Conversations at Casa Quezada

A couple of years ago, I stumbled across the blog Latinaish, and it quickly became one of my favorites. I got a big kick out of their love story and laughed along with Tracy's humorous insights into bicultural, Spanglish life.

She has a series on her blog, where she highlights the funny conversations that take place in her bilingual house. You can check out some of those here and here.

Today, she's let me join in the fun on Latinaish with Conversations at Casa Quezada. I'm sharing some of our favorite Spanglish-y moments with gems like:

Billy: (hanging pictures) Does it look straight?

Me: Hmm... I'm not sure. Are we sure we want them there? Maybe a little higher?

Billy: (handing me a hammer and some nails) Go kill yourself?

Me: Um... What?

Billy: It's an expression. You know...

[long pause]

Me: Oooh, knock yourself out!
