spanish word of the day: abrigar

Abrigar. (verb) To bundle up. To protect oneself from the cold.

As I was leaving the apartment with my bike, I ran into my elderly neighbor, Sr. Braulio.

“Vas en bici?” He asked, looking a little dubious. (Are you going by bike?)

“Siiii,” I replied. Then followed with, “Tengo mis guantes, mi bufonda…” (I got my gloves, my scarf…)

“Ahh…” He responded. “Hay que abrigar!”(Ya gotta bundle up!)
