TOP 10 THINGS I LOVE THAT MY SISTER-IN-LAW HAS SAID

10. NAR NAR CHAI LA DAKPO MA-GYAB NA RIL RIL OWE LA DO CHAR BAB-YOUNG Which mean, you will get stone of showers on your round head, if you don't control your long tongue.

9. Michael go to the refrigerator three times before I talk to him in the morning (for cream in his coffee). He no talk until third time there.

8. I no drink the coffee anymore. When I drink the coffee, everything Michael say, WRONG!

7. You talk to your mama like that in India? Bam, bam! (After hearing Woohoo speak to me.)

6. After going to a Catholic Mass with me, she's been saying, "Alleluia!" at the end of nearly everything.

5. You cannot cut your hair after sun go down, your spirit will go right away.

4. Little Boy think he king! (Speaking of her son.)

3. I live like rock star! (She said this even when the floors were plywood, there was no central heat, no completed bathroom in the house, no oven, no stove, no dishwasher, you get the idea.)

2. I love to watch wrestling on TV! It's REAL, Sister Carrie!

1. "I LOVE IT!" said approximately 100 x a day.

Re. #1: I love her!

Re. #8: Hmm, that explains a lot in my house. Oh well, TT is just going to have to get really comfortable with remaining "wrong."

Happy New Year CP!

LUH-UV this list! Especially #10. I think that's my answer to your previous post. Yes, I can work at letting go of some things, but I must maintain control of my tongue!

Bet she picks up in fluency fast. When I was teaching ESL, I noticed that people who weren't afraid to have fun with the language, make mistakes and experiment, made more rapid gains than low linguistic risk takers, so to speak.
