spanish word of the day: caber

Caber (verb) - to fit, to have room for.

As is my usual habit on Thursdays, I go have a coffee and a churrito in the cafeteria at school after my first and only class of the day. Today, the churritos weren't yet ready when I arrived and ordered my coffee. The guy who runs the cafeteria set out a mini muffin for me to eat while the churritos finished cooking.

"Oh, no..." I protested, "Yo puedo esperar por el churrito." (I can wait for the churrito.)

"Tu eres grande," he replied. "Te cabe!" (You're big. You have room for it!)

Sir!!
