This week’s friend is a long time DM pal of mine and fellow Canadian, also she is originally from my University Town, so that is fun! She is currently out west studying and working hard to stay alive.
I’m talking about Annie she has many names, Anniebean, Beanbab, Beano, Beanbag, Sweet bean, Beanie Baby, Beans, Beanwich, Jelly Bean, Beanlet, Sweet Baby Bean, Bene. As a second choice, I have been known also to just respond to “Bean.”
“Always, I’d believed that the Spanish verb hablar meant “to have,” so that when one said “Sí, hablo español,” one was saying, “I have Spanish—I have command of the Spanish language.” Operating out of that misconception, I said to the handsome young Cubans, “No hablo Chiclets.” They smiled courteously.
Later, I learned that what I’d said was, of course, “I don’t speak Chiclets.”
At first I felt pretty dumb. But then I thought, “Well, it was an honest statement. I don’t speak Chiclets.”
Then I thought: “Why not?”
In the months since, I’ve been teaching myself to speak Chiclets. Let me tell you, it’s easier to speak Chiclets than to read or write it.”
