Learn Greek with GreekPod101.com! Your friend asks you in Greek, “Are you ready for the big fast before Easter?” You respond in Greek, “Who looks forward to fasting? But the benefits are that it’s an enforced diet just in time to get us ready to go to the beach.” Your friend replies in Greek, “Well, don’t worry…it wouldn’t be a fast if we didn’t have an opportunity to eat well first.” You respond in Greek, “Are you telling me I need to stuff myself at this event to make up for lost calories later?” Your friend responds in Greek, “Well, don’t offend the other guests by being a pig, but be mindful of the fact that we do have a long fast approaching.” You reply in Greek, “In other words, hide food in my napkin to eat later tonight too!”
