Oh, you mean [insert English word]

I went to the pharmacy today to get some nasal decongestant for my dad. I went in, all prepared with my list of fancy shmancy words like "congestion," "nasal decongestant," "oxymetazoline hydrochloride," etc etc.

So I go and explain everything, and ask for the decongestant, in the form of rociada [spray]. The pharmacist looks at me strangely. I say "it shoots out liquid?" and he says "Ahhh, quieres [you want] un es-pray."

Yes, I want "un spray." Thanks, man who speaks Spanish.
