funny things.

Recently two funny things have been said to me that I must tell you about.  Believe me I’ve said my share of stupid things so I’m not laughing at them, but laughing with them!

#1 – at the place where you get your fingerprints.  The man knew ours was for adoption and our convo went like this:

Man:  So, where are you adopting from?

Me:  Haiti

Man:  Do you speak Spanish?

Me:  No not very well.  Just a few words.

Man:  Oh that’s too bad.

Me:  Well they don’t speak Sanish, they speak creole.

Man:  Oh no, they speak everything.

Me:  yeah some speak French

Man:  Oh they speak everything, English, French, Spanish, Chinese … everything

End of Conversation.

#2 – checking into hospital – woman was helping us out and talking to Fedna. I told her she was from Haiti and didn’t understand us.  She then asked if she spoke “African”!

Love it!

  1. HILARIOUS! Here is my all time favorite funny thing said to one of my kids – by a PRESCHOOL teacher: My son (now ten, about three at time) points to his soccer jersey. He says “Look teacher it’s says ‘Venezuela.’ My daddy was born there!” (My husband is a missionary kid). Teacher responds VERY enthusiastically, “Yes! That DOES say ‘Venezuela!’ That’s in Mexico!!”

    Mexico??? I can only imagine the things people will say when we bring home our little almond-eyed Latina. I’m sure we’ll be removing a lot of feet from mouths. 🙂

  2. hahahahahahah…

  3. I’ve heard several people comment that someone from Puerto Rico was an illegal alien.

    Sara: That is cool about your husband. Had some friends in college who were MK’s from Venezuela.

  4. Wha?????????????????
