As most of you know, one of the things I love the most about my husband is his use of the English language. See, his first language is Spanish so sometimes, his English comes out a little different.
My favorite is when he messes up idioms and common phrases. One time, my dad got up out of his chair and LoLo jumped into it quickly. When my dad came back, LoLo told him "You move, you snooze!"
Insert crazy amounts of laughter here.
Now in our family, whenever someone loses their seat we tell them, "You move, you snooze!!"
Another favorite of mine is when LoLo is trying to scold Bronx for not eating his food when we put it in front of him. He always tells him, "Bronx, choosers can't be pickers."
Hmmmm I think he means beggars can't be choosers, but I could be wrong. There is a huge difference between choosers and pickers, you know.
Then, last night, I was telling LoLo about my experience volunteering at a soup kitchen last week. I was telling him how I really didn't feel uncomfortable in the situation even though some of my coworkers expressed that they did. LoLo told me, "Well Erin, that's because you are really down to the ground, so you get it."
Down to the ground, eh? That's a new one. But I get it. Earth and ground are the same word in Spanish, "tierra".
I know I've been MIA lately, but I've just been feeling rather unmotivated and felt like I had nothing to write about... but then my friend Lacey mentioned that she missed my posts...and suddenly an idea popped into my head.
Sometimes you just need a little motivation to bring you back down to the ground.
