backwards syntax.. No clear expression or word for "no".. strict rules for gender, politeness, AND affection.. as ridiculously colorful and figurative as anything in English.. 256 character alphabet.. several "sounds" that are almost identical but have completely different and confusing meanings..

Yeah, its a lot of fun

that's what they're called?! i MISS THESE! i like the raspberry ones but i'd rather have dulce de leche- when i lived in a particularly run down area of little havana (jesus christ, i lived everywhere in that neighborhood) there was this grimy little convenience store that i'm pretty sure was really drug front of sorts because i always saw the same few people in there, but goddamn i loved these things. five to a pack for a dollar, no name on them or anything. i miss the fried dough bits with sugar on top too, whatever those are.

makes sense, i was in a particularly venezuelan patch of the neighborhood.

did i mention this dude who lived in miami now lives here and keeps inviting me for starbucks? a) i told him literally "my dad is here all weekend so i'll be hanging with my dad" and he says "well i'm sure we can get lunch in between!" and b)he tried to use his ford taurus as some sort of point to try and seduce me? -sorry for the uptalk but there's no real way to word it via typing that conveys my amazement- the guy literally says "i have a nice ford taurus i can pick you up in"

Here is a great example of the more confusing aspects:

the word Mata has two distinct meanings depending on if one properly glotalizes the "t" sound, and depending on regional dialects, many Amharic speakers do NOT glotalize as harshly as others..

(mata) መ ~ come here/in

(mata) መ ~ hit

So if someone says, "Zare yemetah." it can mean either "today he came here" or "today he got punched"..

Want to get even more confused?

"Zare mata yemetah" could mean either "tonight he is coming" or "tonight he is getting punched" or "tonight will you punch him?" depending on exactly how the "t" sound in "meta" is pronounced

That exact same expression could also be a question, "Is he coming tonight?" or "Is he getting punched tonight?" or "Tonight will you punch him?" if there is "uptalk" at the "yemetah"...

No if you READ all these the difference is totally obvious (because of the 256 letter alphabet things are very very precise) but if you are listening? Need to be a very fluent speaker..

i appreciate that being punched is the alternative meaning, tee hee. that's so fascinating. how is sarcasm approached in those type of languages? or do they use body language more?

!@#$%!- if i had the energy/resources for a dog, i'd love one. my folks are taking care of our neighbors' doberman for a few months, and she's precious

Oh my Lord, you don't even want to now how ritualistically complex sarcasm, being facetious, or ridicule is. Indeed, there is a very very complex literary art form called "Wax and Gold" which is built on the concept of hidden meanings and double entendre where the hidden or "gold" meaning of a poem is obviously discernible only when read but the art form is being able to figure it out strictly by listening and thinking about the word play..

So I used to be friends with this guy. We got along but he made shitty art. Like, he had a thing for the Grateful Dead dancing bears.

I made the mistake of telling him one drunk, thoughtless night. Things ended.

Just found out he died a few hours ago. 42. An asthma attack sent him into a coma, and four days later...

No idea how to process this.

that reminds me of a close friend my grandma had years and years ago (i was a small kid) who would come over, and had this cockney accent and still used the rhyming slang some 30-40 years after emigrating to the states. i was enchanted by it because it was like a secret code to me, and she was this small old lady talking about going up the apples and stuff.

sorry to hear, evollove.

You guys should know I posted anticipating a not-chilly response and I wasn't disappointed. Not bad for one leg.

Probably. I do feel some guilt.

I think what i said was, "You have ability so I don't know why you waste your time no this popart shit." So I could've been worse.

Hey, I didn't know he was going to die tragically young!

So, I'm going to be pressured into buying the very art that ruined the friendship in the first place.

And with that, my life becomes a Maupassant story!
