My expression of the day


I have just learnt the funniest thing. Here in Spain one´s "other half" i.e husband or wife is known as....... wait for it....

Mi Media Naranja - my half orange.

Has anyone else heard this expression before because I certainly had´nt!

I would be interested to hear other strange expressions.
