So this day kind of started off badly at about 5:30 am when I had to get up and take some medicine because my migraine had come roaring back.
Unfortunately it was still in full swing when my tutoring client arrived for her session.
We were working on an exercise which required her to translate a conversation between Sara and José discussing what kind of movie they wanted to go and see, when she got to the following line:
“¿Adónde quiere ir Sara?”
which means, “Where does Sara want to go?”
So my student began translating the words aloud, and I heard her say,
“Where do…you want…to DO…Sara?”, with absolutely no realization of what she had just said.
And I, rising to the occasion as the mature, responsible adult I am, burst into peals of laughter and almost fell off my chair with glee.
And suddenly, my whole entire day just turned right around.
