In the old days of snail-mail a guy named Diego wrote and sent a letter, keeping a carbon copy for himself. Afterwards he noticed that he had signed the letter, writing Digo instead of Diego. So he sent a new message, correcting the typo:

"Donde digo Digo no digo Digo, digo Diego".

Lindo sábado,

Quevedo

Hey, I have an idea. Instead of posting tongue twisters in Spanish for all the gringos to struggle with, why don't we post some in English so Quevedo can have a hard time? A continuación, one of my favorites. Childish, yes, but the puns never fail to make me laugh. Plus the r, v, and h sounds are hard for native Spanish speaker to pronounce. !!!

Here's a little tongue twister we can have little fun with:

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
Now, See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw
Before Soar saw See,
Which made Soar sore.
Had Soar seen See's saw
Before See sawed Soar's seesaw,
See's saw would not have sawed
Soar's seesaw.
So See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
just because See's saw sawed
Soar's seesaw.

I know, its such a challenge. After a few runs, your face contorts, lips, tongue and mouth needs relief, and blithering isn’t to far away. Laugh

Anyone interested in the story of Paricutín volcano might enjoy this tongue-twister about one of the villages destroyed by lava:

El arzobispo de Parangaricutirimícuaro
se quiere desarzobispoparangaricutirimicuarizar
¡el que lo desarzobispoparangaricutirimicuarizare,
un buen desarzobispoparangaricutirimicuarizador será!

I always thought the idea was to give us all an easy time around here. Including Quevedo.

Anyway, easy and warm saludos from Villahermosa, Tabasco. Everyone.
