Hello from sunny Acapulco,
I was looking forward to my usual daily wake up in paradise when I rolled over at around 11am and my beautiful Mexican wife looked like Alvin from the Chipmunks. Her small face was bloated to nearly twice its normal size with her cheeks in huge balls.
"Er, have you looked in the mirror?" I asked her in what I now call Berspanglish because it is my own personal brand of Spanglish having picked up poorly pronounced words and slang from dozens of different Spanish speaking countries and which now leaves most Mexicans confused as to my background much the same way that in English most people can't really place my accent and style of speaking after having lived all over the world for the last ten years.
