rebe's word notebook: una mano de pintura

In English, you add another coat of paint.  In Spanish, it's mano (which also means hand).

How did I learn this?

I spent yesterday afternoon painting the new apartment.  I may not have mentioned it yet on the blog, but my roommate Gregorio bought a new apartment a month or two ago.  He plans to be moved in by June 30, but there's lots of work to be done first (painting, cleaning, installing appliances, moving in all the furniture, etc...).  His mom's been here living with us for at least 3 weeks now, and their daily routine is as follows:

When Gregorio gets home from work in the morning, the two head over to the new apartment where they pass the day working.  Around 6 or 7pm, depending on when Gregorio works that night, he drops off his mom at our apartment, grabs his work clothes, and is out the door.  Works all night, then repeat.  I don't know when this man sleeps.
