Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Cholo Word Of The Day - Aguitado

Again, I've heard this used by many people, not only cholos, but it's a pretty cool word and I'd like to use it.


Meaning According To DT:
down, embarrassed, depressed

Used in a sentence:

"No te aguites Chon, te puedes encontrar otra, bien rapido."

"No es eso Chago, es que a la Candy, si la queria."

Translation according to DT:
"Do get down on yourself Chon, you can find another one, real fast."

"That's no it Santiago, it's that I really did like Dulcelina."

Note: Dulcelina, is usually Dulce, but since we love changing names, here we call her "la Candy."

Just want to say that, not only is that word said in S. Texas, but its said by any person that is from mexican origens or descendents.
Second, its cool having a Texican word of the day but "Cholo word of the day" come on.

making me look bad, los cholos ni si qiera saben hablar espaeñol.

Well looking forward for your next word of the day.

In my day (70s) I thought it meant not to give up or wimp out.
