Slangy Sabados: So Stinky It Roars
I think I've just discovered my new favorite Mexican expression.
Last weekend we went camping for 2 nights. As we pack up the van under the sweltering afternoon sun, I sniff my armpit and say to Noel, "I'm a little stinky."
"Te ruge la ardilla?" he asks.
"What?? What's that mean?"
"The squirrel is roaring," he says with an impish grin.
Te ruge la ardilla: When your armpit (ie., your "squirrel") is so stinky it roars like a lion.
