My ladies! Efkharisto...Parakalo...

The book says parakalo means 'please' and efkharisto means 'thank you'. Parakalo also means 'you're welcome'. You say efkharisto and you get a parakalo back, like magic. And every time I've heard someone answer the phone they say parakalo. Parakalo also works for excuse me to get someone's attention and it works for offering something, like the Japanese dozo.

I wonder if I'm going to learn any more Greek words? Yes! Now I am going to practice delicious. If the last few days are any example it's a word I'll be sure to be using.
