The Mexican and I dated for a while (bout 4 yrs) got married, then had a son.
Our son is in pre-k and I guess they play a rhyming game at school.
So, we are in the car and "son" says, "let's play the rhyming game!" I said "ok, CAR"
son, "STAR", -the mexican "BRIGHT"-
me, "no, no, no.... you have to say something that RHYMES like BAR!"
So, we try it again. me,"CAT"-son,"RAT",-the mexican"DAT"
son,"what is a "dat"???
me,"your father is trying to say "THAT"
me, "Let's think of a different game!"
I was telling a friend about this and she said it sounded like a Modern Family (television show) moment. That it reminded her of Manny, Gloria, and Jay. That statement is sooooo true! I feel like I'm trapped in some Modern Family moments....LOL
It's simple things like this that sometimes make me laugh. Although the mexican speaks English, the accent is still there.
this was a quickie......
more to come.
