I have to be cynical on this one. He lives to tell about it and went unharmed not having a leash. We can play the what if game all day long so I’m chalking this stuff up to a higher power like that bus that could hit me one day.
I only speak English, Redneck, and enough Texmex to order food, find the bathroom, start a fight in a bar, or get slapped by a lady I took several stabs at learning Spanish, but have not accomplished it.
I know a few words of Russian, less French, German, and Italian, and I can say "good morning, ma'am" in Indonesian. But mostly it's Google Translate.
