The Mexican says some pretty funny things.  He always has me laughing.  I've thought about calling his mixed up sayings Mexican-isms. 

I want to stress that I am not making fun of my media naranja.  I think the way he mixes things up is cute.  He laughs at a lot of things I say in Spanish as well. 

A couple of days ago our son was running a fever and not feeling well.  He was refusing to take ibuprofen.  The Mexican says, "Take it papa.  You'll feel better if you take it.  I felt sick too.  I felt like I was going to throw-out but after mama gave me the medicine, I feel much better."   What he meant to say was.... throw-up.

I started reminiscing today and found myself laughing out loud.
I'd like to share some of the Mexican-isms I remember.....

Me- What kind of car do they drive?
The Mexican- An Exploder.
Me- A what?  Do you mean an Explorer?

The Mexican- Do we have any tissue?  My nose is leaking.
Me- You say running, its, my nose is running.
The Mexican- Well, that makes no sense.My nose is leaking makes more sense.
Me- yes, your right but say it the other way, ok?

Me- Does he work?
The Mexican- He's retarded.
Me- what!  That's not nice!
The Mexican- He's retarded, you know, retarded..... when you do not have to work anymore.
Me- you mean RETIRED!


  1. LMFAO i am rofl laughing at the retarded lol

  2. Cabrona,
    That was a funny one! Glad u thought so too. He said it all innocently and getting frustrated with me (like why does she not understand).......

  3. I love it. Thanks for sharing. It reminds me of my dad.

  4. I think my favorite is exploder. You have to love the little slip-ups.

  5. Haha! This is too cute! Thanks for sharing. :)

  6. Hilarious! My ex used to say "I don't can..." for about six month. I thought it was cute but finally I had to correct him.

  7. LMAO ... These are all funny. He's right about "leaking" -- makes more sense, for sure! *shaking head* hee-hee-hee ; D

  8. Lol this is so funny I think I will become a big fan of your blog :)

  9. He sure is right about that! Why on earth would a nose be running?! LOL. Great post :-)

  10. Thanks guys for commenting! =)

  11. ROFL at running nose makes no sense. I'm not going to lie, I have said that it makes no sense myself. Whenever my sister or someone would say my nose is running, my aunt would say vete y buscala/go get it, lol.

    Thanks for the laughs...

    1. I have to agree. It really doesn't make much sense.

  12. My step dad spoke a little Spanish while my Grandmother and Mother spoke a little English. Shortly after they married, he was looking everywhere for his 'dientes'. My mother and grandmother kept looking at each other wondering what kind of "dientes" this gringo could have lost. Finally after turning over the small apartment, he successfully found his "lentes" and thus solving the mystery.

    1. That is hilarious. Thanks for sharing your story! I love reading stories like this and knowing our family is like so many others.
