Umm.... (Spanish idioms)

Can't think of anything again. Except that I've lost twice at a local version of Monopoly and I'm not very good at it.

Some of the sayings down here are downright hilarious. I'm having my Central American parents explain three to me every night, out of a list of thirty-five that I have from my teacher. A few of the most interesting....

"When frogs grow hair"

"Longer (taller) than a milkman's whistle"

"He who doesn't cry doesn't suck (get fed, like a baby)"

"The monkey, though dressed in silk, is still a monkey"

"Flies don't enter a closed mouth"

I think the one about the frogs has to be my favorite. :P
