I don't speak Spanish; nor do I have a hankering to understand it. Mind you, because I have Latin roots, I do understand some words--words translated to "hello", "good morning/afternoon/night", and "I love you"--but recently I have been obsessed with Spanish teen soap operas like Patito Feo and Casi Angeles. Although their dialogue is far too rapid for me to comprehend, I don't mind it. I am learning Spanish phrases from it and confirming my notion that Latinos are awesome. I can't watch full episodes but I am able to watch it through couples' history so needless to say, I have acquired...er, crushes on certain Spanish fellows. Sigh. Watching those shows makes me want to travel to Argentina and speak Spanish and feel like one of those movie protagonists. Hasta la vex proxima.
