I only just realised today that the Spanish word for “umbrella” is “paraguas”.
Para. Aguas.
For. Waters. 😂
And I think this is beautiful.

    Jaja I think, in this case "para" came from "parar" and not from "for" , but... It's still funny, "Stop.Waters"

    Hi bud, actually “para” is from verb “parar” (To Stop) but yep you’re right it could be understood as “for” 😂
