I was perusing my latest blog entries and I just remembered a great expression used by 'modern' women here in Brazil on dealing with men, the dating scene, very Sex and the City. I could even imagine Samantha saying it.
'So porque voce quer 300 gramas de salsicha, nao precisa levar o porco inteiro.'
"Just because you want 300 grams of sausage, doesn't mean you need to take home the whole pig.".
In other words, it means why deal with a man all of the time if all you want him for is for 'fun'.
There is a war between the sexes here in Brazil and unfortunately nobody is winning nor do either party want to call a truce....
