Spanglish

Sometimes I go back and forth between English and Spanish so much, that I forget which language I'm speaking in.  Today while I was at Circulo Andante, I needed to tell the person in charge that one of the helpers didn't come.  I was speaking with a kid in Spanish, and then found Susie and told her, "Hey Susie, Ana no came today."  It wasn't just the awful sentence structure- I said it as if I were just learning English!  She looked at me and said, "Um, repeat that sentence please!"  It was so funny, and is so wild how I can mess up even my first language!
