will you ever be cool enough to learn a bit of your grandfather's language?
(Sniff) no, I have no facility for languages. I flunked Spanish 2 twice, and even now Spanish speakers can't understand what I say in 'Spanish.'
Actually, we learned some basic politeness words, out of respect for our ancestry.
Thank You - dziękuję
Good evening - Dobranoc
Grandma/Grandpa - dziadek/babcia
Father/Mother - ojciec/matka
Of course we learned to SAY them, not spell them. They sound very different than English speakers would guess.
We also had some Cieszkowski relatives. One of my uncles rode the Lippezan Stallions.
So, anyway, we have ascertained that cats speak Polish, even if they don't know it.
