As I have indicated before, Hal has tried repeatedly to claim a proficiency in speaking Spanish. Early in the post Chatterbox, he tried to tell me that “Somo” is Spanish for “alpha cop”. And in the post Speaking Spanish, he tried to redefine “yes” for the Spanish speaking community.
So I was more than a little surprised (and pleased) when he announced in the car yesterday, “Mi nombre es Hal.”
“Is that Spanish?” I asked.
“Is that Spanish that you are speaking?”
“When you said Me nombre es Hal, were you speaking in Spanish?”
“Oh. I don’t know.”
