Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt2)

I want to share this exchange between me and my grandmother:

Raquel: "I have a terrible backache! "
Grandmother: "It probably means you're hungry. What should I get you?"

I hope things get better soon! Enjoy your time off, though!

I don't mean to question you, but is this a completely accurate English translation from what was actually said?

Otherwise I don't get where your grandmother is drawing that conclusion from.

Also, I hope your back stops aching soon!

Actually it's not a very accurate translation. But the meaning did not get lost in translation, it just comes to show that my grandmother thinks I look like Ana and she is always trying to shove food down my throat. Nothing else.

Okay…?

Yes, I haven't seen her since June/July. I feel so guilty right now.

Well, if it's not an accurate translation I don't know what to make of it then. I don't speak Portuguese.

Just forget it, though. This is confusing, for me at least, as many of our conversations are. My fault, as always, though.

I sorted out the stuff with my dad and grandma. I'll go and visit them both next weekend. Problem is I keep remembering about other family members who I haven't seen for a while!

Why do I confuse you so much? You keep saying that!

You mean this weekend or the other? Always nice spending time with the family

You are enigmatic… Just kidding, but I am not very good at interpreting. You should know this by now.

So in a week's time I will go. Should be nice to catch up with grandma, and hopefully I will be able to see my cousins, also.

Well does anyone else have a problem understanding you? No.

So it's clearly my problem, not yours. You don't need to even take it into account, though!

It's not a problem. It's funny. But do you have trouble understanding other people? Who else?

Um, difficult question. Let me get back to you on that one. I need to think about it because it's not a straightforward answer.
