Belated WIX: Prendere in Giro

It’s Thursday, late again. Scusi.

We all like to make fun, tease or pull someone’s leg. And I am a well known sucker. Yep, I fall for everything!

Hold on though, the Italians like to spin or take around. Or even give you a drink: cercare di darla a bere. Either way you may have difficulty walking a straight line afterwards!

German’s will take your arm: auf den Arm nehmen; a well-mannered jest!

The French come closer to taking you for a ride: faire marche, though you’ll have to walk! (Or hitch a ride with the Swedes: driva med nån). They might put more effort in it and play a trick on you:  jouer un tour à vous which directly translated is play a turn. That could make you dizzy too!

Finally, if you’re goofing with friends in Argentina you might want to keep your hat on: Tomarle el pelo a alguien so the don’t drink your hair!
