Multilingualism Kind of Creeps Up on You - That or it Creeps You Out

Hammamet, Tunisia

Connie at the Salon de The de Paris -
Of All the Things Spain Has Given Us
We Like the Cafe Life Most of all
An actual conversation from this morning at the Salon de The de Paris just off the Hammamet strip:

BC (to the waiter): Je desire un cafe con leche por favor

Me: Connie, its French here not Spanish.  Un cafe au lait.

Connie: Oh, right.  Sorry.  Un cafe au lait.

The waiter looks at me for my order.  I gesture to my wife.

Me: Dos por favor.
