In my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm highlighting a Spanish word each day during April as part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I'm also sharing the random thoughts that pop into my head when I try to pronounce them.
* * *
Today's Spanish word is >>impulsor<< (impeller). And now for today's random thoughts:
1 - Some of you may already know what impellers are. For the rest of you, here's the official definition: "The rotating part of a centrifugal pump, compressor, or other machine designed to move a fluid by rotation."
2 - Pretty boring definition, huh? I prefer to think of an impeller as a whirligig. You know, like a pinwheel that you might have played with as a child.
3 - One of the places we buy boat parts from is Defender. For some reason, they mailed out a catalog. I can't remember the last time I bought something from a catalog. I do all my shopping online these days.
4 - The cover of the catalog looks inviting with its picture of a lighthouse. Once you open it though, you enter a world of rather dull descriptions, the occasional picture, and prices that will make your jaw drop.
Do you shop from catalogs? What's your favorite word that starts with "I"?
