The other night I was at the grocery store and an older woman approached me with a confused look on her face. "Espanol?" she asked.

"Uh, hablo pequito espanol," I replied.

She proceeded to explain (in spanish) that she was looking for oregano and didn't know how to find it among the numerous spices on the shelves. I located it for her and that was that.

But I had to ponder...of all the people in the grocery store...why did she think the translucent white girl with red hair was the most likely one to speak spanish?

how do you say oregano in spanish?
um, oregano.
from what i know of spanish speakers, if you didn't reply in spanish, she would have asked you for help in english. maybe she just wanted to have a story for her blog about how this paper-white chica with red hair spoke spanish at the mercado.
