Assunto:  fair skin comparative form and 'terra fofa'
 
Mensagem:  Hi guys. I was talking about people with fair skin with my students last night when a question had us puzzled. I've got two students who have fair skin and the question was about a comparison between them on who had a more sensitive skin but using fair to talk about that.
I know that in the superlative fairest skin is possible but the comparative form sounded really weired to me. Even tough I said Vanessa's skin is fairer than Simone's. However, it didn't sound like something an American would say. I'd rather ask for help since I'm not a native and they may have a different and more common way to say that. 

Besides that, I've been watching TV lately and impossible not to be so involved with the traggic recent news about the mudslides around us and I got curious on how we can say "terra fofa". 

Now it's all. Thanks!!!
