Smell Something / Huele Algo

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

One of San Geraldo's often-used expressions was "Stop and smell the coffee."

"Jerry, It's 'wake up and smell the coffee'; it's 'stop and smell the roses,'" I would repeatedly explain.

San Geraldo still hasn't learned.

Moose and Dudo don't want to wake up — or stop — and smell anything.


Una de las expresiones favoritas (Americanas) de San Geraldo fue "Parar y huele el café".

"Jerry, es 'Despierta y huele el café!' y "¡Parar y huele las rosas!", yo le diría.

Nota: Pienso que la primera frase sería: "Bajar de las nubes", también un frase hecho en Americano. Y pienso que la segunda frase es similar a "Tómate tu tiempo y sueña."

Jerry todavía no entiende la diferencia. 

Moose y Dudo no quieren despertar — o parar — y oler nada.

MOOSE.
DUDO.
MOOSE.
DUDO.

The sweetest things ... right before your eyes.
Las cosas más dulces ... justo delante de tus ojos.

      I can't believe you've still got snow. Everyone around here (not us) is sunburned (burnt?)! Some days, I wouldn't mind being one of our cats. (This is one of those days!)

  2. No roses in bloom here just yet. Ah but the coffee that has a delicious aroma and unlike some folk too much and it makes me sleepy. So I guess your cats are over dosing on the aromas too ?

      I love the smell of coffee... and roses. Our cats are overdosing on love.

  3. SG is just doing a "mashup" of sayings. I think I'll start using "Wake up and smell the roses." Your boys are gorgeous, but lazy. Doing what cats do best.

      A "mashup of sayings" describes most of Jerry's conversation. He has been known to say, "It's important to have all your ducks covered."

  4. Hi Mitchell, I love the photos of your kitties, so cute.
    Chuck has a habit of mish mashing expressions too. Sometimes it takes me a few seconds to figure out what he means!
    Take care.

      I usually have Jerry figured out quickly, but there are times when I have to scratch my head. Of course, even when I immediately understand, I give him a hard time. Our cats are adorable. Just ask them.

      We've got so much in bloom here, but we have things blooming throughout the winter, too. The orange blossoms are still filling the air with sweetness, too.

      Ha! Everything's relative, I guess. Lots of animals and an allotment do a lot more damage than two cats and a protected terrace. Just don't look too close or you'll see all the cat hair!

      I know. I know. However, we saw him on Broadway starring in Will Rogers Follies and he was surprisingly good. But I can see in your tremblin' smile, you're seeing way too much in me.
