Portuguese Language Expressions #9

The Portuguese Language Expression of this week is “Juntar os pauzinhos”, “to put little sticks together”. The best translation would be “to put two and two together”.

This idiom is used when we want to say that someone might guess something by the facts or clues… Here are some examples:

Tome cuidado, pois sua mãe pode juntar os pauzinhos e descobrir que você está saindo com ele

O artista foi visto saindo da casa da cantora e, na semana passada, os dois compareceram a uma festa juntos. Se juntarmos os pauzinhos, tudo leva a crer que estão namorando.
