Then there was the time we were out with our friends, and we were discussing the seafood menu. Choco (cuttlefish) was on the menu so I said 'Me gusta chocho en la parilla!'

I thought they were going to choke.

Ah well. Then there was the time when a collection of little old ladies all in black from the village stopped to ask me what I had been doing to get all hot and sweaty in the garden. Desperately groping for the apt phrase, I remembered the one the teacher had said, but instead of coming out with 'Estoy hecho en polvo' I managed something like 'Estoy echo un polvo'

Ever seen respectable little old ladies sobbing with mirth? I thought they were going to end up on the floor.

Ah well, it certainly broke the ice!
