    Smile "como a veces soy tan bruto que sólo pienso y me fijo en lo que tengo delante"

    "como a veces soy tan bruto que sólo pienso y me fijo en lo que tengo delante - creo compartir ese bruticie con la mayoria de mis semejantes, vaya eso en mi descargo" -

    Any ideas on how to translate this sentence from an article in a Spanish Newspaper? My rather clumsy effort would be:

    As i am on occasions so pig-headed, i only think and pay attention to the here and now - i rekon i share that brutishness with most men, well thats my defence anyway..

    Cualquier sugerencias?

    abrazos

    Default Hi Scrumpydoo!

    I like your suggestion...Let me give another option for the first part, "I´m such a dumb head I can´t see further than my own nose most of the time..."

    Hi SD, here is my proposal !!!

    Some times I am so close-minded, that I can’t see beyond my nose. I believe I share this weakness with most human beings ... that makes me feel better !!!! (or that’s my relief )

    Regards

    Hebe
