Quizas estas soprendida que escoji la palabra "plata." 
Hay muchas palabras en espanol que son bonitas.  Escoji plata solomente por una razon. 

Si lean mi blog, usetedes sepan que mi esposo se enoja cuando hablo de  plata. Para el plata es plata.  Para mi es chistoso , no ponerlo triste.  El se enoja y eso es divertida.  Para el significa dinero y siempre me mira con ojos grandes y como estoy loca pero estoy hablando de dinero no de plata.  Yo se que plata para los Colombianos es dinero y para los Mexicanos es plata.

English translation:
Today I learned about the Dia de "E" (Day of "E") A celebration for everyone who speaks Spanish.Tomorrow the celebration start and of course I want to participate.
Perhaps you are surprised I chose the word plata (silver).There are a lot of words in Spanish that are beautiful.  I chose plata (silver) for one reason only.
Video translation - "my  favorite word in Spanish is plata.  I learned this word from a Colombian friend.  I like to say plata to make my husband mad, but all in good fun"

If you read my blog you know that my husband gets mad when i talk about plata.  For him plata is silver.  For me it is funny, not to make him sad.  He gets mad and well, that's kids of fun for me. He always looks at me with these big eyes and like I'm crazy but I'm talking about money, not silver.  I know that plata for Colombians is money, (although slang i think)  and plata for Mexicans is silver.

  13. Loved it! In Puerto Rico is the same as Mexico. We must have those words of endearments, right :)

  14. You know I've always known "plata" to mean both silver and money. It's an antiquated slang term, but one commonly heard in old Mexican movies of the Tintan and Cantinflas eras. It's still in use by some people though. I've heard "Chilangos" or those people from the "Distrito Federal" say it. More pervasive is "lana" which means both wool and money.
