A cuentagotas


My browser translates the sentence:

Como él, los músicos también esperan a los visitantes que a cuentagotas van llegando a un Puerto Nuevo que despierta según dicen, de un mal sueño.

to

Like him, the musicians also wait for the visitors who, by dropper, are arriving at a New Port that wakes up, they say, from a bad dream.

Can't blame it too much; before today, I can't recall hearing "dribs and drabs". :biggrin:

Is that a common American English term?


Common in my Scrabble playing family. :)
