We were driving home from a fantastic weekend up north, and passed through Lino Lakes, MN. Lino Lakes has been in the news recently for passing an English-only measure, somewhat odd (unnecessarily xenophobic?) for small town in the northern midwest.
After exclaiming “Everyone! Speak only English!” when passing the city limits sign, I had to explain to her what I meant. “That is SOOO Rude!” she said, and then she proceeded to speak Spanish very loudly for the rest of our driving through the town.
“Hola! Como estas?” she asked through the window, in her taunting, you-can’t-stop me way.
