A dead roach and a Duolingo "eureka!" moment
I had a moment two weeks ago when I realized that my Duolingo lessons might actually be sinking in, but I delayed posting about it because it's rather silly. One day when I was going in to work, I noticed a dead roach on the parking lot; the song "La Cucaracha" came to mind. I knew the words but it had always been so much Jabberwocky before, but this time as I sang "La cucaracha, la cucaracha, ya no puede caminar..." I stopped (if I had been in a cartoon a light bulb would have appeared over my head). Our secretary speaks Spanish, and my first words to her (after saying "good morning" of course) were "The cockroach can't walk! Why can't he walk?" I was really excited that my lessons were sinking in but she probably thought I'd gone crazy. Don't know what happened to the roach in the parking lot though - bird probably got him.
