One of the Reasons I Really Want to Speak Spanish

This afternoon I received this email from one of the Spanish speaking office staff at my school...

"Jesus's mom has a question for you. Please give her a call. She doesn't speak English."

Hmm, alright, let my find someone in the office who speaks Spanish to call her back and find out what the question is.


  1. Like a little game of round robin! I mentored in a school that was 100% Spanish speaking...all announcements over the PA system were in Spanish. I feel your pain, but it makes you wonder who helps Jesus with his homework.

  2. Hmmmmm. Maybe they think you're latina. You look like it.

    Or maybe...they were talking about Jesus Christ's mother...

  3. Oh my gosh! So freaking funny : ) Did you find a translator?

  4. I think Jason is right... It must have been Jesus Christ's mother. I mean Holy Mary Mother of God... although god and jesus aren't really the same person are they?

    Well really, isn't the belief that god is not even a person?

    But it does bring in a good point, if god created the heavens and the earth, who created god?

    He must have a mother, but he can't have jesus christ's mother!

    Actually exploring even further, isn't jesus god's son? and isn't mary jesus's mother?

    So if mary is the mother of god, does that mean god and mary had a bit of incest love happening?

    I can only think of the movie Agnes of God. So maybe mary just layed there as sillouhetted birds flew in circles above her.

    And Grandma J is right, who does help jesus with his homework?

    And if there was a night when jesus wasn't able to do his homework, does god write his teacher a note?

    Can you imagine?

    "Dear Ms Delight,

    Please excuse Jesus as he was unable to do his assignment as I was busy placing plagues on Egypt and could not drive him to Micheals for supplies.

    I know this is an inconvenience, but I have been a single parent ever since mary ran off with joseph.


    And wouldn't it be awesome if you had to write god back AND your name was Margaret?????

  5. Everyone knows that the way to communicate with someone who doesn't speak English is to TALK LOUDER! ;-)

    I'll be curious to find out what you do.

  6. I didn't know Jesus spoke Spanish. Maybe he speaks everything.
