Shar is going to be the source for new Chubacabre rumors.
He weighed in at 12 lbs for his health check up. Funny enough, he's not much of an eater, but he is quite muscular. Its a trait of the bengal breed.

Only six lbs, eh? Sounds like a kitten!

That sounds nice, but we have neither a radio or a Scrabble game. We do have Skip-bo and Sets, and now a bunch of books we borrowed from Fred and Amy.

He looks very confused. Then again, if I'd lived in a smallish loft all my life, and then "oh hey you live outdoors in the Costa Rican wilderness now okay have fun", I'd be a tad shell-shocked as well.

What is this about Joe and Heather living in the wilderness. Heck, they live right in town next to the community center. Just because they can't understand what anyone is saying...

*crosses fingers* You just typed a comprehensible statement in English, so you are still ahead.

I'm thinking when you say la bana you mean el bano.

Only phrase I need is : donde esta el bano?

Is it just CR that it is rude to say quiero? My girlfriend's mother uses it to order food. But then again she knows the guy she's ordering from.

I prefer

Me da un burrito de carnitas, sin cebolla.

Or

Me puede dar un burrito de burro
