To learn a foreign language is to be the object of ongoing criticism.  You and I speak several languages, and we know this to be a fact.  This is the wrong pursuit for a "flor delicada".  If you are not lucky, you are not criticized and you think that only Shakespear and Winston Churchill speak better English, and only Machado de Assis and Jorge Amado speak better Portuguese.   rsrsrs

 

If you catch me being cruel, unkind, or whatever, don´t hesitate to bring it to my attention.  It was not done with malice.  I am not an SOB.  In the case of my favorite fan, it is quite possible that he had no understanding of what I had said.  (Whatever it was I had said.  He lacked the courtesy to be specific.)  If I have trouble understanding his posts in English, why wouldn´t he have trouble understanding mine?  I just wish he had been a man about it.
