As part of my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm highlighting a Spanish word each day 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 >>soga<< (line). And now for some random thoughts:
1 - What a "normal" person might call a rope, a sailor calls a "line." There's a saying that the only rope on a boat is the one attached to the ship's bell.
2 - Sailors like to speak in a secret language, which can sometimes be confusing to landlubbers. I call it Nauticalese.
3 - I'm not very good at throwing or catching lines. More often than not, they end up in the water.
Are you good at throwing things? What's your favorite word that starts with "S"?
