As anyone who reads my blog knows…I am the #1 fan of our Old Skool from the Ranch … my tias, tio and Dad come up with the most hilarious words and sayings…
Here are a few words that you will so enjoy:
TIRILONGO meaning niiiiice or looking good. Tia Becky said this yesterday when she saw my Dad dressed up in his charro suit for a gig, “ay Miguel…llegas todo tirilongo!”
TUTURUSCU meaning drunk or druda (combination of drunk and cruda). Tia Becky remembers saying this on occasion to Tio Willie (RIP) or to her Frankie when they would come home tipsy, “mira como llegas…andas tuturuscu!”
Tia Lili is known to break out with the following: “Can you imaginarse?” LOL
And if Tia Becky’s Panchito is reading this one…your Mom had us rolling when she tells the story about how you came home ‘tuturuscu’ talking and talking, threw your shirt on the floor, ready to go to bed after a night of partying…and she made you get ready to go to ‘la cebolla’ to work the onions with no sleep. Then, as Frankie tends to do that ‘guiri guiri’ when he’s ‘tuturuscu’, you were driving her crazy in the car talking and talking on the way to the field in Linden and she had to shut you down by saying, “ya callate Panchito!” Just in case you don’t remember Frankie, Sylvia Tvita had your back and felt bad that your Mom made you go to the fields! LOL
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear our old skool go on and on … we are blessed no doubt to have the Jefes del Rancho around … they are life of any Ranch Party!
