I like making up my own words, why? I really don’t know. Maybe I was a thwarted linguist in my past life or I’m just plain outlandish. So here are some words I often use, so you won’t find yourself lost-in-translation when we’re having a conversation.
Chuchis [pronounced choo-cheese] – meaning excess fat, love handles, bilbil (in pinoy lingo); i.e. “Girlfriend, your chuchis are showing from wearing that smaller size shirt.”
Do-Me-A [pronounced doo-mee-aah] – meaning push over, someone unable to resist an attraction or appeal, easily cheated or deceived; i.e “Would you stop being a Do-Me-A, it’s outrageously pathetic.”
Ghetto Fabulous [pronounce ge-toe-fab-u-lose] – meaning inferior, faulty or unpleasant; i.e. “This defective paper shredder is just ghetto fabulous.”
Sloppy Joe [pronounced sla-pee- jo] – pertains to a caucasian guy, white guy (without stereotyping) or an average looking guy; i.e. “There’s really nothing attractive about him, he’s just a sloppy joe.”
Samantha [pronounce sa-man-tah] – pertains to a transvestite, men dress like women or a woman who looks like a man; i.e. “That guy looks so Samantha!”
