Overheard at Lunch

Marcy, Breanna and I went to Applebee's for lunch and we were treated to a testament of the quality of education here. Four women were seated at the table behind me. Two of the women were probably in their thirties, while the other two were high school girls. Their conversation sounded something like this.

High School Girl: I'm taking spanish this year.
Woman: That's great, I took spanish, and I was so glad I did. To this day I can still read spanish.
HSG: You can?
Woman: Yeah, well I can't translate what the words mean, but I can pronounce them correctly.

Now that's impressive. I wish I could do that.
