    Re: Idioms

    One that I learned from a Spanish speaker that's supposedly fairly local is subir las hormigas. The literal translation--"to raise the ants"--doesn't make sense; idiomatically, though, it refers to someone who's so absent-minded that they wouldn't notice it if they were standing on an anthill.

    You're welcome to the forum, James, and you no doubt mean well, but we need to get to know new members better before we click on external links which may prove to be unhelpful or even damaging.
