Argh! I would love to go to this show!!
My mom came to the states from Poland when she was in her late teens with her parents. When I was young they spoke it around me all the time, and still do. I think it never stuck because my dad was born here and didn't understand a word. I can pick up on the gist of a conversation, but maybe If I went there on vacation and immersed myself... nah probably not.
