Take Note: No matter what level you are in a language, you will ALWAYS have cultural brain farts... especially if you are already prone to do that in your first language.
*Mamá chilena asked me in the kitchen tonight if I liked or knew how to cook. As I was multi-tasking (first mistake) and heating up my hot chocolate, I replied "Pues, no tanto pero a mí me encanta orinar." Which translates as, "Well, not a lot but I love to go pee." No more than a second later, I yelled, "NO! NO! HORNEAR mamá. HORNEAR." (No, no BAKE mamá, BAKE!)
But by that time, no dignity could be recuperated.
Roars of laughter.
P.S. Classes start tomorrow!
