Speak Your Language

When I was in the MTC, we were always encouraged to practice speaking the language we were learning. This we did even though most of our conversations went like, "I am [blank]." "Me, too." (Repeated ad nauseum.)Unfortunately, not everyone appreciated our commitment to learning.


  1. Dober šala. Jaz ljubezen to. Svoj najljubši del je punca iztiskanje.

  2. And here's the translation of Mindy's comment (using one of the web's language translators):

    "Good joke. I love it. My favorite part of the girl expression."

  3. Poor lunch ladies always get a bad rap. There must be some out there that love what they do and smile at the kids going through their line, though I have yet to see one.

  4. The cafeteria workers at the MTC are, by and large, BYU students. So those lunch ladies really have no incentive to be friendly to their customers--I mean, it's not like they're going to get a date out of it.

    I also imagine having every other missionary order food in a foreign language would get really old.

  5. What's better than finding a poor missionary looking for a girl to write him letters on his mission and then dear johnning him and breaking his heart? What a power trip. That should be incentive enough for those MTC lunch ladies to be nice to the missionaries.

  6. Jena, you are positively evil.

    Arie, nice self-portrait.

    Mindy, excellent use of Slovene
