  1. That’s so funny!!! Just the other day at work, a coworker asked me for something and I was surprised, so much so that I forgot to say it in English and that’s how I said “Vixi Maria!!” And my coworker was wondering what I had just said. I will show this to her. By the way, “Vixi Maria” is another way to say “Ixi Maria” Which I thing it is a short for “Virgem Maria”.
