Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Modorro!

That feeling you have after just waking up.  When you’re kind of awake, but not really.  More asleep, going through the motions, a little bit angry, grumpy, annoyed, just generally in an unpleasant mood all together.  Yes, in that precise moment you are exactly what this particular Mexi-Vocabulario word defines.  […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Gacho!

So apparently I’m this.  Or this is me.  ¡Gacho!  According to WikiLatino, unpleasant and ugly.  If we go by the Urban Dictionary‘s definition instead, the opposite of “chido”, which means cool, so “gacho” would mean ‘not cool’ or ‘stupid,’ but not so much the word “stupid” but think of it […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Chongo! ¡Chonguda! ¡Chongalicious!

This post is dedicated to the one and only Salmita Hayek.  No, not because I am a huge fan.  Yes, she is definitely hot, and yes, it’s probably weird that me, as a man, find her incredibly annoying and not very talented at all.  Considering the fact too that I […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Ocicón!

Because if ever there was a time to be ocicón… or ocicóna, it is today. Although probably not entirely in the way you might be thinking. No, not to yell at the top of our lungs for no good reason.  Though if you were anything like me as a kid […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Y a Lo Que Te Truje Chencha!

So this is less of a Mexi-Vocabulario, and more of a Mexi-Frase!  But how many more of these Mexi labels are you all going to let me get away with?  No sé.  Mejor, I’ll play it safe and file this under Mexi-Vocabulario.  So… how many of us have not already […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Bañársela!

¡Te la bañáste! ¡Nombre, ya ni la amuelas!  ¡No te la acabas! All variations of the single act of bañársela, or perhaps more comprehensible, as the act of overstepping one’s boundaries, be they self-imposed or otherwise.  In non-mexicano or straight up Spanish, you might assume this Mexi-Vocabulario term might have […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Chambear!

A chambear… ¿pues qué más nos queda?  No hay de otra.  Because 1) yesterday was Labor Day, a time to honor all of the gente bien chambeadora that have made things like holidays, overtime pay and weekends possible for all of us, and 2) because how many of us did […]

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Tragón!

¡Tragón!  ¡Comelón!  ¡Ya deja de estar comiendo!  For some reason those words don’t seem all that unfamiliar to me.  Aunque por lo menos,  someone should have told me that later on in my life it would be perfectly okay to be considered the family “garbage disposal.”  Maybe then I wouldn’t […]
