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

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 […]
