‘Dos Mundos” – The Spanish language text at my school.

My neighbor called Raymundo. Or world. Or Telemundo

Around here, the Hispanic population is so small that if you hear ‘mundo,’ it’s very likely coming from somebody who’s stretching his high school Spanish, perhaps in an effort to seem more cosmopolitan.

@mrmijunte I’ve got a neighbor named Raimondo. Imagine the odds.

World—I think of telemundo, then my brain checks itself for menudo, then I regroup and think “world.”

I think of WB Yeats; ”...hardly are those words out when a vast image of Spiritus Mundi troubles my sight.”

One of the Italian words for ‘garbage’ is ‘immondizia,’ It doesn’t seem to actually be related to ‘mondo,’ ‘mundo,’ or even ‘mundus,’ but I always thought that it sounded like you could translate it as “not of this world,” with the strong implication that it really ought to be festering in Hell.

Fun language, Italian.

Reminds me of the spanish word for “world”: el mundo.

It also reminds me of my spanish teacher at school, and the mobile classroom we worked in with its various posters and two-seated tables. It reminds me of the person I sat next to, all the vocabulary tests we had, and the classes after school just after P.E.

As for inspiration, it does not inspire me. I did okay at spanish but don’t really have any interest to continue with it to become fluent.

Not sure if that is what you wanted as an answer.

It makes me think of Mondos, those sugar water drinks I loved when I was a kid,
the twist off caps turn into whistles!
