bromas españoles

If you’ve ever lived in a foreign country and/or learned a foreign language, you understand how hard it is to make jokes that natives actually think are funny.  Especially for me!  If you know me well, you know I don’t tell the best jokes in English to begin with, even though I crack up at every single one.  So, what I am about to say might very well blow your mind.  You might want to take a seat…

I made a joke today!  In Spanish!  AND… the hairdresser laughed!  Yes, I did go get my hair done today, actually for the first time since I’ve been here (don’t tell Ron & Paul!).  But the thing is, I was just worried that it would get messed up and never look the same since Ron has been doing a fabulous job of it since I was sixteen… Okay, you can tell them that part, haha.

ANYWAY, the point of this entire post is this joke, but I have a feeling that it’s going to be a little less funny after all of the hype.  Oh well, here we go (remember it was all in Spanish) …

Hair dresser: You’re so tall! [as he lowers my chair for the third time.]

Me: I could sit on the floor if that would be better?

HAHA.  I know you’re probably not laughing, but really, I promise you, the hairdresser thought it was so funny.  Besides making a Spaniard laugh today I also got a 34 euro haircut (roots, highlights, wash, condition, & blow dry); and my first call for a co-op interview!!  More details to come about that one.  Hope you’re all enjoying your day as much as I am mine!

 

Ciao, amores:)
