The Phone Rings...

... on my way home and one of my students wants to know what "pigstee" means.

What's the word? Pigst-ee. Can you spell it? p-i-g-s-t-y. Oh, pigsty. It's a place where pigs live, but it is also an idiom, remember those? Sure. So the idiomatic meaning is a really dirty place. Why are you asking? How would you say it in Spanish? Oh man. Um, un lugar que puercos viven? Or, for the idiom, un lugar muy sucio? Okaythanksbye. Anytime.

Then I get pulled over for driving without a front license plate that was knocked off when some dude went slaloming out of his parking space.
