In this post, I’m griping about the GRIPE.
When people have the flu, they often gripe, whine, moan, and otherwise feel sorry for themselves. I’d like to do this. Like George Costanza… I yearn to do this. But I have been deprived of this conventional behavior because the entire Redanglespanish family has LA GRIPE in one state or another.
Yesterday, Redanglespanish, Jr. (the 8-month old) unbelievably managed to unload #1 and #2 on the in-law’s miniature schnauzer. Moments later, he threw up on the dog. Too much información, I know. But really – it’s kinda amazing.
Oh, and now the in-laws are sick too.
Here is some sick Spanish for you. Hat tip to a great post from Vocabat aka Katie Jacoby and her Sicko post 2 weeks ago. You can read it here.
sick… Think of the infirmary….
bedridden… Think “guarding the bed”
virus… Identical Spanish Twin!
to vomit… Another Spanish Twin!
Me siento maluco
(may SYAYN-toh mah-LOOH-koh)
I feel lousy
Not medicina, that’s more of the academic variety. Medicamentos are what you take to get better. Medicina is what 90% of all actors pretend to do on TV that are not on some Law & Order and/or CSI spinoff.
Hola NyQuil… Hasta luego, mundo….
