Suck my tickets!

I'm still struggling to overcome the language barrier, whilst my Spanish has improved I've still got a lot to learn. I can give you an amusing example from a few nights ago:

During an amorous encounter with my GF, I encouragingly proclaimed "Si amor, chupa mi boletos".

She immeadiately stopped what she was doing (much to my annoyance) and burst into laughter.

Boletos = tickets.
PELOTAS = balls.

That's marvellous! I had a language thing a few weeks back. I do a few shifts behind the bar of the pub I work in and we've recently taken on a Polish girl. She's been teaching me the odd phrase in Polish and I've been calling her Polish Princess, or so I thought. Because of my crap accent I've been calling her Polish butcher for the past week and a half! Oh well!

LOL. Some of the cock-ups we make are truly hilarious. Is she cute? ;-)

Yeah she's stunning. Busty and blonde, a lethal combination!! Also sent her a text using a translator on the t'internet which actually turned out to be Russian now Polish, oh how she laughed!

OK, here's the plan: spend some of your poker winings on two tickets to Krakow. You'll have a blast and she'll love you for it! Buy here dinner in the square and tell her: "Kocham ciebie!".
