I lost my mother-tongue. Drawing has other words.
Et de plus la pagaille console.
Obrigado![You know... after three trips to Portugal and two attempts at learning the language by 1950's and 1990's courses, I still don't know if "obrigada" is supposed to be said BY of TO a lady. No one ever laughed at me when I said 'obrigada' in the supermarket to a female cassier, but I'm still not sure.]Whatever: thanks for your poetic and beautiful posts!
of = or(of is the Dutch word for or)
obrigado is an adjective, as in much obliged, and gender-bound. theoretically you say obrigado and i say obrigada. in true life though, everybody says whatever comes first, one or the other.
