Say It Right Series

Sometimes you get the wrong end of the stick

Posted by trevorb May 12, 2011 in the Group General Discussion.

I had to laugh, I've been reading a Chinese breeze reader and it kept talking about an older man 疼 a young lady.

I wondered what I was getting into with this chap hurting a young lady but the rest of the tone did not seem to match that so I looked 疼 up.

It seems as well as hurt or sore 疼 means "dote on"!  I love the way these suprises come out of the wood work sometimes and make you think you've learnt nothing...
