Lo + Adjective

Lo + adjective is handy when you need a way to describe general characteristics or qualities.  So, for example, if you want to say 'the good thing is' or 'the boring thing is’ in Spanish, you can use lo bueno es and lo aburrido es

The good news (lo bueno) in terms of strategizing is that the two components of the expression don’t change with {gender}.  They stay the same:  Lo is always lo, and the adjective always has to be in the {masculine form}, no matter what.
