My Spanish word of the day is:
a pet, a stroke, a pat, a caress
A mi perro le encanta que le dé caricias. (My dog loves when I pet him.)
I learned my word of the day while watching and listening to a song on YouTube. The song is called Geografía by Spanish pop music band La Oreja de Van Gogh. The songwriter expresses his or her desire to invent a country with a loved one in which words like native land, flag, nation, border, race, destiny, and future have personal meaning.
Caricia, my Spanish word of the day, occurs in this section of the lyrics:
Me encantaría que nuestro país tuviera
Un arsenal inmenso de caricias bajo del mar
Para que al caer de noche yo encienda dos velas
Para invadirte por sorpresa en la intimidad.
My personal, very rough translation is: I would love for our country to have an immense arsenal of caresses under the sea, so that when night falls, I could light two candles and start a surprise intimate invasion.
