Mecha

This is a discussion thread for the Daily Spanish Word for January 8, 2009

mecha - feminine noun (la) - wick, fuse. Look up mecha in the dictionary

A veces es difícil encender una vela porque la mecha no tiene cera.
Sometimes it's hard to light a candle because the wick doesn't have any wax on it.

Not everyone is familiar with that word, only sci-fi and anime lovers.
