I’m almost totally better, but here’s some Spanish I wish I hadn’t needed to learn:

La gripe – the flu. I maintain that what I had was a cold, but people keep disagreeing.

Asqueroso – disgusting. As in apologizing to my long-suffering field assistant for sounding that way.

Toser – to cough. And cough, and cough.

Jengibre – ginger. As in asking the cook for more ginger tea. It helped a lot, so I was using four or five tea bags a day sometimes. I’m not sure if there’s any left.
