Speak Gringo

At Metro on Saturday one of the little girls came up to me and asked me where I was from.  When I told her that I'm from the United States, she said, "Oh! So does that mean you speak gringo?" I told her that yes, I do speak gringo.  She then showed off by speaking in gringo for me- rish a reed ris wik dee fri sed.....

  The sounds that she made could perhaps have been something in English, but they were just English sounding sounds put together.  As she proudly spoke to me in gringo, I did my best not to laugh, and nodded encouragingly at her amazing abilities to communicate with me in my native tongue!
