Hooked on Phonics…Spanish Edition

My mom has been obsessed with the grease man coming. My sink has a strange odor and the grease man comes to empty the trap once a month. I told her I think he comes on a Wednesday but we needed to ask. So, she asked my neighbor and my portero, using her google translator…GO MOM! When I got home, she said that they told her he comes on a Miercoles…a Wednesday…but they were not sure which one. I got this message this morning that absolutely made my entire day happy:


“Guess who came on this mericalest!”

Miercoles = mercalest. To the American English ear…Close enough.
