I also miss bagels, walking to school, going to Blockbuster, and most of all English. I have a new profound love for our language. I think it is the best one in the whole world. While Spanish may rhyme all the time, English has more words and therefore more means to express yourself. I miss being able to tell descriptive, detailed stories. One, because my Spanish does not permit that and two, because in Spanish it is necessary that you say the noun and then all the descriptive adjectives after. Let me tell you that takes allllllll the fun out of talking. In English, I could say there was a huge, gigantic, absolutely terrifying, and repulsive............zit on my fore head. Spanish I have to say. There is a zit. It is huge, gigantic...etc. Thats no fun at all. There's no excitement. I miss the element of surprise that English has.
Spanish is also a lot more complicated. I'm tired of people making fun of me for not being able to roll my Rs. I swear there is not a sentence that I say, where someone doesn't laugh at me for saying it "funny." There are so many different verb tenses and so many things that you have to agree. It's way too easy to trip up. The worst thing in the whole world would be lying in Spanish. It's so easy to go wrong under pressure, but add the Spanish grammar structure to the equation and you're a goner. If I had to tell the cops a lie about where I was the night of December 3, 2008. I don't think I could. There are so many possible grammar mistakes to make, I highly doubt it would sound like I had a solid alibi.
