Political Incorrectness: It's What's for Dinner

I called Scott the other day on my way home from work.

Me: Hey, what are you making for dinner tonight?

Scott: Fajitas.

Me: Ay yi yi yi yi yi yi! Awesome.

Scott: Were you just being Mexican or Indian?

Me: Uh, I am celebrating fajitas. Clearly I am being Mexican.

Scott: Well, it sounded Indian.

Me: What!? That was totally Mexican. Now if I was being Indian, I would have said Yi yi yi yi yi! See the subtle difference? One begins with an A and the other begins with a Y.

Scott: There is no Y in the Indian alphabet.

Me: Don't question my Indian knowledge, I am an expert on it.

Scott: Name two Indian tribes other than the Omaha and the Cherokee.

Me: That's easy - the Sioux and the Blackhawks.

Scott: One of those is a hockey team.

Me: Oh. Well, anyways, fajitas sound good.

I think I need to work on my culture awareness skills. And also my accents.

I like to think I'm good at accents, but my husband accuses me of Russian undertones, no matter the language I'm trying to project.

Political correctness abounds at our house, too...HA!
