Oh, little príncipe, gradualmente yo empecé a buildear una pictura de tu cheerless vida. For mucho tiempo, tu only distractión eran los beautiful anocheceres. Yo en­tendí este new nugget de información la mañana del fourth día, cuando tú dijiste: I love los anocheceres.

Spanglish (a mix of the words "Spanish" and "English") is a name given to various contact dialects, pidgins or creole languages that result from interaction between Spanish and English used by people who speak both languages or parts of both languages, mainly spoken in the United States. It is a blend of Spanish and English lexical items and grammar. Spanglish can be considered a variety of Spanish with heavy use of English or vice versa. Since Spanglish arises independently in each region, it reflects the locally spoken varieties of English and Spanish. See Wikipedia for more information.
