I tried to call Alex in Mexico, thinking that this time I wouldn't be silly and try to speak Spanish to him. Problem being: Alex wasn't there. Don't know who was, but she didn't speak English.

Ella: Lksjro;isjeofjsoiejfisejfliisje;lifje
Yo: May I speak to Alex?
Ella: ¿Lkjw;oeijfowe;jfioweinfwe quien?
Yo: ¿Con Alex?

Yo: ¿Qué? ¿Qué? ¿Pluma? ¿Ah... sí?
Ella: Bueno. 982340923842092384308204092348.
Yo: (writing down various numbers that have no relation to the ones she gave me) ¿...2348?
Ella: Sí. Wlerjiowjfnk assistantes owiejroiwjeroiwjer llamar lwejrwiejrojwer.
Yo: Okay, okay, mmm hmmm. Gracias.
Ella: Hasta luego.
Yo: Au revoir. (immediately smacks self in forehead for speaking French)

Extremely traumatic. I should be warned when I'm going to have to speak Spanish. I should be prepared. I'm going to have a heart attack.
