It’s very odd sometimes to hear an English expression “spanishified” out of recognition. Today I heard someone say “soy un redbull andando”. I’d have struggled to know what they were talking about anyway, as personally I never touch the stuff, but as it was pronounced “rethbool”, I lost the meaning completely. Turns out that this person walks a lot, as though they had taken some sort of energy booster. Okay, I know you can understand that now as you’ve seen it written down, but if you’d just heard it, you’d still be wondering too.
