That’s really great because you never know when you are going to have to transact a business deal in Latin. Just last week I was in Hoboken and when I went to a local establishment to order a special concoction to get me motivated to work. It was there that I encountered a barista who spoke little English, only Latin. I was in a real pickle as I speak little or no Latin. Fortunately there was a Catholic priest passing by so I sought out his assistance. Keep up the good work kids.
