I am still not doing very well.  The other day I asked someone to play (jugar) apple, instead of  asking for apple juice (jugo).  Nice, huh?  Then when I was at church when someone sneezed and I said, salud, they looked at me and clapped.  They were surprised that I had such an extensive vocabulary. 
I really need to work on my Spanish.

Hey, I took five semesters of Italian in college, and I'm still going to be having that same problem in Milan. Not fun.

Oh, girl - I totally know what you're saying about the Spanish thing. You're so funny! But it will come to you - you almost just got there! It will come.

My mom has got some really funny stories about her failed attempts as she learned spanish. She told everyone over the pulpit that she was pregnant "embarazada" when she meant to say she was embarrassed. She also ordered us beer popsicles when she meant cherry popsicles. Cerveza is beer, and cereza is cherry. Good laughs.

Luckily the man didn't actually have beer popsicles.

The fact that you even attempt is awesome!
