I thought I would share this funny story from my dentist’s appointment this morning (in Florida). I asked the hygienist if she could email me my dental x-rays as my husband and I are planning to move to Portugal in the Spring. She asked me, “oh, do you speak Portuguese?” to which I replied, “a little”. (You guys, especially Joseph and Molly can confirm that, right? ) Then she said, “well, it’s basically broken Spanish, right?”
I looked at her like she had just spat on my shirt. “Eu tive de morder a língua!”
I just replied, “we’ll, they DO have a common origin” and I just kept my eye rolling to myself.
