In my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm highlighting a different 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 >>usina<< (factory). And now for some random thoughts:
1 - I studied French and a lot of Spanish words are similar. Factory in French is >>usine<<. Having studied another Romance language makes learning Spanish easier in some ways, but harder in others. I'm bound to confuse the spelling of factory now in both languages - does it end with an "a" or an "e"?
2 - Factories make me think of tools. Tools make me think of boat projects. Boat projects make me think of naps. Naps are a good way to escape from boat projects. One can always hope that the elves will magically fix everything while you're sleeping.
3 - When I typed "elves," I started thinking about Keebler's cookies. Marketing is a powerful thing. I'll always associate elves with cookies.
Have you ever worked in a factory? Do you like to take naps? What's your favorite word that starts with "U"?
