I've been thinking of changing my screen name. How does GaelicSoxFan sound? I'm Scots-Irish, so that would make me Gaelic, and I'm a fan of the Chicago White Sox.

Hey Raven, what you should have said was Senorita La Loca, although if she is Leo's mother-in-law, it would be Senora La Loca! Senorita=miss senora=mrs
OK, Spanish 101 is dismissed for today...... laugh.gif

Interesting local variants abound however. Out here one would generally address a young lady as joven (or la joven to designate the female gender).

Señora is a lady who is either older, or married, or something like that (believe me, sometimes these things can get tricky too, thus the use of the word joven.)

Señorita does indeed mean young lady (never married, and ... ummm.... supposedly... well.... untouched ... if you know what I mean) However, and this is the big however. Out here where I am, if a group of guys are out on a weekend and someone mentions something like, Vaminos, buscamos unas señoritas.(Let's go, find us some girls.) Ummm, the implication is that there will probably be some sort of like, you know, hourly fee involved, and the word señorita is being used in a different way. biggrin.gif Personally, I steer clear of that word completely for fear of making a real social gaff and getting my lights punched out by some 100 lb Tai Kwan Do expert.
