A crying pal valley

Almost everyone has said this to a friend. This phrase is usually directed to a person who did not follow advice in due course or made bad decisions. "I told you not to go back with that guy, now to cry pal 'valley"

You are hairy.

deals with large amounts of hair in the middle of the road. This phrase we use almost every day to refer to something that is difficult to achieve, such as "that test was hairy" or "conquering that woman is too pissy". Our lexical fixation with this word family is also seen in the following term.

One hair.

We use this term to create different expressions: "Stay one more hair at the party", "wait for me a hair that I need to brush." Basically we mean that it is something short or small. Sometimes we vary it by "a little bit", which is even a minor measure: "give me a tad of your juice to pass the bite."

Although used in other Latin American countries, it is very Venezuelan to say. It refers to paying attention, or rather, not doing so. Usually we use it to complain to someone else when they do not hear us or do not look at us: "you're not stopping me" or "stop watching the TV and stop balls". We can even refer to what we like and do not correspond to us: "I do not call for balls".

Short note

The ladilla, that parasitic insect that is usually located in intimate areas and become a torture for its bearer, gave rise to this analogy. We use the term to describe someone who is unbearable or a boring or uncomfortable situation: "my sister is a ladilla, do not invite her" or "I was ladilladísimo at that party, so I left."

in third person of us. A man might say "my Jeva is a dentist" or "that Jeva is ugly". It is a term - urban - that refers to a "flame", "girl", girlfriend or acquaintance. And yes, it sounds terrible, because although it is not necessarily a macho word, it sounds like "she is my female".

You will bite a teddy. strong>

Liveliness is a virtue And a defect of the Venezuelan. There is no situation that we do not try to take advantage of. But when there is one who wants to get ready, he is told "Mi'jo, he is going to bite you a teddy", or "you will run over an ice cream cart" or "do not fly because you get caught in the cables".

or worried about something that is expected to happen or is happening now. However, as Venezuelans are fresh and spontaneous, this is a simple way to show interest in an activity and to invite someone informally. For example, when you invite your friends to have a drink, no diplomacy: with "pending a few tantrums ?, what's there for today?" Is sufficient.

You got me up to the crown.

It is common in youthful vocabulary, and is a term that has evolved from the expression "hard face". As you may have noticed, it means being "cheeky". And examples ... are over.
