> Of course we have Queen Elizabeth as head of state, but in many ways we are a kind of republic. We don't have royals in Australia, so it was kind of unusual to run into those kind of people. But aside from that it was quite ordinary.

> I might have some Danish lessons sometimes.

> I am happy to continue with my journey through time.

> I mean, every child at one stage dreams of being a prince or a princess.

> I am, more than anything else, happy.

> Sometimes you have to keep things very close to your own chest in your life, or this life.

> There's not as many people as one would think you can be completely open with.

> At 40 years old you simply know what life is about.

> My mother would do anything for her children. And that's how I am too.

'........Let me conclude by giving you a Mexican proverb. 'C?maron que se duerme se lo lleva la chingada', or in English: 'a shrimp that sleeps gets carried by the tide........'

Apparently in Mexico 'C?maron que se duerme se lo lleva la chingada' means something along the lines of 'A sleeping shrimp is fucked.'  Wink

The scene was so funny, WA quite proud of his gift of eloquence, the audience reacts with a tad of stunned silence, then like at school, the first start to burst into giggles and then the entire room is roaring with laughter...and Wimlex looks quite surprised with that result.

Wouldn't put it past her, but in any case I think she fell off her chair laughing and wonder if he ever hears the end of it....

Mades me wonder if this is soley Mexican slang or that is more widly known.
I once encountered a Mexican exchange student who complained she had a hard time understanding another exchange student from Equador, even as they both spoke Spanish Wink
So I could understand that this meaning of the phrase/word is familiar in Mexico, but not in Argentinian Spanish (Maxima's Spanish)
