Farewell, My Bedtime Soporific
El Color de la Pasion winds up tonight. The mother-and-daughter female villains have committed suicide, the male villain is in jail, the various sets of lovers seem destined for happy endings, and your Fio has picked up a little more in-context Spanish. By the way, if you decide to try out a telenovela, these are the key words to listen for: amor (love), esposa (wife), esposo (husband), embarazada (pregnant), pistola (pistol, of course), asesinar (kill), You can figure out the rest of the story from the acting and facial expressions. One thing to look out for: THE SLAP. In fact, the Mexican Oscars list it as an award category.
