I was driving home after work yesterday and decided that, before the "crap-ton" of snow descended upon Raleigh, NC, I wanted to make a pit stop to get some reading materials to ward off any boredom from being home all day. According to my handy conversion chart, "one crap-ton" of snow in the south = 1 inch. We got around 5-6 crap-tons today, which is a lot for us, and causes the city to shut down.
I ended up getting these from Barnes and Noble:
Since I want to be a well-rounded speaker of Spanish, I felt that this book was a necessary addition to my study materials. I'm lying; I just bought the book because it made me laugh. Just so you know, though, there are more than just dirty words and insults in the book; there are also common slang phrases. You never know when you will need to use some of this stuff in emergency situations. For instance, you never know when a situation will require you to call someone a "skank" (una macarra).
I don't think my teacher would like a beginner learning slang since she's trying to teach us the proper way to speak. But I have made flash cards of some of the phrases from the book that make me laugh. I'll keep these separate from the other cards.
