one of the dangers of teaching your children Spanish when you don’t really know Spanish

As we walked out of the movie theater from Megamind, we entered an all concrete hallway and I said, "Ay no, ¡estamos atrapados en una calabaza!" Hmmm… Maybe that should have been calabozo.

Calabaza = pumpkin

Calabozo = dungeon

What a difference two vowels make…
