No episode of La Vecina today, so how about…

a story about crude oil theft in Texas?

It’s a pretty short NPR piece, and there’s a transcript available if you’re not somewhere you can listen to it.

I think I prefer the sound of saqueadores to “oil rustlers.”  Somehow “rustler” doesn’t sound quite sinister enough…can you imagine applying that to Pedro?

Kat is 5ftLatina. She is really 5' tall (and probably shrinking) and Latina. She is not actually a cactus, but she is both prickly and cute. Mr. 5ft is actually married to Kat, but is not 5' tall or Latina. He is also not a form of plant life.

This is great! There are so many words that I think I’ve just internalized and I don’t even think of the English word. I can’t imagine even trying to figure out the English.

Regañar is another word that for the life of me I have to look up every time it comes up in my recapping because I can’t think of a good English word… And regañar isn’t even that difficult a concept.
