Quick question for you - what is the difference between these 2 words:
DIARREA and DIARIA? and which one should you not use in the middle of a study?

Well the first one could mean delhi belly - but what I want to know is - who used the wrong word??? And what was the reaction?

I'm not going to say who actually said the word...but it is a great blog moment! :)

Actually the word is spelt diarrhoea and it means got the skitters

Nurse Catherine - you are right in english - but I was spelling it in spanish!

So did you say "We should ready the bible every Delhi belly" rather than "We should read the bible daily"?
Almost as good as taking an important massage to the householders!

It means a daily dump, multiple dumps actually. It can leave you knackered and in need of a kip. Usually people who live in third world countries (NZ) have a problem with diarea...but in Ecuador it is rarely a problem. It's ALL GOOD!!

Harry Pitts - you have such a way with words! Are you sure you are not a wannabe kiwi? By the way how's those beans treating you!
Ann - yep that is about the crux of the conversation that I had yesterday but I don't feel so bad now cause Chad told me that Mark says it all the time! The surprising thing is - no one bursts out laughing - they are too polite!
