Blonde Spanglish #2: Gentleman

Blonde Spanglish: Gentleman

I’ve heard this story… Who hasn’t? It wasn’t Spanglish, but that typical danger of words sounding alike in a foreign language, that put a blonde friend of ours in peril outside Pereira…

What happened? She wanted to go pony trekking, but instead of saying: «I would like to ride a horse,» (caballo) she said: «I would like to ride a gentleman,» (caballero) accompanied by enthusiastic bouncing up and down.

That’s as bad as… That girl we heard about in the city butcher’s? The one who politely asked for some ternura (tenderness) instead of ternera (veal) And people think it’s easy being blonde…
