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 - En Chinga

Well, I'm not sure if this is necessarily a "cholo" word, but it's pretty damn close. I have to post "en chinga."

Word:
En Chinga

Meaning According To DT: haste, fast, freakin' quick, in a hurry
(might be considered a curse word, depending on who you're talking to)

Used in a sentence:
"Pollo, vamos en chinga al H-E-B porque la jefita quiere queso para las enchiladas."

"Nombre Chinche, they went to get the cheese last week at the escuelin."

Translation according to DT:
"Pollo, let's go really quick to H-E-B because mom wants cheese for the enchiladas."

"No Bedbug, they went to get cheese last week at the school."

Bonus Word:

Escuelin: School

side note: I never did really laugh at those "cheese line" jokes, but I was always the kid in that line, and damn that cheese is good!

Yeah, I always was taught that the "ch" word was pretty bad. Now don't ask me what it means, cause I have no clue.
