    Well I don’t think this is fun, but I am bilingual,
    I am fluent in both English and Portuguese.
    The funny side of it is when I make mistakes and say silly things trying to translate things into words that don’t even exist 🤦🏻‍♀️😂
    Anyone that is also bilingual will understand the struggle 😉😂


    I mix Portuguese and French together by accident all the time.
    French is Canada’s second language.

    I do that too, specially when I am talking to my family! 😂
    Which one is your first language?

    English😊
    Which is your first?

    Portuguese, I was born and raised in Portugal and later my parents moved to the UK. 😊

    😮🤗 you’re so lucky.
    I was born and raised in Canada, but my moms from Portugal... I’m vacationing there for the first time this summer coming up...I’ve been to the Azores though. I’m going to the algarve.. any tips?

    Awwww 🤗
    The Algarve is amazing 🥰 and has the best beaches!!!
    What type of things do you like doing while on holidays?
    Also do you know where you will be staying?

    Anything and everything, we are renting cars so we aren’t bound to just one place. we plan on driving to Lisbon to visit the historic castle but other than that, all we have planned is being beach bums. I want to take in all the Portuguese culture though..😍 I don’t want to go to the club and listen to English music I noticed on YouTube the Algarve is very Americanized. I want Portuguese music 😂

    I’m a bit of a birder.
    No Big Year or anything like that but I have my ref books, binoculars, notebook with bird breeds that I’ve seen.
    I can sit still for hours watching birds.

    I love watching the birds. I have several feeders right outside my window. My dogs get taunted by the squirrels constantly. :)

    I once made George Lindsey furious. I couldn’t give him a free membership at the Costco where I was working when he came in. He told me I’d never see him in the store again and I replied that I didn’t care because I could see him on reruns of Hee Haw.

    I think I was in 8th grade -13/14
    My GF and I were in the city alone (NYC..lived about 10-15 min away in Jersey)
    I don't know if we ran out of money, but were stranded....we hitched a ride from an older man in a deLorean
    We listened to music and he dropped us off at home and we thought nothing of it....think this is more of a dumb move, than interesting
    I thank god I didn't end up chopped-up into little pieces that day :)

    I’ve been hooked by other people’s lure casts twice.

    First trying to help my son remove a gigantic fuchsia spinner thing from a catfish and that darn fish barked at me, jumped and the hook was solidly stuck in my thumb.
    Husband pulled hard as he could,
    had to go to the ER with that stupid giant lure sticking out of my thumb.

    Second time, my husband cast and sure as **** that treble hook stuck in my head.
    He got it out using the technique they used in the ER, got it right out.

    That was it for me and the little
    two-man fishing boat.
    I griped until he bought a nice 16’ fish-n-ski.
    We rarely used it.
    That one was on me, I admit. Lol

    I don’t care how good a movie is supposed to be, if I know it’s a tearjerker I will not watch it.

    What about endgame?

    I'm easily moved, you'd probably hate watching movies with me 😂

    😬 I’ve never seen any of the Avenger movies....... 😬 I know, I know.

    The reason I don’t watch movies that will make me cry is coz I bawl like a baby.😭😭😭😭
    Tears, snot, the whole thing.
    Especially if animals are involved. 🙄😭😭😭

    So no Marley & Me?

    I remember when that came on Christmas Day one year and my son, grandma and parents went to go see it. It was all quiet in the theatre and the first sad part came up. My mom, sitting right next to me, let out the biggest, loudest sob. My son and I looked at each other laughed and sank down in our seats. 🤣😂

    I don't cry during too many movies. I mean, come on, it's all just acting, right? But oh wow, Marley and Me released the flood in me. Any movie/book about animals dying, especially dogs, hit me right in the heart. There was another movie, based on a true story, the dog waited every day for his master to arrive at the train station from work, but 1 day his master stopped coming; he'd had a fatal heart attack at work. That dog still insisted on going every single day to wait. I think the movie was Haiku, or something like that. ETA: Looked it up; it was Hachi. So Sad :(

    I can’t get enough of fun facts about people/things. Tell me some of yours! It could be a lifelong thing, something from just now. Anything!

    This one is foremost on my mind...I’m just wrapping up my first 48 hr fast and I feel great.

    Go!

    Something people may not know about me is I drove cross country by myself. I went from MD to Los Angeles, it took me a little over a week. The scenery was amazing, and I can say I've done this in my life and did it alone.
