Language barrier

Three Mexican guys came in today, and after discussing amongst themselves what to order, approached the counter.

The one guy who was the most comfortable speaking English ordered.

“You have Hawaiian?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said, pointing at the menu. “The ‘Aloha Freddy’ is our Hawaiian pizza.”

“Okay, we like big Hawaiian… hot,” he said. The other two nodded.

I pointed at the wall where our pizza pans are hung and asked, “Big? Which one?”

“That one,” he replied, pointing at the 2-foot Giant Pizza pan. His friends nodded while laughing. “We’re hungry! You can make it half hot?”

Confused, I asked “Half Hot? The entire pizza is hot.”

“No! No no, we only like half hot,” he replied.

I shook my head and said, “We can’t do only half hot.”

“Si,” he said. “With jalapenos.”

Ahhhh. Yes. We can do that.

I’m wondering if I should take a basic Spanish course now.
