    Gee, this ‘toon reminds me a bit of my recent experience of shoveling snow all the was to Stels. Melvin will be just as happy to get home with Myrtle and a hot cider as Dry and I were to get to *Stel’s* and gulp down those hot toddies………

    Wow Bev…. you’re up late…..


    Though you probably went to bed just before I got here…
    everybody always does…. sigh….


    Nice to see you, Six, if you’re still here….

    I’m on my way to the Tiki to check on the night shift….
    Stop by, if you have time, and I’ll buy you a drink….


    Kinda my turn tonight.

    I took a lot of French in school, and for some reason it has stayed with me…
    though it’s “school” French and not so much the vernacular…
    and by now, it’s dated, I’m sure.


    I’ve picked up some Spanish in Mexico and from co-workers and neighbors,and that’s just the opposite.

    I can gets something across but perhaps not properly.

    Great…..

    Fenton, the usual Glenfiddich please, for Red and for myself….
    Make his a double, but not mine.


    Thanks so much. You were born to be a bartender, I think.

    My problem with both of those languages is that I can say more than I can understand.


    I’ve never understood why people say things like “My parents spoke German so I can understand it, but I can’t speak it.”


    If you know the words, and what they mean…. just say them!


    But while I know how to say certain things, there are a zillion other ways to say them or to answer….
    and especially as native speakers slur the phrases, I have to remind people to talk to me as though I’m five.
