Silly Monkey Stories #08 - Se habla español

 
 
Canada
As I have mentioned in countless posts throughout the last few weeks, it's been raining almost everyday in Waterloo, and last Friday was no exception. We were getting ready to go to the pool, but I had warned Gaby that the forecast said 'rain' again.
 
Sure enough, as we were almost ready to get in the car, it started to rain, and it rained hard! I then went downstairs to let the kids know that we weren't going anywhere after all... Santi had even invited a friend over, so there were five kids in the basement.
 
Me: - Kids, it's raining again, so we're not going to the pool after all.
Santi: - @#%#%$^&$!!!
Gaby (who had heard from upstairs): - Santi!!!!
Santi (as if nothing had happened): - What? At least I swore in Spanish...
Me: - Santi, this is probably not the best time to try to score pity points for finally speaking in Spanish at home...

Como he mencionado en muchísimos posts durante las últimas semanas, ha estado lloviendo casi todos los días aquí en Waterloo, y el viernes pasado no fue la excepción. Nos estábamos aprontando para irnos a la pileta, pero yo ya le había avisado a Gaby que el pronóstico del tiempo anunciaba lluvia otra vez.
 
Por supuesto, justo cuando nos estábamos por meter en el auto, se largó a llover, y qué lluvia! Bajé para avisarles a los chicos que al final no íbamos a poder ir a ningún lado... Santi hasta había invitado a un amigo, así que había cinco chicos en el basement.
 
Yo: - Chicos, llueve de nuevo, así que no vamos a poder ir a la pileta después de todo...
Santi: - La rep#%#% que lo p$^&$!!!
Gaby (que escuchó desde arriba): - Santi!!!!
Santi (como si nada hubiese ocurrido): - Qué? Al menos lo dije en español...
Yo: - Santi, este no es probablemente el mejor momento para intentar hacer puntos por finalmente hablar en castellano en casa...

  5. Saben que fue lo peor de todo esto? Ni bien terminó de decirlo, me pregunta: "Esto es lo que vas a escribir el martes, no?"Me he vuelto tan predecible?<>You know what was the worse about all this? As soon as he finished saying that, he asked me: "This is what you're going to post on Tuesday, right?"Have I become that predictable?<>
