Am I the only one that thought Duo was calling us stupid? "You are special pat pat But orange is not a number."
One of the possible translations of 'speciale' is listed as 'special slalom'.
Can anyone shed light on what that is; I've never heard of a slalom, but perhaps that is just my inexperience talking.
A slalom is a type of racing used in skiing - where you have to weave in and out of the flags down the piste... However, what a "special slalom" is, is new to me!!
Maybe it's not referring to skiing, but automotive rally? There are special stages which include slaloms called special stages (SS).
It sounds as if they were consoling somebody who has lately been listening a bit too much to Radiohead thus crying out "I wish I was special" in despair. We're indeed all special in our own peculiar ways.
Just for soccer fans: Tu sei "the special one", does that ring the bells?
