    SmartPea85 got a reaction from Ariché in Spanish Words of Endearment?   
    When I was first learning Spanish I practiced by speaking to my Salvadorian boyfriend at the time. One of my terms of endearment in English was to call him "silly." When I looked this up in the Spanish-English dictionary, the translatilon it gave me was "tonto", so I texted him something and ended it by calling him "tonto". He wrote back a little incredulously, "You just called me stupid!" haha whoops.
    So that was the day I learned the two languages don't always translate exactly, especially when it comes to terms of endearment
