Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

No comic this week.  Erika’s dog has gone from getting diagnosed with giant tumor, to emergency surgery where we expected either lose her or have to put her down from cancer, to miraculously coming through and now maybe is going to be okay…in less than 48 hours.  I am physically and emotionally SPENT.

Let's all have a moment to be jealous of how good this is.  Srsly.

T never disappoints.

    I don’t know if anyone has pointed it out, but certain words may have connotations beyond their basic meaning. “amante” while literally meaning “lover” may be somewhat stronger than “amor” (love) or “querido” (dear).

    Admitedly, i’m speaking from a firsthand experience in portuguese, that is related but not quite the same and might be worrying about nothing…

    Or it could be on the “perro caliente” (hot dog) x “perro caliente” (horny dog) level of connotation difference. THIS is a confusion i’m pretty sure does strikes native spanish speakers of different countries on occasion. 😛

    This dialog was lifted from a previous in-comic page, so the mistake is mine, not T’s.

      Yeah, what actually got my attention was that it wasn’t the first time i read it, though i could not remember the original comic page.
