Put a Hat On!

I had taken more than five years of Spanish in school, from the eighth grade to my first year in college.

I learned more Spanish--actual Spanish used in real conversations--when waiting tables for so many years, from my Spanish speaking coworkers.

"Por favor, mantenga sus piernas cerradas," which means 'Please keep your legs closed.' You never know when that's going to come in handy.

Today, I learned that the Spanish slang for condom is "sombrero."

Well, it looks like a little hat, at first, when you put it on, before rolling it all the way down.

OMG! All this time doing AIDS work and I'd never heard of sombrero as slang. Learn something new everyday.
