Dos Días

I was having one of my dangerous between-meetings lunches the other day - 2 glasses of Ribera and two very tasty pinchos, when the friend on the other side of my wine glass let this slip, mid-paragraph:

"La vida son 4 días"...

Life is 4 days.

You're grinning, aren't you? There's more. Her comment led me to this gem, a classic Spanish saying if I ever learned one:

¡A vivir, que son dos días y uno llueve!

Get living! Life is 2 days and one of those 2......

It rains.


Some days I feel so wonderfully at home here.
