5 phrases you shouldn’t believe when a Mexican says them
“No pica” means “it’s not spicy at all”
Foreigners no longer trust us because every time we say this phrase, their food ends up being the spiciest food ever made. In our defense, it wasn’t spicy at all.
“Ahorita” means “Just one second”
Scientists are still trying to figure out how much time “ahorita” means. It seems like it can vary between one minute, one hour, five hours, one day… or never.
“La última y nos vamos” means “This is our last drink, then well go”
Whenever we say this phrase we really mean it! But… any decision can change with mezcal.
“Ya voy saliendo” means “I’m on my way”
Every Mexican has sent this message from home, even when they’ve not even finished getting ready.
“Hoy algo tranqui” means “Today we’ll just chill”
When say that… We end up singing songs of Juaga (Juan Gabriel) in a bar at 4am.
