Here are some fun phrases and words I learned at work(trabajo) this month:
X is a beautiful princess!
X es una princesa muy bonita!
(I was singing it to her in english to try and wake her up and then decided to translate it for better effect.)
(Over the walkie-talkie the maitnance guy said that he was passing through the new area. X and A thought he said he was passing diarrhea.)
Me duele la cabesa.
(As in, Ash- Maybe you’re on drugs. Today you scare me. And you’re making my head hurt.)
(As in, ‘MORE EGGS! Huevos!’ *Everyone snickers* This was brought to my attention because I was asking how to say someone smells like something, and I used huevos as a filler word, and she was getting a kick out of it. She then informed me of the double meaning of this word.)
I’m not tired yet.
Todavia no estoy cansada.
Also, X noticed my growing interest and wrote me a list of words to look up:
Animals and Insects
Sapo: Toad Conejo: Rabbit
Mariposa: Butterfly Venado: Deer
Gusano: Worm Caballo: Horse
Mosca: Fly Perro: Dog
Serpiente: Snake Cerdo: Pig
Cucaracha: Cockroach Gallina: Chicken
Grillo: Cricket Toro: Bull
I knew mariposa (thank you Barbie) and perro, and was like, duh as far as serpiente was concerned. Cucaracha I learned earlier when I met my first one.
All in all, productive month, we will see what I learn next month.
