Happy Valentine's day

Yes. The word Enfureser would be the most correct translation for your bother.

¡Hoy no hay mohínes, enfurruñamientos, malas caras ni nada!
I also gave my wife a little Valentin's bouquet. She deserves it, she works a lot!!!

The word mohino in my country is a turtle as are named the turtles at Villahermosa.

Now, as you have said Sosia, your wife deserves that and most than it.

I believe that every wifes of the whole world deserves love and peace of their dear being.


Hey mohina is a turtle in my country. Then you be careful when you say Mohina in my country, because you can get a big turtle for eat.

Perhaps Sosia was using la acepción novena, in its plural form.

Estar enfurruñado o estar de morros se usa mucho con los niños, pues no es un enfado serio.
