She minces no words.

Dont Mince Words

When in Rome

Posted on February 16, 2005 by Marna

When you do not want to be like everyone else in eighth grade, what do you do? You take French classes. I followed through with that language in high school and college. Now I live in Los Angeles and I’ve learned an important lesson.

Why didn’t I take Spanish? I need to take a conversational Spanish class so I can communicate with various audiences in this town (beyond ordering a burrito and a beer). In the meantime, I decided I’d try to learn a word a day, but I would choose words I’d use in every-day life, especially in the workplace.

Today I mastered whatever and douche bag.

Je n’ai sais pas. Manger tout son soûl.
