I got a sales call early today. Picked up the phone, said hello, and didn't get a reply. So I said hola. Lady says "Mr. Boyle?" So I respond sí and we have a conversation, her in English and me in Spanish. She didn't know the verb gastar, so I said pagar instead. It lasted about 3 minutes...I told her that I couldn't spend much money right now. At the end of the conversation, she was like "I'm going to let you go. Study your Spanish more."
Ouch. I guess I am out of practice. I really need to make more of an effort to speak it. Writing is even becoming not so easy. ¿Back to Spain? I wish.
