    Yup Fran, I agree that everyday is a day to have fun.
    Speaking of fun, yesterday, we (my family) went to the beach; when we got hungry we got to a restaurant. There, we were scanning the menu, it reads "ensopado de agulha" (stewed 'agulha', agulha meaning a fish).
    My little seven-year old, said "eca!'', something like yikes!  (he has a  long way to go when it comes to Portuguese!).    Obviuosly he was thinking about needles, which wasn´t the case.
     Worse, when I hit Google and typed ''agulha'' ther first images that came up...

 

     Same to him, when he discovers that ''bonito"; the tuna-like fish also called Boston Mackerel, false Albacora, Striped Apes (scientifically Sarda sarda), isn´t always beautiful to the eyes.   Of course, it always will be to a fisherman.

    But, who said that Portuguese language learning wouldn´t be a bumpy ride?
