I did it again.

Yes. I did it again, although it was not as good as the first semester. So, we wrote the Italian test today and I left the second semester with 97 out of 100 points! YAY! I did it because of sibertater, I guess. He likes nerds. So he said.

Now, all I need to do is start using what I've learned. And this seems to be a pretty hard step.........

AMEN! I used to see it all the time when I worked at an inner-city hospital.

Yes, you talking louder and slower helps...what are they deaf? Jesus.

I have a friend that does it one worse... he actually affects a fake accent. When we go to Chinese, Italian or Mexican food he literally takes on a fake Chinese etc accent while still speaking English... he honestly believes that will help them understand him. It's mortifyingly embarrassing, I won't even go out with him to eat any more LOL He is in many ways the typical "ugly American" when dealing with anything foreign :P

Oh. My. God. You're a wise man to order in with him.

I'm sometimes inappropriate, but not to that point. I wait until they're away from the table to use my bad accent.

hahahaha... of course, it's always appropriate *after* they leave ;)
