But hey, Bruce Jenner has the same problem! (:^p)
What I usually do is compose it out of my head, then run it through Google Translate Spanish--> Engrish to see if it 'understands' my bad Spanish. Of course, Google doesn't speak *any* language well, not even Engrish! (:^p) I'm terrible about remembering which words get accents and where also, and I'm Zen in Spanish; I only know present tense, so cannot relive the past or project into the future, just "Be Here Now" as Baba Ram Dass advised in 1971. Or as 'Mork from Ork' (Robin Williams) said: "Be here now, or if you can't then get there later!" (:^p)
Sometimes I game the system by using 'fue' whatever or 'Voy al/tengo qué *infinitive verb*' and that gets me by in 'Pidgin Spanish.' I really need to jump on torrents & pirate a copy of Rosetta Stone sometime.
[Snap!] Or better yet, shack up with a Latina hottie! ;)
Happy Spring Break, my friend!
@MeGast- Yeah, I wondered about gender agreement (los pies = sabrosos).
