Thank you MOH1, that does help, but I was listening to a pod cast, Coffee Break Spanish, where they were in a restaurant and said "somos tres." As in, we are 3 for a table. I'm curious why he said it that way since they will not be permanently 3, but will be three only for dinner.

  • I am guessing, it is because they will be 3 for as long as their dinner lasted, and that time frame is what mattered to the waiter. Then again, it is just my guess. - mathslover Dec 15, 2011
