A Sigh of Relief

So last night I was getting carne asada at Rodeo Grill – not an unusual occurrence by any means. Anyways, the lady working the counter was trying to ask me in English how asada I wanted my asada, and having a little trouble. So I talked to her in Spanish(still shy about speaking Spanish to a new person…) and she said “Hablas espanol?!?” while giving the biggest sigh of relief I have ever seen.

She was really happy that she was able to talk to me in Spanish, and I was glad to be able to communicate with her, and it was obvious that she became much more comfortable with me than when I was speaking English.

I only bring this up because it sort of goes back to a post I made the other day.
