Too Many Languages

I am not really bragging; more of complaining.

I have just taken a test in my 7th languge (and passed it, by the way). Over the course of my life, I have now studied (and been tested in): (in order)

English (well, Okie)
Spanish
French
Cantonese
Pular
Thai
Mandarin

I actually took a year of high school French before I lived in Africa, so that is why it comes in as third. I'm really only fluent in Okie and French. I could probably polish up on my Spanish and be fluent with ina few weeks, but it has been a loooong time. In fact, the last time I had a serious conversation in Spanish, the muchacho I was talking with just quit responding to me. I mentioned this to Sally and she said, "Well, you switched to French 5 minutes ago!"
