Although even in Spain, McDonald’s is apparently using the English, “I’m lovin’ it!”, I am working on the little bit of Spanish that I know, with the people behind the counter at the McDonald’s at Broadway and 96th.
Everyone who works there seems to be of Dominican extraction. I try to give them a smile and not screw up too much.
And in something semi-related, until I heard that the Royal Spanish Academy decided that the Spanish alphabet had two too many letters, I had no idea that there were 29 of them now down to 27 — having declared “ch” and “ll”, kaput.
¡Ay ya yi! No me gusta!
