing adventures!

@Meredith - That sounds like spanish for law enforcement. They teach that class here in addition to the regular continuing edication spanish classes.

My now husband and I took classes and shared books together in college, but it was never as entertaining as this. Please, share more next week! :0)

Te amo mucho, senora! I admire your marriage so much . . .
FWIW, http://www.textbooks.com/ has links to Te Mundo for a pretty good price ($10 or less) if you want to resolve that little bit of marital discord.
Buena suerte!

Dos cervesas, por favor.

I admire your ability to take a class together. I have a hard time picturing that in my house. And the nacho part would have so been something I would have said and horrified my DH.

A separate book for Mr. G. would be a small bow to sanity and allow us to continue read the great hilarity of what Proge calls The Continuing Floor Show!
Others are right....there's a book in this somewhere!

#3- that is my husband. And if he had asked me #4, I would have moved across the room to sit by the woman with the cool bag from last week!

Thanks for the laugh:)

January 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

OMG! This is killing me. I haven't laughed this hard in ages. Keep it up until your are fluent.

January 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

Oh my goodness, this is so funny. He's lucky you didn't use the sharpie to express your anger on his face.

January 15, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPatience

I think our husbands sense of humor may have come from the same bottle of DROLL. On the bright side, he was thinking about the color of YOUR bra (and not the chick with the great handbag). I seem to recall "burning the nachos" was a euphemism for
some merrymaking. So... when Mr G uttered "Buenos Nacho"s, perhaps he was hoping for some "flaming nachos" after Espanol!!!
Marriage ...what an amazingly mysterious and often entertaining creature you are!

January 15, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbramble

Mr. G is funny! I like that in a man!

January 15, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterknittergran

Two weeks down!
I can't even sit next to my husband in a church meeting. (We have one on Monday. I think I'll buy a blue sharpie.)
