horn, sangria, shoehorn, "Shoehorning"

Some care far more about location than home size. For them, a tiny home in the desired New York City neighborhood will do.



Is it happy hour yet? Stop by The Wright restaurant today after our Gerard & Kelly performance for summer sangria, 5-8 pm:http://gu.gg/Ok40R




sangria


Line breaks: san|gria
Pronunciation: /saŋˈɡriːə/




Definition of sangria in English:

noun

[MASS NOUN]
A Spanish drink of red wine mixed with lemonade, fruit, and spices:[COUNT NOUN]: can’t choose between a margarita and a sangria?



Origin

Spanish, literally 'bleeding'; compare with sangaree.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoehorn
"Shoehorning" has come to mean, mostly in American English, the act of coercing or pressuring an individual into a situation which does not leave enough room, either literally or figuratively. Shoehorning in a conversational context means to force someone to take one of a limited number of positions, neither of which may adequately express what the individual wants to say (a "For me or against me"-scenario). Shoehorning in a more literal sense can express itself as pushing a number of individuals into an overfilled enclosure of space, such as a theater or a bus ("the usher shoehorned us into the back of the crowded theater").
Shoehorning can also refer to an unnatural-seeming inclusion of something for reasons which may range anywhere from demographic-pleasing or political correctness (for example, a token character in a television show or film). In this context, Shoehorning can also refer to including or forcing characters into a plot who have little-to-no reason to be there except for appeal or marquee value.
It can also refer to fitting something where it does not easily fit. The shortened expression honking (as in honking around town) derives from this term, referring to inserting one's self into a place or situation where one does not easily fit or is not welcome.

A shoehorn or shoe horn (sometimes called a shoespooner) is a tool that lets the user put on a shoe more easily.

鞋拔子或鞋拔是一種穿鞋時更為方便的工具。它使得鞋保持張開狀態,在腳後跟與鞋後幫之間提供了一個光滑表面,避免了鞋後幫貼住腳後跟而使得穿鞋時腳難以進入鞋裡。現今,其材質主要是塑料、木製、竹製、金屬制。

鞋拔子的形狀基本類似,除了其手柄有長有短。長手柄的鞋拔子適合穿長筒靴,或者體弱者、老年人穿鞋時不需彎腰或蹲下。




靴べら(くつべら、靴箆)とは、を履くために使用される、へらである。関西地区では「靴すべり」とも呼ばれる。靴を履く時にかかとに当てて、靴に足を入りやすくするために用いられる。その素材も形状も大きさも様々だが、その使用法から、表面は滑らかに仕上げられていて、厚さは薄めに作られており、ヒトのかかとの横幅よりも幅は狭く作られている。なお、靴を履く習慣のない文化圏においては、靴べらが無用の長物となるのは言わずもがなである。
