Bilingual Friday: Don’t be A Chismosa


The hubs list of spanish vocabulary has been growing slow and steady since we met. After almost 7 years of marriage i’d say he’s figured out a few of the funny slang words he knows when to use.

During our recent trip to California we stopped at one of our favorite taco spot to eat. We sat outdoors to enjoy the weather and during our feast we hear this loud sound followed by a few honks and hollers.

The traffic in the neighborhood we were at is always a mess something is always going on. I turn to see what is going on and the hubs laughs at me. I look at him and ask what?? He tells me “ohh look hahaha Stop being a chismosa you know how it is here”

We both laughed! You know for someone who isn’t fluent in Spanish he sure knows when to use when to use slang the right way.

Chismosa means gossiper but can be interpreted to be nosey which is exactly what I was being when I turned to see what was going on knowing I had no business.

The lesson here according to the hubs “Don’t be a Chismosa!” *heehee*

La lista de vocabulario español de mi Hubs ha creciendo lenta y constante desde que nos conocimos . Después de casi 7 años de matrimonio yo diría que él ha descubierto algunas de las palabras divertidas que sabe cuándo utilizars .

Durante nuestro reciente viaje a California nos detuvimos en uno de nuestro lugar favoritos para comer tacos. Nos sentamos al aire libre para disfrutar del clima y durante nuestro bocadillo escuchamos un sonido fuerte seguido de un par de bocinazos de auto y gritos.

El tráfico en la vecindad donde estábamos es siempre un lío siempre está pasando algo. Doy vuelta para ver lo que está pasando y mi Hubs se ríe de mí. Lo miro y le pregunto qué? Él me dice ” ohh mirar hahaha Deja de ser una chismosa tu sabes cómo es aquí ”

Los dos nos reímos ! Saben para alguien que no habla bien el español seguro que sabe cuando utilizar la jerga de la manera correcta .

La lección aquí de acuerdo con lo que dice el Hubs ” No seas Chismosa ! ” * heehee *
