My brain works

My brain works funny.  Our week-long meeting (chapter) began last night.  There were a bunch of guys from our Japanese missions there.  Most do not speak English.  I was chattering along with them in Japanese when one of the younger ones asked me about my current work.  I mentioned that 90% of my parishioners are Spanish speakers.  They asked me about studying Spanish.  As soon as I started to tell them about it, the Japanese-speaking functions in my brain began to shut down as my brain was suddenly flooded with elements of Spanish vocabulary and syntax.
