1908.01 – DDOP.01 – Like Smoke



#Audio. #FlashFiction. Inspired by world cup soccer and a recent visit to Madrid.

He counters, “Me Ingles es como humo.” Like smoke.

But I understand more Spanish than I can speak, and even though the Castillian accent throws me a little, somehow, we manage to communicate.
