    oh I am loving this I never did meatsr the subjunctive, perhaps I never will. Reflexive? Forget it! heh. But this was great education for me. This also reminds me that I need to listen to more Spanish so that I don’t lose it. I try to read a little bit every day but to listen, quite a different story! I love the way you write, very amusing and don’t mind me while I peruse other older posts here. LOVE language-related stuff!!
