Questa me la lego al dito

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression, Questa me la lego al dito (literally: This I tie to my finger), which means I won’t forget it.  See the expression used below in its context:

Mio cugino si è mangiato tutta la torta che era rimasta in frigorifero, non è giusto! Questa me la lego al dito! Mi vendicherò!

My cousin ate all the cake that had been left in the fridge, and it’s not right!  I won’t forget it!  I will avenge myself!

NB: Ciao a tutti! I received a bunch of emails the last couple of weeks about how people were disappointed there wasn’t a word of the day. I apologize, and I wanted to let everyone know that I am in a graduate program and doing a thesis so the last few weeks have been really stressful so I apologize for letting the ball drop.  Thank you for your patience and support!  When I receive emails, it means that people are reading and taking an interest in the site.  Grazie mille!
