My Spanish phrase of the day is:
buscarle tres pies al gato
to complicate matters, to make things difficult, to split hairs, to nitpick
Of course, literally, this phrase means to look for three feet on a cat. But what one really intends to express with this idiomatic expression (modismo) is: to complicate things or to look for trouble. It is easy to locate a four legged cat, but three legged cats are more difficult to come by! To use some English idioms as a definition for this expression you could say: make a mountain out of a molehill or to go over something with a fine tooth comb.
No hay que buscarle tres pies al gato. (No need to go looking for trouble.)
¡Que tengáis un buen día!
