Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡No Manches!

Literally, as in: Don’t Stain. But that doesn’t make any sense, of course. Instead let’s think about this word in the practical form. When you make somebody mad because your bad decision is affecting them, they might tell you: ¡No Manches!  When you’re lying and pretty much everyone knows you’re lying. ¡No […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: Aventón

This is part of a collaboration with DriveShop. All opinions expressed are my own. As in ¡echame un aventón! Give me a lift. A ride. That’s what we got the last couple of weeks on the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Limited edition. Un aventón around the whole city, for two weeks. This […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: Pellejo

Pellejo. It’s one of those words I’ve heard all of my life. Although until one of our recent road trips, I had all but forgotten about it to be quite honest. We were driving to California, past New Mexico somewhere, when all of the sudden the deejay on the radio […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Ay Aja!

Like totally. We haven’t done one of these in such a long time that it was only fitting to start back up with an ¡Ay aja! I first heard this term while Juan was watching one of his novelas. The young chica fresa in the scene was expressing her disbelief for what she was hearing […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Entripado!

Right about what I’m feeling right now.  Again, like I’ve done many times before, today I decided to skip lunch.  I figured I would work through my lunch – you know, suppress my hunger by drinking lots of water and chewing gum (a model’s diet if you will) – and […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Tiliches!

Pos for me they’re anything but useless, but for some they might as well be trash.  Thrown right in there with all of the other undesirables that we find no use for anymore right before we send them off to massive landfills.  It’s funny actually.  The irony of life is […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Chorro!

As in a lot.  No, not just a little bit of a lot.  But a lot of a lot.  ¡Un chingo!  Some might say.  ¡Un chorro!  To be more color de rosa with our choice of words. Not that you have to be of course. It had been a long […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Chapeada!

A couple of weeks ago I was watching the novela Amores Verdaderos with my mom.  I haven’t been watching a lot of telenovelas lately.  I still think Kate Del Castillo’s La Reina Del Sur has pretty much ruined all telenovelas for me right now.  Every time I try to watch a […]
